    IGN - Oct 6, 2008

    I realize that my whole spiel here sounds like a third-grade simplification of how a sequential story should be told, but I've read many an adaptation that fails with the basics. This one doesn't. Ultimately, Battle School #1 is both congenial and pretty. Pasqual Ferry's artwork is worth the price of admission alone, so science fiction fans (especially those who haven't read the book) should have no excuse to pass this one up. I'm increasingly impressed by Marvel's recent run of adaptations, and this one is yet another testament to their existence. Read Full Review

    The issue moves very methodically, as if it's fully aware the story has years and multiple mini-series in which to be told. I imagine many readers, mainly the newcomers, will be left sorely wanting for more. Battle School #1 is a good start to what looks to be a very long and consuming investment. Unfortunately, given the problems I found with issue #1, I look forward to the prospect of reading the novels more than I do of following the comics. Mission accomplished? Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Andrew C. Murphy Oct 6, 2008

    For those of us who have read the book, this series may seem redundant, since it doesn't add anything that isn't in the original. (Most of the dialogue is lifted word for word.) For those that haven't, this is a good place to start, if you can stand waiting between installments. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 8, 2008

    A very promising start to this adaptation and I was quite pleased with it. Very much looking forward to the next issue and Ender's arrival at Battle School. Read Full Review
