    I got to hand it to Marvel. They could have just cut together some pieces of the series in question and charged full price for what amounts to a collection of pages from future product you might buy anyway, but they instead commissioned original shorts leading into each title. The only caveat I have is that the cover would have been greatly improved with Tigra replacing Pym. Read Full Review

    Enter the Heroic Age proves to be a good bargain for the price. With most of the stories succeeding at both teasing larger projects and offering cohesive adventures in their own right, this is easily Marvel's most successful attempt at the format yet. If the series in question are as good as they look in these pages, I think Marvel fans have plenty to be excited about in the coming months. Read Full Review

    I'm interested to see how these new titles fare among readers and reviewers alike. This issue is not must-read stuff, but if you're teased by advance solicits and want to get some idea of what's going to be worthy of your hard earned cash, this issue is a good, affordable sampler.

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Nolan May 21, 2010

    Jeff Parker's second story relaunches THUNDERBOLTS (again). Yes DC used the same idea back in Suicide Squad, but who cares? The theme brings excellent conflict, a chance of redemption and this short story makes Luke Cage really shine. Read Full Review

    The aim is, of course, to entice you into trying five new books, rather than enjoying this on its own, so understand that going in. You do get a fun grab bag, offering different sub-genres under the superhero umbrella - - crime, action, espionage, and so on. I'd recommend this to anybody who's considering any of these five new books and needs some samples to decide which ones to pick up. Read Full Review
