    Greg Salinger was just your typical merc for hire - FOOLKILLER - killing those that he deemed to be "foolish." And for money. But that life is behind him now. Today, he's a psychiatrist, trying to help others. But now S.H.I.E.L.D. wants him to try to rehabilitate super villains. The catch? If these "patients" don't make enough progress, they're dead!

    Max Bemis' FOOLKILLER #1 is a glorious relaunch of a forgotten Marvel character. Once a "Poor man's Punisher", Greg Salinger AKA Foolkiller, balances a typical day of being a therapist for criminals and taking extreme measures if they fail to progress. Read Full Review

    For a title that could have started as a grimdark-quipfest-appetizer for Deadpool, this looks like a very strong start to a series that has something to say. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Nov 7, 2016

    Most of this first issue is spent getting to know the current Foolkiller, Greg Salinger. Greg is a psychotherapist who is counseling a troubled youth who was modeling himself after the Red Skull. Through Greg's internal monologue we get to know his own internal struggles as he's coming to grips with his new life, and the challenge of keeping his old life as Foolkiller at bay. The writing and art compliment each other quite well and the ending had me guessing about just where this book is headed next. Because of the current Deadpool series and my dislike for Solo, I was about to pass this series by. Thank goodness I didn't, this is a series I'll continue to follow"I mean, I'd be a fool if I didn't! Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Nov 8, 2016

    The artwork is as goofy and entertainment as the writing, and brings it to life really bloody well. We have no real clue as to where this book will go, and it's exciting. We were apprehensive going into Foolkiller #1, but we're on board now! Read Full Review

    It's kinda out of left field, but Foolkiller is a quality addition to the Marvel catalog. Read Full Review

    I'm not too sure what to expect, but I'm excited to see how Bemis is going to follow this up. This is a series that will be a great read for all Marvel fans, but mostly those who are looking for something new. Bemis' sophisticated writing style along with Talajic's expressive artistry creates the perfect book! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 2, 2016

    The first issue has some good and it has some bad and as a first issue I want to come back and see what's next. The big thing for me going forward is how this series sets itself apart from the group of comics it orbits in. So far, they all feel a bit too similar and lack that special something.

    Don't know much about this character but this issue sold me on Foolkiller. Great writing, humor, and introduction to the series.

    A really unique series, didn't expect much from this but was very surprised by the premise, direction and content (knowing almost nothing about the character prior to the series). I'd recommend this to anyone looking for something a bit different from Marvel.

    FoolKiller is an interesting mix of Punisher and Dexter. The superhero version of a guy compelled to kill people that are a problem to society is an interesting one. It is hard to say if this will continue to be catching since it so early on but there is promise here. The art had a fitting style. The writing is the stand out for this so far I think.
