    If you're interested in what impact Infinity arc will have on the rest of the Marvel Universe, this is a great example. You're taken away from the main portion of the action and are treated to an interesting story. Plus, you'll want to see how much butt the Silver Surfer kicks. If you've never read an Infinite Comic, you need to check this out. Read Full Review

    Latour's storyboards are key to the issue's success, because Alessio's painted style is the exact sort of approach that so rarely works in comics. Too often, painters deliver a series of individually striking panels that fail to combine and form any sort of sequential flow. Instead, this issue offers a best of both worlds scenario. Readers get all the detail and scope of painted art, but the focus is always on how the figures move and interact and how each moment transitions into the next. Surfer summoning his board to slice an Aleph in half is easily one of the most memorable sequences seen in an Infinite Comic so far. The worst that could be said is that Alessio's Skrulls are too pretty and not alien enough. Read Full Review

    Those who redeemed the Digital Edition code from "Infinity" #1 were given the option to download this story in tandem with the digital version for the first issue of Jonathan Hickman's Thanos-powered event. For the rest of their readership, Marvel fumbled this one. Early after release of "Infinity" #1, "Infinity: Against the Tide" #1 appeared on comiXology for $1.99, but no details were given about this download accompanying the digital download of the main comic. Luckily, folks on Twitter were helpful in working through this, but I have no doubt more than a few readers are woefully ignorant that this additional story is ready for their reading. While it doesn't magnify the story in "Infinity" nor supplant that tale, "Infinity: Against the Tide" #1 does help address the scope of this adventure as it provides readers with a great example of the power of Marvel's Infinite Comics line.

    All in all, it looks to be a good offshoot series, and the ending leaves you wanting to read the next installment. Id say this is a pick up for any fan of the Gun-Metal Wakeboarder, any fan of Marvel, or just those who are digging on the Infinity series with an eye to the next Avengers movie. Read Full Review
