    Even though Marvel Divas isn't a series for your average fanboys, it's definitely one unique and creative piece. Read Full Review

    This comic certainly isn't for everyone - the only fight scenes are a couple of one-panel flashbacks - but if you're willing to stick a toe into the pool of romance comics, you could do worse. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Matthew J. Brady Jun 30, 2009

    Of course, this all begs the question of what the purpose of the book really is. Is Marvel trying to capture the elusive female audience here and get them hooked on their rich universe? Perhaps, but it seems odd to almost completely ignore the costumes and powers; if you like this, Marvel doesn't really have anywhere for you to go next. Still, it's a mostly enjoyable read, even if it does wear its inspiration on its sleeve. Aguirre-Sacasa seems to be relating a nice little slice-of-superheroine-life drama; it should be pleasant enough while it lasts. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 4, 2009

    While some parts of the story fell flat, I was actually quite pleased with the purchase. The book isn't for everyone, but if you like SpiderMan Loves Mary Jane or even BKV's first volume of Runaways, you'll probably enjoy the dialogue and feel of this miniseries. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 2, 2009

    . Marvel Divas is considerably better than it really has any right to be. The story is asinine and the style is a ripoff of what I consider to be the least interesting original programming in HBO's history, but AguirreSacasa seems to achieve everything he is working towards both in terms of plotting and execution. I'd love to see more variety of Tonci Zonjic, but as it stands the art is pretty solid. This issue really isn't my thing and so it's unlikely that I'll pick up #2, but if you are the target audience, you are probably going to love it. Read Full Review
