    Ellis is on a roll lately, and Nextwave should satisfy fans looking for an offbeat superhero book. Read Full Review

    This is the Warren Ellis comic Ive been waiting for; it showcases all his many strengths as a writer, with none of the grumpiness or slightly unconvincing obeisance of some of his other titles. Perhaps Planetary or Transmetropolitan are better comics, but this is a great deal more enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Lets not kid ourselves about subtlety here: General Anger leads the Highest Anti Terrorism Effort, the Captains actual name is unprintable, and the corporate goons (who are testing Marvel Universe-style WMDs) are actually poking Foom with a big stick and thus must be stopped. But the clever lines are clever, even Machine Man has a personality, and the pared-down team seems to have a varied power set for taking on their foes. Theres a lot in place here that could guarantee some fun, in yet another entry on Elliss drive to update stupid heroes for real world (or at least currently cinematic) threats. Its all about the synergy. Read Full Review

    I have trouble seeing how this comic can sustain itself in the long haul - these characters don't quite seem to have the kind of spark that can take them from silly diversion to interesting people - but as a debut, this is loads of wacky fun. Read Full Review

    In The End: I get that this is supposed to be a tongue in cheek book and a nod to Marvel continuity, but Elliss dialogue is really bad at times and even though the artwork by artist Stuart Immonen, whos done extensive work for Marvel in the past in titles like Ultimate X-Men is competent, this book is just too wooden for me to recommend. Silly comics can be deliciously good, but in this case, silly is badly crafted and it shows. Read Full Review
