    With this issue this series has taken the sting out of the cancellation of "Black Panther", as in essence we've traded up, as this book has brought in three characters who I find just as compelling as T'Challa ever was under Christopher Priest's guidance. This book is a bit like the Ultimates, except it's set in the Marvel Universe, and hopefully it'll show up on a monthly basis. Now I don't make the comparison to the Ulimates lightly, as I feel that series features one of the most fascinatingly flawed collection of characters ever assembled, but Christopher Priest is making a very real challenge for that title in these pages, as the three leads we've been treated to thus far could all easily carry their own series, so this book looks more & more promising by the issue. The plot itself is also nice & intense, as this book looks to be consistently offering up some of the best cliffhangers I've come across in a very long time. Read Full Review

    Another mediocre issue in whats turning out to be a mediocre series. After hearing that The Crew was going to be greatly effected by the events of Truth I was anxious to see what Priest would do with a black Captain America. Sadly, that hasnt happened yet and Im not sure it ever will. The fact that theres no established character to latch onto along with the lack of affable characters does not bode well for the longevity of this book. Unless youre a big fan of Priest Id avoid The Crew. Read Full Review
