    Weirdworld#1 is another big step for Marvel. It shows they are embracing visions beyond the traditional tights and fights. This might be the best comic you read all week, and considering how much good stuff is out there right now, that is saying something. Even if you have no other Marvel books on your pull list, you should pick upWeirdworld#1. Keep Marvel weird. Read Full Review

    WEIRDWORLD is different from what most people consider a Marvel book. This first issue gives the reader a good idea of what this book is about and where it is going. There were some high expectations going into this series and it meets all said expectations. It's not the same as the Jason Aaron run, but that's a good thing, since Sam Humphires is really putting his stamp on this book. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 14, 2015

    The first issue sets up the series as a fish-out-of-water buddy cop story as Becca meets Goleta the Wizardslayer. And while that might seem formulaic, it's a lot of fun. I seriously can't wait for the second issue, and out of all of the new Marvel series, this one stands out as the best debut of them all. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Dec 15, 2015

    Anyone who admired the last "Weirdworld" series will relish this one. Conversely, anyone who missed it will find themselves at no disadvantage if they decide to jump on board here. Humphries and Del Mundo know exactly what they need to do to keep readers engaged, and they do an amazing job of it in this introductory issue. Read Full Review

    Weirdworld #1 would likely have been a rousing success no matter what thanks to Del Mundo's efforts, but Sam Humphries grasps what makes this concept and artist jive, then plays to those strengths. He crafts characters and drama in broad strokes. Every named entity on Weirdworld feels bigger-than-life, including a truly ridiculous barbarian and a version of Morgan Le Fay that feels as seductive and dangerous as any to come before. Even though the dramatic key to Becca lands like a sledgehammer, it fits into the tone of Weirdworld #1 perfectly. If you're looking for grand adventure and beautiful madness, then look no further; this is the comic for you. Read Full Review

    Becca Rodriguez is an ordinary kid who finds herself in an extraordinary place. After encountering the likes of Ogeode (a wizard, or maybe the monster hiding in your closet) and Goleta (a jacked wizard-slayer with a sweet ride), Becca figures out she's on Weirdworld, a planet away from home. This is a fun, well-written first issue with fantastic art throughout. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 16, 2015

    Wierdworld #1 is a page turner for a first issue. It was sad to see the reason why Becca even got on that plane in the first place. Unfortunate the way in which she had to come to terms with her current situation. However it will be exciting to continue this adventure through Wierdworld and all the things new that we won't see coming till it does. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 15, 2015

    Without Mike Del Mundo on this book, I might say that Weirdworld would be dead in the water, considering the sketchily plotted storyline doesn't stand out amongst the rest of Marvel's prolific output. But man, is this artwork something special, and it gives Humphries the time he needs to throw out as many crazy ideas to see what will stick. We might not have a strong sense of who Becca Rodriguez is or what Weirdworld is all about, but artwork this good may convince you to take the scenic route. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kevin McConnell Dec 18, 2015

    The success of "Weirdwold" is predicated on the fact that is is different. I have commented on a few Marvel books now, that have taken risks and this is no different. My hope here is, with this new volume, new readers will look into the previous one as a stepping stone. As well, Marvel has been going into the "fantasy" realm that is outside of the caped hero box. With so many ideas and characters over the years, it was time to go in this direction. For me, it worked out perfectly. Let's see what other weird things are in store for Becca going forward.

    This was a pleasant first chapter, but we need some crazy new ideas quick so this doesn't simply turn into a rehash. Read Full Review
