    The artwork by Rubine defiantly has an authentic, grittiness of what you would expect of a downtown Los Angeles. While the action scenes are dark, violent (for the must part), and filled with action. It continues mostly with the dark theme in the scenes when he is in a mask as his wrestler persona. While he is not in the mask, the colors are brighter, and more vibrant. That simple contrast makes it easy to distinguish the man, from the mask. Read Full Review

    Heroes: Vengeance #1 is put together with a bit more production quality than I had been expecting. It's good to see that the budget was applied well and that the right talent was secured to be the caretaker of this particular story. If the creative team can tighten a few areas up, they might just have a winner on their hands. Read Full Review

    Comic Plug - Mike O'Rear Oct 6, 2015

    A great introduction to a fascinating character, a lucha vigilante POC. We really get inside his head and tackle what it means to be a hero. A little skimpy on plot, but has great potential. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Oct 7, 2015

    Over here in the UK we haven't had the Heroes Reborn series hit. This book then becomes more than a prelude and more of an advertisement and interest creator for the big show. Unfortunately, if this is the aim of the book then I am not overly impressed nor is my interest piqued. I will be giving the new show a watch and it may be that after viewing the show my views towards the book may change. However, with what is becoming a repetitive theme, only time will tell.

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Oct 8, 2015

    Heroes Vengeance #1 gives an inside look into the life of Oscar and the reasons he decided to put on the mask and become El Vengador. It has a nice action sequence, but the artwork in the wrestling arena was sorely lacking. If you want to learn more about some of the characters on Heroes Reborn it is worth picking up. It is also worth noting this issue felt a lot like a one-shot and didn't have a cliffhanger although it does tease more El Vengador in the second issue. Read Full Review

    The current day action feels inconsequential as El Vengador's mind is stuck in the past, while the flashbacks do nothing to justify or inform his leap from fan to hero. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Cindy Harley Nov 23, 2015

    The artwork is not very gripping. As the scenes change, the panels go from bold and strong to being too light and not very eye catching. The storyline is also not very attention-grabbing. Once the story ends, there was very little interest in reading the follow-up. Unfortunately, Heroes Vengeance #1 comes across as merely average. Read Full Review
