    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jun 8, 2018

    ABERRANT #1 offers an intense, near-cinematic reading experience that incites excitement and inspires interest for issues to come. We're being promised a 'brutal one-man war,' and if the creative team manages to deliver on said promise, ABERRANT will go down in the books as a great series; the potential is here.

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jun 12, 2018

    'Aberrant' lives up to its promise of a "one-man war" and offers a deeper conspiracy. It's off to an explosive start that's intense while introducing a new spin on superhumans. If you like revenge tales, military thrillers, and superheroes, 'Aberrant' has it all. Give this series a chance.  Read Full Review

    Packed with action, character development and visceral artwork, Aberrant is most definitely one to watch. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 10, 2018

    Aberrant #1 is a flawed but functional opening issue to what, again, could be a solid superhero deconstruction story. There is a lot to improve upon in coming issues, but this is a decent foundation from which to build. I can tentatively recommend this one. Feel free to give it a try. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - David Doub Jul 18, 2018

    It's easy to follow and it tells a story, but I got the same bored feeling watching some random generic action film on Netflix. There's just no spark to the story. Seeing the mention of a Direction and a Entertainment Company it does make me wonder if Aberrant is a move or TV pitch that would find itself right a home at a place like the Sci-Fi Network.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jun 14, 2018

    I am ragging pretty hard on this issue, but it is more because I feel the story is actually a pretty good concept that just was not executed well in comic book format. The pacing of the story is off and the art just does not have that quality that this series needs. There are a lot of good things in Aberrant #1, like the fantastic clothing detail and an interesting story concept. It is just that the bad far outweighs the good in this instance. Read Full Review

    Damn, this thing is good! It feels just like BLACK HAWK DOWN with superheroes. Great dark, gritty art. Smartly arranged. The use of popular music is really affecting. I can't wait for issues 2!

    ABERRANT #1 is a game-changer at Action Lab: Danger Zone. You'll become captivated almost immediately, truly feeling you are being entertained from a comic book though having a theater-like experience. The creative team on this issue put together one of the most seamless, cohesive, and dynamic collaborations I've seen this year on the indie scene. ABERRANT #1 is not only a must-have, get to your LCS and add it to your pull list NOW. Come series end, ABERRANT will be worth rereading for years to come.
