    Word Of The Nerd - Oscar Maltby Jan 2, 2015

    Running 25 full-color pages for only $0.99 (0.69 in the UK), Stray #1 is ridiculously great value. It provides a strong spring-board for what promises to be a fulfilling series and, although it suffers a little from its unoriginality, there's enough room here for Delsante to put a new spin on a worn tale as the series progresses.

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Feb 17, 2015

    The true test of any first issue is if you'd be willing to come back for more. I would, and I think you will to. Stray #1 has a ton of intriguing elements, a slick and likeable main character, and a mystery that I'm sure will be revealed slowly and painfully. So while Stray unashamedly reads like Nightwing at times, it uses an amalgam of the character to develop its own mystery, and one that is, if not original, at least intriguing. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - JaDarrell Belser Mar 3, 2015

    I enjoyed the story for what it was. The situation between Doberman and Rottweiler reminded me a lot of Big Daddy and Hit-Girl in Kickass. Definitely enjoyed the artwork from Khary Randolph (Tech Jacket, Justice League Beyond 2.0), Sean Izaakse, and all the others. Hey! I was initially skeptical because of the dog motif, but the storyline has potential. Read Full Review

    As a concept, Stray has enormous potential and I wanted to love it, but it this issue feels too familiar and doesn't bring enough of it's own spin to this familiar tale. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Feb 18, 2015

    Stray does some things well. When showing its Justice League analogue, there's a female Asian superhero and a black superhero, which, it's always nice to see some diversity. The story itself is good, and is an interesting one to follow, if the book can move past its influences and become its own thing. I'll pick up the next one to see what's what, but I can't say I'd recommend the first one to anyone looking for a new title. Read Full Review
