    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Feb 8, 2017

    I was going to say it's a shame that books as good as this, aren't with a big publisher. Firstly, looking at the price point, $3.99 is lot to pay for a comic book and there are number of Big Two books at that price that don't have as much fun or quality in them. Secondly, independent books publish the types of books that the Big Two can't or won't publish. With this book, Aspen and the comic publisher she has inspired is definitelymaking a splash on the comic book racks. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Jeremias De Leon Feb 14, 2017

    Blake Northcott does a lot of interesting things especially with the narrative. Using a flashback and parodied social media sites to show not only the events of the issue through Aspen's perspective but the public's as well. This issue is extremely entertaining to read and any comic that starts with what's essentially a shoryuken into the sky is a must read for action lovers. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Feb 13, 2017

    So not exactly a reboot, but a solid return for Aspen's top character. I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes from here! Read Full Review

    PopCultHQ - Jason Bennett Feb 5, 2017

    PopCultHQs overall assessment:Too often nowadays in the comic book world, series are short-lived and simply rebooted. Don't get me wrong, if reboots are your thing, that's cool. I know of a couple of big publishers who'll have you covered in spades. But unlike bizarre mash-up characters (think Spider-Gwenpool) and struggling well-known properties, ALL NEW FATHOM #1 (Vol.6) is breathing new life into the franchise.The addition of Northcott, Renna, and Zen were bold moves that paid off handsomely. All three brought their “A” game and look to cement their way as to the new look and feel of the FATHOM series. Quite frankly, this entire creative team have some great synergy and it's a thing to behold when it jumps off the pages. While writer Blake Northcott's narrative and talent alone will have me back, bringing Renna on board simply added to my desire for more.Aspen Matthews has never looked better. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Kevin Hamilton Feb 8, 2017

    So at the end of the day, this is a great issue. Whether you are a die-hard fan of the series as it has unfolded for the past 20 years, or a new reader like me. This is an amazing read full of character, humor, great art, and so much promise. Definitely recommend it to superhero lovers, has some good parts about how the public views enhanced humans. So to break this down in as simple as i can. Give it a try, you might be surprised. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 8, 2017

    All that said, I'm going to give this book a fair score. It's earned it because it reinvents the series, but personally, I don't know if there's enough there to keep the interest. If you're a longtime fan of the series, then perhaps your excited, but the realization I had was that I no longer get excited for Fathom. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Feb 8, 2017

    Well that book ended exactly how I thought it would start and end. I never read or knew about this book, so admittedly I probably don't fully have an appreciation for the relationships in the book. For me it was really straight forward, which doesn't make that a bad thing but doesn't really feel like it would attract new readers into the story, The most interesting thing was seeing Milo, Cenk Uygur, Jonathan Pie, Ana Kasparian and a whole lot of political commentators. However, for people that have no idea who any of these guys are, even I didn't know all of them, it does look like random people commenting on something so randomly. Maybe it will end up attracting new readers and old readers may enjoy, but for me it's not a book I would be looking forward to reading. Read Full Review
