    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jun 2, 2018

    The comic is written and drawn by Fabian Lelay with colors by Claudia Aguirre - and it's a strong first issue, one that should especially appeal to young adult readers. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton May 30, 2018

    We Are the Danger#1 has all the raw emotion and passion of your favorite summer pop single that happens to feature some distorted guitars to give it a little edge. Fabian Lelay and Claudia Aguirre take two relatable situations: feeling like an outcast at a new place and loving music with every ounce of energy and turns into yet another hit for Black Mask Studios.

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall May 29, 2018

    In interviews, Lelay's entertained notions of how characters from Jade Street Protection Services (with art by Lelay and written by Katy Rex) would stack up as a band. Thus, We Are The Danger might come off as mere wish fulfillment, and one that emulates other series concepts already being done. Except that he does it very well, well enough you don't care about all that. You just get swept up in the breakneck, youthful creative process of passion and possibilities. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea May 29, 2018

    'We Are The Danger' is a fun and light rock and roll story with a charming and diverse cast of characters. This is Black Mask Studios' 'Josie and the Pussycats' in the very best of ways. Lelay brings this budding group of teen rock stars together in a familiar but entertaining rise to stardom story. It's the perfect comic book series for the summer.  Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Nick Hanover May 30, 2018

    Whether We Are The Danger gets around to the messier parts of the band life isnt as clear yet, still, who can blame it for lingering on the joys of first playing together and discovering your own sound? After all, thats a lot more likely to inspire young readers to pick up an instrument themselves than the grimy reality of a months long tour could ever hope to be. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes May 14, 2018

    Even though this book is not my usual style, I appreciate that Black Mask are trying to diversify their range. With that sentiment aside, this book is a solid slice of a lighter tone book that, like a lot of Black Mask's work, goes to prove that there ae more to comic books than superheroes. Read Full Review

    Batman's Bookcase - Zack Quaintance May 14, 2018

    This first issue builds friendships really well while also establishing a confident aesthetic tone. Its a slice-of-life story, to be sure, and a good one at that, taking the time with emotions and relationships those books rely so heavily upon. I really appreciated how stylish this book was without ever becoming preening. Itll be a fun one to follow. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley May 31, 2018

    Lelay goes through the motions, and while the pair at the center get some sweet moments "" including one that emphasises Julie's upbringing "" it's an awfully thin issue in terms of substance. A lot happens, but not a whole lot that's new. Read Full Review
