    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Mar 26, 2009

    Finding a superhero comic book for a young reader can be difficult, especially if one is trying to shield their child from extreme violence or situations that could lead to a lot of questions the parent really doesn't want to deal with. That isn't the problem with the Incredibles; the story is clean and fun, doesn't require an in-depth knowledge the characters and their background, and doesn't feature someone dying and coming back to life by issues end. I've seen some really bad attempts at delivering up an all ages comic, but fortunately, The Incredibles does it right. Well liked characters, good art, and a story that doesn't pander to the young'uns earns The Incredibles: Family Matters #1 4.5 ouf of 5 Stars. How could the issue achieve a perfect 5 Stars? Feature a cameo appearance by John Ratzenberger. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Mar 26, 2009

    If it sounds like I'm constantly comparing this book to the movie, that's probably accurate. A lot of my affection for the characters comes from my enjoyment of the original film, and I'm not sure that a newcomer would enjoy this issue as much without having got to know the Incredibles from their movie incarnation first. However, the fact that Waid and Takara have managed to create a comic book continuation that bears favorable comparison to the movie is an impressive achievement. The result is a fun, unpretentious and unashamedly straightforward superhero book that can be recommended to readers both young and old. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 12, 2009

    All in all, though, it's a nice first issue. It has a good mixture of adventure and humor, and the running gag of people asking Larry if it's ok to hold a baby while being on fire made me chuckle. With "The Incredibles" now being an ongoing series, I'm looking forward to seeing just what Waid and Landry are going to do next. Read Full Review
