    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 1, 2009

    Again, this is only the first issue, but if The Remnant stays on par with some of the other brilliant thrillers Boom! Studios has been putting out, you can expect this series to have a very satisfying ending without whatever controversy surrounding Stephen Baldwin is forced into the issue. The Remnant #1 earns 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    I don't know if there are more Remnant stories to come after the arc in this trade paperback, but I sure hope there are because, as good as it is, this book feels like just an introduction to an even bigger story to come. Read Full Review

    So, like I said, this is a fair comic -- nothing too spectacular about it, but its not trash. I dont think I could be any more to the point than that. The dialogue isnt going to stick in your mind, but at least the story has a flow to it that isnt stunted or broken up by unimportant, pointless nonsense. I didnt care too much for the art though. It wasnt bad, and certainly better then some other pencil and color work Ive seen, but ultimately just okay. The coloring was so-so. It seemed like there was a dominant color for many scenes, like pages of purple hue giving everything a twilight look. It didnt excite me -- it just looked purple. Not a bad attempt by Stephen Baldwin, and of course Andrew Crosby, one of the reasons I fell in love with BOOM! Studios so long ago (Mr. Stuffins resides in a small closet of love in my heart). Theres a lot of wiggle room for The Remnant. It really could go anywhere from here, and I have to say Im interested to see where it takes us. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Dec 16, 2008

    All in all, not a bad start, but a generic one. Where this story goes is anyone's guess, but the opening issue doesn't promise much beyond some solid entertainment. Read Full Review
