    A Comic Book Blog - Victor Kutsenok Dec 3, 2010

    Now this is a great book. It has everything a great comic book should have. An awesome character with strange and wonderful powers. A secret that is yet to be revealed about who the character really is. Awesome, powerful villains with no regard for life, whose true purpose is also yet to be revealed. A subplot that raises questions. Great super hero fights. And amazing art to top it all off. Read Full Review

    Thanks to Chad Hardin and colorist Blond, the Traveler cuts a striking figure. His costume is both attractive and functional. Hardin and Blond illustrate the entirety of the comic book with a sense of artistic storytelling, and the bare bones of the art (the scale, the proportion, the design of the panels, the full backgrounds) exhibit professionalism and old school style.

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Nov 20, 2010

    This issue felt really short. Maybe it is because there isn't a lot of time for character development, or maybe it is because Mark Waid can write a tale that speeds along. In either case, there just doesn't seem to be a lot of time to really think about the events going on - and that is okay, as this book isn't supposed to be deep. It's the comic book equivalent of a popcorn movie and is worth checking out. There will needs to be a bit more substance going forward, but for now, The Traveler #1 is worth 3.5 out of 5 Stars.

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Nov 18, 2010

    Beginning with some cheesy wordplay and imagery about time, "The Traveler" #1 picks up the pace, delivering a lot of action and not much else. It's a breezy, entertaining read and provides a lot of hints that Waid and Lee have some big plans, but not enough information about the eponymous hero is given to make us care. That said, the all-action, no slowing down approach is an effective one and has me wanting to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    The Bottom Line: While the book shows promise with great action, snappy dialogue, and amazing art, The Traveler needs to offer a little bit more if it plans to stand out amongst an already over-flooded superhero market. Read Full Review

    Solid, but no wow. I have faith based on Mark Waid's name being attached. Read Full Review
