    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Feb 6, 2011

    One of the reasons for that is the artwork, and more specifically due to the computer coloring/enhancement effects. The line art from Javier Pina conveys the action effectively. I noted that his backgrounds throughout this issue are rather lacking, but the bulk of the story takes place in a hospital, so the lack of adornment in the background actually works when it comes to capturing the antiseptic, utilitarian environment. I also remain pleased with the simple design of the title character, though over the course of the series, I find I'm less taken with it when it shares space with the other similar designs of the various alien antagonists that appear in the story from time to time.

    What helps distinguish this from the opening arc is that Abnett and Lanning aren't afraid to embrace some good old-fashioned science fiction craziness. I have four words for you – wolves. In. Alien. Suits. I know what you're thinking, but thankfully it's not played up like a cheesy B-movie. What it does do though is add that extra spark of fun that proves the duo aren't taking themselves too serious here. If the book continues to hit the same notes in the future, I imagine it will reach the same level of quality as the other two Stan Lee comics in no time. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Scott Hunter Feb 18, 2011

    The two covers range from interesting but irrelevant, to generic and boring. Cover A features Soldier Zero standing over the body of a dead police officer. It is well drawn, but this cover is about the events of the previous issue, and so as a cover to this book it is rather nonsensical. Cover B is just Soldier Zero wielding some sort of energy ball "" inexcusably lazy and boring.BOTTOM LINE: Not Worth It Read Full Review
