    Overall, this one-shot is a great introduction to this Jack Kraken and H.I.M. It has all the best components of a good book: action, humour, a hint of underlying darkness; all with a twist to keep this fresh and unlike most other superhero ongoings out there. As a reader, I am definitely left satisfied and wanting more Jack Kraken adventures " and from a $3.99 comic, one can't ask for much more. Read Full Review

    I would've liked a more proper introduction to who Jack Kraken is as we're thrown right in the first story. That said, it also made me want to read through the book again which is always a positive thing. If you're a fan of Tim Seeley's past work and are looking for something out of the ordinary, there's a good chance you'll like Jack Kraken. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Kyle Overkill May 13, 2014

    As an introduction to the character of Jack Kraken this issue does an outstanding job. Seeley and team establish a fleshed out character who looks great and a mystery to it worth learning about. The idea of H.I.M and other characters is an even bigger draw. If these are not ideas you are interested in this might be a flat issue for you. What makes this issue good is the promise of more and what is to come. Seeley works in a lot of hints at the bigger picture and world in which Jack inhabits. I look forward to more Jack, better get Kraken on it Seeley. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski May 16, 2014

    There's enough going on in "Jack Kraken" to make it worth your while, while also having the added benefit of being something of a victory lap for a creator in Tim Seeley, who has been recently having some big time success at a variety of publishers. The stories are rough around the edges, but each of them is visually and conceptually rewarding on some level if you give them a chance. Although it would certainly be fun to see, it's difficult to envision "Kraken" garnering the wild fandom or praise of something like Seeley's "Hack/Slash", but as a one-off it's a surprisingly affecting comic that comes from a place of true love for the genre " even from an incredibly young age.

    Jack Kraken is a functional comic book. Unfortunately, there's not much to say for it past that. Read Full Review
