    One of the best things about the Lemire's Black Hammer universe is the depth of it. It's not just evocative of a particular genre or era of comics, but reflects the entire history of the medium. And each new project reveals a new facet of the rich tapestry that makes up Lemire's world. Lemire's tributes to comics are always spot on and this tribute to the 60s era Doom Patrol and X-Men is no exception. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 8, 2021

    The opening installment of this series was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed getting the old-style comics presented here to clue us into the dynamic of how these characters existed previously. I love how it captures the time but it also works as a fun shortcut to get us to the present where things are nowhere near the same but those things are all flooding back into their minds and it's impacting things. Lemire's script really does a great job here in presenting both styles and Crook does a fantastic job of taking that and elevating it to a whole other level. Read Full Review

    There is a mystery here that I assume will start to unfold over the next issues, but for right now getting to know the characters is enough to sell me on this book. Along with Crooks art and the World of Black Hammer behind it, The Unbelievable Unteens is another solid entry. Read Full Review

    Already half over, Unbelievable Unteens slows down a bit too quickly here, though the intrigue remains. As always, it doesn't get much better than Tyler Crook but y'all already knew that. His work is great here, as always. Read Full Review
