    Comic Crusaders - Jennifer DeRoss Aug 30, 2017

    This continues to be comic series that needs to exist. It speaks to right now, or any similar other time in our history and these people are doing it right. As expected, this particular issue has what established fans want, but it is a great series to start on if you haven't read any Bombshells before. More than anything, this new issue shows us, once again, that these girls are ready to keep throwing down for liber-er-ty! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Daniel Levine Sep 6, 2017

    Marguerite Bennett picks up where the first Bombshells series left off, but starts an exciting new story for new readers to jump aboard, set in a different theater of World War II. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - E.A. Sofia Sep 17, 2017

    The previous Bombshells series was one of my favorite comics and Im looking forward to reading this one as well. This book is attempting to address incredibly important topics, and that always comes with the nervousness of whether the story can live up to its promises. Superheroes exist to do the right thing and help others, and that should include looking at the bad things done in our own society, not just other societies. I hope this series will live up to the high expectations that come with the topic. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Sep 6, 2017

    I was pleased to find this was a thought provoking read with some real depth, not a halfhearted cash grab based on the popularity of stylized character statues. The theme of the issue was "American Soil", which was explored through raising serious questions about our nation's history, trajectory, and underlying values. Read Full Review

    Bombshells United #1 starts off slow, but carries an impact as it steadily picks up speed! The creative team absolutely thrives in the very environment that they pioneered in the first volume. And the questions they pose, on Wonder Woman especially, echo right to the core of what any of these icons could or should stand for. All the while pushing toward a satisfying cliffhanger!

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 28, 2017

    I've got a lot of faith in Marguerite Bennett after what she's achieved in the last few years across a range of series and can't wait to see where she and the artists that she gets to work with go with it. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Sep 7, 2017

    Despite the slower talky parts in the middle, the book really gets off to a running start, ending with a cliffhanger that has me digging back through Wonder Woman's other adversaries so I am in the know for the next issue. If women-led comics bursting with diverse women characters is your thing, pick this one up. It looks to be a hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Sep 6, 2017

    For a first chapter, Bombshells United #1 does an excellent job of making you want to read and see more. Bennett and Sauvage continue a partnership that clearly works and are also tackling a subject matter not always widely talked about today. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Bryan Brown Sep 6, 2017

    In spite of the confusion I had with the story, it is the overall message it tells that makes Bombshells United #1 so enjoyable. Having an interest in World War II history was a big draw for me to this issue and the Bombshells in general. I will have to make it a point to pick up the first series in trade. I can see where Bennett may be going with the story line and has my interest through the first story arc at least. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Oct 24, 2017

    Its not myintent to politicize a comic book story, but my interpretation of the firstissue is that its a gender-based effort to write a better world. But that shouldntsurprise anyone. It is Bombshells in an alternate reality after all. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 30, 2017

    It's a shame that the art is the best part of this book. I loved looking at the story but didn't particularly care to read it. Maybe it's just a first issue thing, but something tells me that it's just how this series is going to go and that it won't end up being something I enjoy reading. Time will tell, but what's here in this first issue isn't particularly fresh, exciting or interesting. The artwork, on the other hand, is all those things and more.
