    Comic Watch - Anthony Bergamini Dec 13, 2022

    Danger Street #1 is an ambitious opening chapter, serving as an excellent start to a 12-issue DC Black Label maxiseries by the creators of last year's Rorschach. King and Forns seek to put the limelight on the obscure, while also discussing topics that are poignant to todays conversation. Forns art highlights the mundane nature of the otherwise sprawling epic about to unfold. Social commentary and realism ground this otherwise fantastical book and serve to promise a story of nuance rather than spectacle. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 13, 2022

    If you're looking for something that feels nostalgic and that will command your attention, give Danger Street #1 a shot. The creative team is up to something that feels wholly original yet emblematic of a different time in comics. It's also a social commentary with ideas about superheroes in a world that feels quite real and lived in. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 14, 2022

    Danger Street #1 is an interesting start. It's characters are second tier making it hard to really connect with them and none really stand out as any I care about. It's all about the story of revenge it'd seem. But, it's a start that has me wanting to see more of what's coming. Is it exciting? No. But, it does deliver the opening chapter of what feels like a tale of revenge with a crime and fantasy spin about it all. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Dec 13, 2022

    Danger Street #1 kicks off an odd, slightly surreal drama about a collection of characters who intersect through opportunity and tragedy. The artwork is acceptable, and the plot (such as it is) is unpredictable, but the overall reading experience is mired in drab characters burdened by angst and misery. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Dec 13, 2022

    When I finished reading Danger Street #1, I wondered what the point of this mini-series (and this issue) is. Is it just a way for DC to hold on to the copyright of these obscure characters? Is it an attempt to portray Z-grade characters in an edgy dark story and strike gold with a Watchmen-type story again? I really dont understand why this mini-series even exists. I wish they would have just done a Creeper mini-series and tossed out all the other characters, but so be it. Read Full Review

    What do THIRTEEN different characters, teams and titles have in common? Not a whole lot, and this issue has a lot of heavy lifting to do to make it work, but the art does wonders. Read Full Review
