    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 3, 2010

    The creative team behind Freedom Fighters has not let up on the throttle for even a moment since the first page of the first issue. That has been a major reason why this series has been such a great read but, as this week's issue shows, that can work against them. Some of the intricacies of the plot and a lot of Travis Moore's storytelling gets lost in the densely packed issue because the creative team is pushing too hard to put so much in the issue. It's still a great read and highly engaging, but it could easily be so much more! Read Full Review

    Freedom Fighters continues to be an enormously dynamic comic. Theres no doubt its meant to entertain, but I think its capable of reaching a higher level of quality. If Gray and Palmiotti could put some more thought to details that are left on the wayside of their ambitious premises, this series has the potential to elevating this generally overshadowed team into much more prime territory.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 5, 2010

    I've loosely compared this comic to "Atlas," but this comic is a whole different animal. The team is an awkward alliance similar to that depicted on the Atlas squad, but Gray and Palmiotti pump extra conspiracy theory and double-secret societal triple-crosses into this book, making it just as much unlike the rest of the comic scene as "Atlas" was in its own right. "Freedom Fighters" is a book that isn't for everyone, but it is for readers who a looking for a more cerebral adventure that features strong art, interesting characters, and a heaping helping of conspiracy. Gray and Palmiotti are doing a nice job of world-building here, and they're doing so with pieces of the DCU. Read Full Review

    There just doesn't seem to be a lot good going on here. The team isn't working well together, another Golden Age hero goes bad, the story is confusing, and the art is odd. They actually manage to make Phantom Lady unattractive in her first panel, and that takes some doing. I was also really thrown by the fighting bad guys we the readers can't see bit, as well as where this fight came from. I had high hopes for this series, but it's just not meeting them. I'm having trouble believing this is the same team of writers I liked so much on Power Girl's first year. Read Full Review
