    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez Jan 17, 2018

    Mentok the Mind-Taker … a foe which makes sanity seem abnormal and insanity appears to be relevant. Even with his background, you still have to question how he came to be within his current state, teetering between two paths of reality. And then how he blames Birdman for his failings to summon a darker power, or perhaps the hero took what he thinks is rightfully his? We may never know, but for now, let us relax within the coldness of unfeeling and manipulate your allies to do your bidding. After all, what else is there to do than wait to see how this dive into lunacy will end, but however it does … it should be a fun ride! Read Full Review

    Well-conceived and beautifully drawn, a really impressive chunk of comics for your four bucks. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Jan 19, 2018

    Just based on the intro alone this comic would receive a high score, but add in the soap opera style drama of Birdman running into his former wife and learning that he has a cancer ridden son is too compelling to pass up. I first I thought the premise was a bit heavy handed, but just a few pages later I was invested in the story line enough to get choked up when Birdman tries to heal his son. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Jan 17, 2018

    What has been quite enjoyable from this series, as well as all other Hanna-Barbera series, is that all the stories we are getting could easily fit as cartoons as well as comic books. These stories, though nothing revolutionary, are fun, a little crazy, and are great ways to continue the tradition of these classic characters. It also helps that you can get a legend like Steve Rude to join on art duties and bring everything to life is such a fantastic way - and the title page for this issue has an amazing piece by him.

    Hester does a good job with adding some major stakes for the character, but overall none of the players are quite as compelling as what I'm used to seeing in this book. Read Full Review
