At this point, it feels like there’s nobody on Earth who isn’t hunting for Icon and Rocket-and as powerful as they may be, there’s always a way to get to someone’s friends or family. Does Icon even have the strength to put the forces they’ve unleashed back in the bottle? And more crucially, does he want to?

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Nov 4, 2021

    Icon & Rocket #4 give Icon an interesting villain, and because they're both not from this planet but their origins are different, I wonder if in the future they might need to team up when the powers that be make the decision to go after both of them. I'll be there for that. That's exciting stuff. Read Full Review

    Braithwaite delivers some big and beautifully detailed action throughout the story. The art creates some great atmosphere and the visuals were thrilling throughout. Read Full Review

    This issue doesn't have the hot topics of the previous three, which saw Icon and Rocket literally reshape the world at points, but it doesn't need to. The personal edge keeps us invested in this run no matter what they're doing. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - C.V.R. The Bard Nov 5, 2021

    "Knuck If You Buck" is just another day in Dakotaverse, where extraterrestrials who look like they came straight of a J.Lo 2000-era anime is as common as female protagonists constantly stealing the limelight from arguably one of DC's most powerful male characters. Perhaps, stealing is the wrong word since Braithwhite and Co. have the heroes in Rocket & Xiomara look so good while doing just that. But fans of Icon wont be disappointed, you get to see him plenty, even if he gets knocked down a few times, he gets as up as this book is sure to put spirits in as soon as the first panel meets iris, guaranteed.

    All around, Activist Icon is a thrill ride well worth taking. It's not what happened before, but it's sure as heck something interesting happening for the future. Read Full Review

    A character-driven story can go a long way, so let's see how Icon and Rocket can carry this before we get a solid-enough plot. Read Full Review

    Another great issue. Art is great. Characters remain on point and the world they are in is portayed very well. There are inner city representations that are accurate without being pedantic, condescending. This series continues to be one of DCs strongest titles but I hope the tease at the end indicates it continues to move its story along.

    This wasn't as good as some of the previous issues, it felt a bit like they were stretching things out to hit the issue quota. And also, the police definitely never blame innocent people for things out of their control. Of course.

    I've really liked this up until now, never rated it under 7 but this one was a miss for me. While it isn't necessarily bad, the whole "your neighborhood got wrecked so you're to blame" just to create an unnecessary conflict between the police and the people is really stupid. You're going to have to try harder than this if you really want me to buy that. Also, we didn't need a whole page about which black athlete is the best but if we're on that I'd say Reginald forgot some certain great ones like Usain Bolt or Kobe Bryant, God rest his soul.
