    Icon Vs. Hardware is a good first step to something great.

    Icon vs. Hardware #1 might not reinvent the wheel of spirited superhero team-ups or the domino effects of time travel, but honestly, it doesn't need to.

Between that narrative approach and its dramatic showcase of art, Icon vs. Hardware #1 is a compelling, albeit understated, start for Milestone's next great epic. Read Full Review
