    If you're a regular reader of Tanemura's work, be it Full Moon or Gentleman's Alliance, you don't want to miss this opportunity to read her first published work. If you're still not sure about shojo manga, or whether it might be for you, this is a real gem of a book to find out whether you'll like it or not with a minimal investment. Whatever your story, I*O*N is well worth checking out, but fair warning you might actually find yourself enjoying shojo manga before you're done. Read Full Review

    Overall, Ion would be off to a fairly decent start if it wasn't hampered by disappointing artwork and a somewhat confusing story. Be that as it may, there is some promise in there. I do believe Marz is capable of having the promise shine more often than the confusion when given the opportunity. Right now though, the torch bearer is getting smothered, and it needs something to light the way. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Apr 27, 2006

    At any rate, the pacing of Ion #1 was terribly slow. The dialogue was boring and uninspired. The issue just lumbered along like a bloated turtle. We spent too much of the issue listening to slacker Kyle whine about this and that while he is lounging at his retreat for artists trying to "find themselves." There was no hook to the end of this issue or plotlines that were interesting enough for me to want to purchase the next issue. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Mar 26, 2007

    Save for the death of a rarely-seen supporting character in this issue, nothing seems to have changed since the first issue of the series. Readers will no doubt wonder what the point of the exercise was. I'd have to say the answer is marketing when it should have been storytelling. Read Full Review
