    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 30, 2020

    Visaggio, Melnikov, and Guerrero find a strikingly unique appeal to a relatively new character. The issue feels a lot like a pilot episode of a whole new series. Ginny and Lady Bird are great fun to follow in a one-shot that makes a very strong case for further adventures. The two characters work well together, carving out a potentially intrepid trail through the shadows of major landmarks in the DC universe. Read Full Review

    ‘Jinny Hex Special' #1 is a fun ride from start to finish. We get to learn more about this new edition to the DCU while writer Magdalena Vissagioand artistGleb Melnikov also do well in setting up all the key pieces of Jinny's backstory should we ever get a follow on series. A reminder of the innocent, fun titles we've seen coming out of Wonder Comics and a hope this imprint has the strength to hold on in there based on the strength of this one-shot. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Clark Jan 2, 2021

    The artwork in this issue is simply gorgeous. Everything has a real, genuine western feel about it; cowboys, cowgirls, even saloons and flintlocks. Aside from the very obvious space and alien artefacts, it feels like an old timey cowboy story. I loved it. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 29, 2020

    Jinny Hex Special #1 tells a tale that is equal parts adventure, fun, and emotion. While this book is just a one-shot, its characters are strong and engaging enough that I hope we may yet see more of Jinny and company in the future. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl Dec 29, 2020

    The strong, confident voice of Jinny and her friend Lady Bird are the core of this title and the characterization Visaggio creates shines brighter than the warm sun on the horizon. Jinny clearly has more mysteries to uncover and this creative team should be along for the adventure. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Jan 12, 2021

    Jinny Hex Special #1 is a delightful read. Visaggio makes the most out of these characters, building their pasts while also giving them a bright future. The art is beautiful throughout, making this special the complete package. Those who want a fun one-shot should pick this one up. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Jan 4, 2021

    This special issue was a fun romp featuring a great new edition to the DC Universe. Who knows if she will become a regular anywhere any time soon, but it was great to spend time with, what I consider, one of the real bright spots of Young Justice. The world needs more mad ass female lead books. I am hopeful, this is just the beginning of her story and not the end. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jan 4, 2021

    Still, Visaggio writes an enjoyable script that is entertaining throughout. The art is decent on this as well. I enjoyed this book and wouldn't mind further adventures for this character at all. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 29, 2020

    Melnikov's art is strong as usual, as he can shift environments pretty seamlessly, but the real star is Visaggio's compelling writing of Jinny and her supporting cast. It's very different from her past DC work, but no less strong. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 30, 2020

    It's a likeable adventure that provides some insight into Jinny's life, but I'm not sure if it's going to be the springboard to more. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Dec 30, 2020

    In spite of some underdeveloped motifs and banal plotting, Jinny Hex Special still serves up plenty of excitement and shows readers a new heroine with plenty of attitude ready to make her mark on DC Comics. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Dec 29, 2020

    Couple bad judgment with a final battle that makes almost no sense, and you wind up with a one-shot that really didn't deserve 40 pages at $4.99. At best, this should have been tightened up, pared-down, and printed as a backup story in a better title. Read Full Review
