    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 4, 2008

    All in all, it's a great return and there's elements of what came before and enough new stuff to make this "first" issue great for new and returning readers. Add the Blue Beetle to the mix and this kicks of a great return for Manhunter and a definite must read for anyone interested in good comics. Read Full Review

    If you're wondering what all the hoopla about this series has been about, check out this issue. You should be able to figure out why it's so highly regarded in the space of a few pages. Go buy this comic, so us Manhunter fans wont have to scream to the high heavens when they try to cancel it again. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Jun 12, 2008

    Gaydos, a welcome new addition to the Manhunter team, has dealt with struggling anti-heroes before, both with Daredevil and with Jessica Jones. But while Jones, in her post-Jewel private eye phase was equally determined to succeed despite frequent setbacks and missteps, Kates approach is not so fraught with insecurity. If anything, her greatest dangers come from her recklessness -- she takes on the big boys, whether shes ready or not. Shes a trained lawyer, after all. Who knows, she might just get lucky. Im sticking around in hopes it never runs out. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Jun 7, 2008

    DC really needs a strong female role model like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Kate fulfills that need. Let's hope they don't kill her in the latest Big Stupid Event. Too cynical? Tough. DC used to have multiple flinty female role models. Now, all they've got is Supergirl and Manhunter. Not that male characters are portrayed that much better, except unsurprisingly in these pages.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 13, 2008

    I have to say, this book has been a favorite, and Mark Andreyko is on his form, delivering action, drama, a compelling hero (I've decided that I'm not thrilled with the term heroine) and a mystery. He once again reminds me what I loved about this book (the interplay with Obsidian, Kate's resourcefulness, the awkward moments with grandpa) and the art, by Michael Gaydos is really appropriate for the title. Kate Spencer is fascinating, Manhunter is interesting, and you really should be reading this title. The return issue is a solid 4 out of 5 star affair, and I highly recommend this book. There aren't a lot of title out there with a strong female protagonist, so it's a rare treat to see one done this well... Read Full Review
