    A few minuses amid the great stuff: As I commented above, I really miss Virgil's gamer/geek/sci-fi cracks. He makes a few jokes here, but that particular focus on the comments before made him actually seem like several of my friends, and I doubt I'm the only comic fan who thought so. I'm not sure what goes on with this weird Sharon A and B plot, but it's come from nowhere, we have no explanation of it, and thus far it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. We have no idea if anyone's even looking into it. Read Full Review

    While still taken with the premise of Static in New York, and the titular star exudes plenty of charisma and charm, it feels like McDaniel and Rozum haven't quite figured out how to balance all the different plotlines for max impact yet. Read Full Review

    As is usually the case with Scott McDaniel, the art is too loose and scratchy to impress, but it generally gets the point across. It should be interesting to see how the art is impacted when McDaniel steps down from the writing side of things. Read Full Review

    Right now, that potential is going to waste. A pity. Read Full Review

    Static was fun until this issue. It felt laborious to get through all the dialogue and the unentertaining Slate Gang, who have long worn out their welcome. The pacing is too slow and the action, as well as most of the dialogue, is hard to understand. Static, Virule, Piranha and Pale Man are the only reasons to check out this comic, and honestly if you want some better one-liners read Justice League International. It's a much more fun series than this has turned out to be. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Matt Demers Nov 2, 2011

    When I read Static, I can't help but feel like I've been re-reading something that I've already experienced before. So many of the tropes in this story are carelessly lifted from other heroes in an attempt to legitimize Virgil, and it doesn't wear too well on him. It's like he's taken Peter Parker's old, lame, moth-hole-filled suit and tried to pass it off as Versace. Read Full Review
