    Just one issue in and I'm excited for what's to come. The cover makes this seem like it's an action fest ripped straight from the '90s, but the surprisingly sharp humor and excellent characterization makes this an issue worth buying. Team 7, I'm on-board for now. Read Full Review

    While a decent follow-up issue to the zero issue, I was expecting a little more. We've got a good set-up here and we've got the conflicts amongst the team members established. I'm just looking for something that's really going to grab me with this title. Here's to hoping Jordan's got something hidden up his sleeve. Read Full Review

    The reintroduction of the characters seems tiresome and unnecessary given we went through all that last issue, and some more dynamic art is sorely needed. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 10, 2012

    Jesus Merino's art is all over the place in this issue. Some panels are finely detailed and look great. Others look rushed and lacking a polish. Overall, it gives the book a lackluster feel. The biggest art problem, however, is the overall design and look of the book. The characters look silly; the furthest thing from cool. Everything is battle armor and pouches. Seriously, if you didn't know better, you could easily mistake this book for a lousy title from the 90s. It has the all bad hallmarks, but none of the over-the-top fun. None of the heart. In short, the only thing that Team 7 has revealed about the history of the New 52 is that it's a time that is better off forgotten. Read Full Review

    This book was not awful. It's just kind of pop corn, no-brainer, macho military action, done just the way it's always done. I prefer stuff a bit more unique. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 15, 2012

    Just as I thought I could write this one off, the story really begins on the seventeenth page of this issue. With only three pages to go, I found myself roused from a "Team 7" induced slumber to actually find some enthusiasm for what's coming up next. I just hope that "next" doesn't include droning monologue that spills exposition all over what should, by all rights, be a fun, action-packed adventure. Since I'm putting my hopes out there for this book, some stronger art, more in line with Mahnke's cover, would be pretty darn good too. Read Full Review

    This is pretty much a master class in how to not introduce a team. Writer Justin Jordan introduces this gun-heavy, ultra-extreme team in medias res, but this team spends more time talking than actually doing awesome stuff. Read Full Review

    It's still hard to tell if this is going to be a good series or not. The book has solid dialogue and a few funny moments, and character interaction is definitely the strong suit. The weakness of Team 7 is that we really don't know where the hell this book is going.

    First of all, character introductions should have happened last issue (#0), not in this issue.

    After reading this issue, I can say that A) I'm not done with this series yet, and B) it definitely has the potential to be awesome.

    I wouldn't give up on this one yet ppl. Luthor Strode was too amazing for me to think that this isn't going somewhere.
