    Comic Book Bin - Nathan Madison Nov 8, 2008

    Terra #1 presents a new take on an established character who, given the creative team working on her series, will both honor the history that comes with the name and, hopefully, make the name all her own. A mini-series I intend on following. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Nov 8, 2008

    I realize that the economy is stagnant, and comic books are really a luxury, but Terra is deserving of your consideration. The book is well written and gorgeously illustrated. The star is a bona fide super-hero rather than an incompetent time traveler, an anti-hero, douchebag or an outright villain. This type of book deserves your support. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 7, 2008

    "Terra" #1 is a strong start to this mini-series. Was it worth the wait? I certainly think so. If the remaining issues are as good, I hope a follow-up monthly series doesn't take as long to show up. It's hard to bring a brand-new character into their own book these days, but Gray, Palmiotti, and Conner make it look positively easy. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Nov 8, 2008

    Beyond the art, and the solid set up by Gray and Palmiotti, there isn't a lot to this issue, which is a shame. It's all set up, with a nice cliffhanger. I don't want to say it is a paint by numbers plot, but it does seem to follow a fairly generic formula. As much praise as I want to give the issue, I ultimately ended up giving Terra #1 3 Stars out of 5. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Nov 5, 2008

    Ah, but I'm digressing into conjecture and irrelevant complaints. What I mean to point out is that Conner's artwork is the only redeeming quality of this whole issue. As always, Conner's cartooning is stuffed with personality, spirit and contagious energy. Still, even she can't overcome the uninspired mediocrity of this material. Watching Conner try and spin gold out of this crummy yarn was a little sad, in the same way I imagine watching Ethan Van Sciver or Ivan Reis draw some inconsequential and bland Jericho miniseries would be a little sad. The sooner this miniseries is over, and Conner has moved on to better material, the better for all of us. Read Full Review
