    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes May 7, 2014

    The sign of a good series is if it compels you to want the next installment immediately and seek out earlier issues of these characters. Mission accomplished on both fronts. Fun reading. Read Full Review

    With a new reboot of all the characters apart from Ernie, now's the perfect time to jump into the Chaos! universe. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin May 6, 2014

    Chaos #1 is a good start to a crossover and even a resurrection of sorts. Add everything together and your left with a comic that comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dana Keels May 13, 2014

    Above all else, the book has a fun tone, gore, gore and funny gore. Which is only made better by the art from Mirka Andolfo (Fanboys vs. Zombies), perfectly balancing the humor and horror. Read Full Review

    On the whole though I'd actually recommend Chaos if you're a junky for horror action titles or are a fan of these characters. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell May 7, 2014

    If you've been a fan of the characters and the universe, you'll find a lot to love with Seeley's story. If you're unfamiliar with the world, you'll have to spend a little more time making the connections. There is more than enough here to grab your attention and keep you entertained regardless of your level of knowledge. This is a fast teaser of what's to come more than anything. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 7, 2014

    Is this the triumphant return of Chaos? Not really. It's good to have the characters back even if it's just a mini-series. The problem with Chaos has always been that they have great characters, but no villains and no stories for them to go through. You could look at it like a universe full of villains and anti-heroes walking the thinnest of lines between hero and villain, but it's just a strange mix of character that never really had a story to tell. There is a story here, but we'll have to see if it can bust out of the event book mold that it's started off in. Read Full Review

    Overall, if you knew Chaos! back in the day, this will feel like a quick little reunion. I'm just happy to see Evil Ernie killing random folk again. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet May 6, 2014

    Theres a lot here for a first issue, even with there really wasnt any kind of in depth look at the characters. Having only a vague knowledge of Evil Ernie and maybe seeing Purgatori somewhere before really feels like, as a reader, youre missing a lot of whats going on. Hopefully (and because its Seeley, you can pretty much bet on it) well get more on these characters as this mini goes on to really flesh out those parts that new comers might not yet know or understand. Regardless, it was a good first outing and another example of Dynamite really stepping their game up. Its certainly worth checking out. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 7, 2014

    The premise is sound and the players are too, but it's a tough read due to some sketchy art and a confusing progression of story. Read Full Review

    The art is nice but I think the series depends on some familiarity with these characters. I got the gist of what's going on but I don't really get how Chastity fits into this. And with the promise of more Chaos characters on the way, this sounds like it will be very bloated for a six-issue series.
