The hyper-powered world of Crackdown (Xbox) has made its way to the comic page! In the not-so-distant future, civilized society is more plugged-in and interconnected than ever - but criminal organizations are growing more connected as well, forming unholy alliances, and plotting for an unprecedented campaign against the world. When a series of devastating blackout attacks plunge major metropolitan areas into darkness and chaos, the global population is terrified, traditional law enforcement is overwhelmed - and it's up to The Agency, an elite international crime-fighting task force, to restore peace and deliver justice, by any means necessary more

    Not bad, but there isn't really anything here as yet to keep me interested beyond the second issue. Read Full Review

    The world of Crackdown explodes onto the pages of this first issue. These aren't your normal soldiers and The Agency plays by their own rules. Dynamite found themselves a winner with this one so long as this creative teams improves on some of the areas where they need to dial back on the text. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Trey Campbell Feb 22, 2019

    This book has the potential to be great but ends up reading like a typical licensed comic with a bit too much 90s edge. Read Full Review

    Crackdown shows promise with the action scenes it touts in the first issue though, so hopefully future issues will focus more on that and fleshing out characters. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Feb 27, 2019

    In all, theres a real attempt to craft something out of a create-a-character open world game, and thats commendable. However, the result feels incredibly generic and seems to be struggling in finding an identity of its own. Its not a bad comic, and there are much worse comics out there by talent not even trying. However, this is one of those books that only dedicated Crackdown fans should be grabbing. Read Full Review

    The art in this book however is quite good. Character designs or dynamic and unique. The colors pop and really convey the technologically advanced wold they were trying to depict, I just wish the story was better to match the art. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Feb 21, 2019

    "Crackdown" #1's artwork is dynamic but missing key elements to coexist with the story, which itself is rather lackluster, both elements held above others primarily by the colors. Read Full Review

    If mindless action is your thing then youre going to have a blast with this, but if you look for something with an actual plot and a genuine enthusiasm for what the creative team are doing then Id maybe skip this one. Read Full Review
