    Noir is a welcome addition to Dynamite's roster of classic hero books. An engaging story with some stand out visuals are going to make the mysteries of the night fun to follow. Read Full Review

    All this and the revelation of Miss Fury herself at the end of the book just make me giddy for the next issue to come out (Yes it is already on my pull). Don't miss out on this book if you like classic characters, lavish backgrounds and fantastic stories set in the early part of the century. Let's face it; we all love those types of books!

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Nov 14, 2013

    Andrea Mutti's art is perfect for this story. The issue is heavy on shadows and darkness, with thick black lines splashed across the page. The characters look great and the world has just the right amount of lived in murk to it. This is, no doubt, one of the better looking Dynamite books. There are a few moments where the characters look a little stiff and posed, but said moments are few and far between. Overall, Noir #1 looks and reads great. Read Full Review

    The reunion between The Shadow and the Black Sparrow was enough for me to pick up this issue. Although I'm less interested in a Sparrow/Fury team-up there's enough here that I'd consider sticking with the series to see where it goes from here. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Noir #1 is a fine entry into what should be an entertaining crossover. There are missteps but nothing that prevents it from earning a solid recommendation. Read Full Review

    Youll probably like this series if you like boobs and skin tight outfits. You probably wont feel very fulfilled after reading this issue. The storyline feels more like a 2nd or 3rd draft rather than a final product. I might read the next issue out of curiosity and to actually see Miss Fury and Black Sparrow properly interact, but I wouldnt hold my breathe for the next issues release. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - David McIntyre Nov 12, 2013

    There's little to draw me in to the next issue – even the last page reveal of one of the first female superheroes – Miss Fury – means little to me, especially since the series is billed as a team-up between Shadow, Sparrow and Fury. I hope the series picks up steam in the second issue as there is a lot of promise and potential here for a dashing noir adventure but unfortunately I'll have to give the book a 4/10. Mutti's art is the highlight of the book but the rest fails to deliver. Read Full Review
