    Sirens of Sequentials - CJ Pendragon Sep 30, 2018

    Overall, Id recommend Rainbow Brite #1 to any child or adult who has nostalgia in their hearts. Its an empowering story for young girls, and girls of color as Willow herself is a black girl, that I feel would be welcomed with open arms and hearts by the targeted demographic. Rainbow Brite is the sort of story we need to bring in new readers, and to invite children to fall in love with the source content like many of their parents did at their age, and thats a bonding experience that stays with you for a lifetime. A fun, humorous and adventurous epic, Rainbow Brite is going to be a wonderful success for Dynamite Comics and the creative team behind it. It goes on sale October 3, so try not to miss it at your LCS! Read Full Review

    This wonderful comic is perfect for all ages and is in a similar vein as Captain Underpants. It is bright, engaging and leaves you wanting to know more about what is going on. I think that this is going to be a big hit with younger readers and reminiscer's like me alike. Rated: 4.5 out of 5! Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Oct 4, 2018

    I do hope the stories get a little deeper than "Oh no, Murky and Lurky are sapping the colors from that field of daisies!" But I expect Whitley has plenty of ideas to explore, and for a first issue I wholeheartedly recommend Dynamite's RAINBOW BRITE to the all-ages readers market. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Rasheda Nov 6, 2018

    The writing from Jeremy Whitley is spot on for of children's comic. I appreciate Whitley's girl-centric focus on this comic because you know Rainbow Brite is a girl in charge of all of the Rainbow Scouts. It looks like he's coming from the viewpoint of she's a tough girl who knows how to take care of herself which makes for a good beginning. Read Full Review

    Rainbow Brite keeps things low key in its opening chapter, and I would have liked a bigger, fuller introduction. What we do get is still very adorable, though. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Johnathan Mason Oct 3, 2018

    By the last page, this comic made for an entertaining prologue to a property that I had little knowledge of. I envy the children who have this book put into their hands " especially once the full story is released and collected. Here's hoping many more enjoy this re-introduction to Rainbow Brite, and the talents shaping her world. Read Full Review

    I'm always excited when I hear that an intellectual property from my childhood is being rebooted or updated for modern times. I'm almost always disappointed or underwhelmed but I do appreciate that the franchises aren't just left to rot in the past.

    Rainbow Brite #1 follows Wisp (Rainbow Brite) and Willow (Her best friend). They are two normal kids. They play, get into trouble and are loyal to each other. After a day of larping. Willow goes home. Later that night Wisp sees something outside and goes to investigate. It turns out the somethings are monsters and they have taken the color from her mother's car. Wisp tries to fight the monsters but can't hurt them with her play sword, so she runs off.
