    Sovereigns and Dynamite's new revival of the Gold Key titles are breathing new life into old favorites, but this is not mere nostalgia. These titles are new and they are challenging readers to expand their concepts of these characters. Read Full Review

    The Sovereigns is an interesting book, at least the main part is. Regardless of the quality of the back-up, I do like the idea; it feels a like an old school move, which fits with this classic characters. Of course, others may feel that they would prefer the extra pages to be given to the main story. This is the level of interest that Fawkes and co have managed to instill in their readership.

    Word Of The Nerd - Megan Rae Jun 14, 2017

    Sovereigns #2 is a strong second Issue, and hopefully another chapter in a strong series. These Gold Key characters are flourishing in this new, modern adaptation. With so many different stories and characters in the mix, not to mention the years of history attached to these universes, it would be easy for this series to feel muddled and confusing. The book succeeds, however, because of excellent teamwork on behalf of the creators and an even-paced plot. This issue is just another taste of the deeper mystery that will be unveiled in the series, and I can't wait to see more. Read Full Review

    Sovereigns #2 took some big steps forward. We know the enemy, how strong this enemy is, and why the future we see just may be hard to fight against. This is not a story for those who were looking for a hopeful story and I appreciate that they are pulling no punches with heroes who are more than the average. I just hope that after what has happened we next pick up on what role Samson has to play in this. Read Full Review

    Despite the confusing plot, the story holds together okay, but the art is absolutely fantastic. I love the characters in this book, so I'll be sticking around. I'm sure great things are coming for this series! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 14, 2017

    The Sovereigns continues to be an intriguing series that has me curious with where it's going. I'm enjoying the other works that are slowly starting to come out as well so there's plenty to dig into for this fan of the characters and the ways they can be reinvented. Fawkes is working a slow path to the reveal while providing a lot of foundations for many things in this mini shared universe and Desjardins is delivering some great looking pages for it through and through. This issue also includes a Turok backup story but these things never work well for me as I'm not always reading the books they crossover into and they're never enough pages to feel like they do anything besides spin the wheels a bit, sadly.

    I’m still onboard for Sovereigns, although I’m slightly concerned that they’ll deliver a story that stands up to heavy scrutiny. They’ve built a rich and compelling world, and they are clearly playing with some very heady storytelling elements. However, much like some Christopher Nolan films, I’m worried that I will love the story on first blush, but that the fabric will begin to unravel the more I try to make sense of certain plot threads. If you’re trying to tell a complicated story, the overall success depends on your ability to tie everything together satisfactorily. I genuinely appreciate artists who are ambitious, but craftsmanship and execution are also important. Read Full Review
