    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez Feb 14, 2018

    When I first heard there was going to be another reboot of the Xena comic book series, I was dubious it would do justice to such a beloved television series, but once the news one of my favorite writers, Meredith Finch, would be creating the stories, I decided to give it a chance. With her experience of creating dynamic female role models and tales of action without sacrificing strength to vulnerability, it seemed this new incarnation would be something to behold, and with this first issue it is well within my expectations for excellence.

    Overall. This is a fantastic first issue and a great introduction and leaping on point for those that are not familiar with the characters or the television show. Which can only be a good thing for the Xena fanbase, which to this day remains extremely loyal. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Feb 7, 2018

    All new tales, or some new things blending with existing tales sorta like this issue? Basically the bottom line is if you like strong women and warriors you should already know about Xena. If you dont already know about Xena pick up this comic and learn. You will not regret this decision. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Feb 14, 2018

    If fans are drawn in by nostalgia, so be it, but these beloved characters are in good hands. Nothing much has happened yet, but as the two companions journey down the road the promise of bold tales and sad songs are sure to be fulfilled in abundance. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Brian A. Madrid Feb 24, 2018

    The artwork is tremendous to look at when you see Gabrielle and Xena back in action once again. To even have the face of Gabrielle pout during one panel is priceless. One would hope to see more of the dynamic dames be involved in a high pace, action-packed adventure. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Feb 13, 2018

    If the plan with Xena: Warrior Princess #1 is to introduce the character and her world to a new collection of readers, then I think it does its job well. Finch and Cifuentes have delivered an issue that is just plain and simple fun, a nice action-heavy issue with a wink to the adventures to come starring characters we already like. Read Full Review

    We Talk Podcasts - Mo Feb 14, 2018

    I can only suspect that with such a team up of these two ladies who attract drama like magnets, there will be plenty of swords, sandals, hi-jinx, and revelations to come with every future issue. Read Full Review

    "Xena" #1 is a pleasant but inconsequential debut issue with beautiful art. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 20, 2018

    While I'm far from the biggest Xena fan, Xena: Warrior Princess #1 is a solid opening to the new series set early enough in the franchise's run it should work for both new readers and longtime fans alike. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Finch's work on Rose suggests that it will come in time, but as far as the first issue, longtime Xena fans might have a significant sense of deja vu. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Madeleine Sisco Feb 14, 2018

    Xena #1 doesn't expand or add to the Xena mythos and in the end feels like an empty effort. Read Full Review

    Well that wasn't very original or bright ... I yawn a lot.

    Cover - Nice face, but some issue with the pose. That didn't give much off the story. 1/2
    Writing - Just Ok. But I would have wanted more than that. 1/3
    Arts - At least their is something to save even if isn't perfect. 2/3
    Feelings - I didn't take the following fortunately 0/2
