    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 8, 2014

    I don't know that I'll pick-up all the tie-in issues, but the first issue sells me on the premise of the crossover. And any comic featuring both Mojo Jojo and Aku is certainly going to tempt me into putting it in my pull list. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 25, 2014

    The real surprise is the art generated by Derek Charm -- not only does he bring each respective character to vividly accurate life, but he does so solo, lending a strange sense of continuity to the proceedings. Each scene and set piece is rendered with loving accuracy, something sure to be appreciated by those long enamored with the characters involved. With a hodgepodge of famed characters still to enter the fold, Super Crisis Secret War is go! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Jun 24, 2014

    That being said, there isnt any interplay between the heroes, who get only a few lines of dialogue throughout the entire issue, and have very little to actually do. They mostly just sit around while the villains take control of the plot. Aside from confrontations with numerous robots, the heroes dont seem all that integral to this issue. The battles with the robots, of course, are pretty great to watch unfold. Each of the heroes deals with them in a very different way, and it makes for some very enjoyable entertainment, even though it is all kind of mindless. Read Full Review
