    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman May 23, 2018

    Delta 13 is a Sci-fi Horror tale that feels familiar enough for readers to immediately recognize the peril that our protagonists face but also fresh enough to excite and unsettle. Issue #1 is slower than expected but made a solid introduction nonetheless. Read Full Review

    As a sci-fi horror though, being set in space aside, there isnt much of either in this opening but its definitely one to keep an eye on. Read Full Review

    Delta 13 has the potential to be thrilling, terrifying, hair-raising " all those things a good lost-in-space type of adventure should be. Let's hope it gets there. Read Full Review

    The art by Jones is done in the sketchy style that another collaborator of Niles uses so well(that would be Ben Templesmith). It adds to that generic, knockoff feeling. Sadly, the issue doesn't get much better than that. Hopefully the rest of the series picks up and makes for itself a more original identity. Read Full Review

    With that being said, this is not a terrible book by any means. In this case, the book is more "forgettable" than anything, and I think that allowing time for the book and the writer to stretch their legs, get comfortable, and flesh out the characters a bit more, I think that this may be an enjoyable book. Regarding Delta 13, I am on board" for now. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 27, 2018

    Delta 13 #1 is not a good start to this series. It leaves breadcrumbs that could lead to interesting places, but the pacing, at-times inorganic dialogue, characterization, and art all fall just short of being good. Its not unbearable, but it is a struggle to even call it passable. As such, I cant recommend this comic. Give it a pass. Read Full Review
