    An excellent read for fans, but might not be a good start for anyone new to the franchise. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Rashaad May 9, 2019

    Overall, Gears of War: Hivebusters #1 took a bit to get into as the beginning was a bit dull, but once the action started to ramp up and things started to make sense, I was all in for this issue. I would recommend this issue to those who are fans of the Gears of War franchise, since it does a great job of giving you that gritty vibe the games are known for. Along with some weird humor and a weirder backstory to one of the main characters, that will make you go, "Why!?" this is a great issue to pick up for fans of the franchise. Read Full Review

    Hivebusters #1 goes right up to the edge of being overly long but ends at just the right point that left me with optimistic expectations for #2. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott May 10, 2019

    Im not 100% certain what the creative team were aiming for with this series but as a longtime fan of the game I can say with absolute certainty that I wont be picking up issue two. Unfortunately, theres no feeling at any point in this issue that anybody involved in its creation is here for anything other than a paycheck. Read Full Review
