    A very strong first issue for me. It'll be interesting to see the team deal with that's to come. Read Full Review

    A solid debut, and one that makes me want to drop $40 on an action figure Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Aug 12, 2015

    As in any good story setup, we get a point of mystery that it would seem must be solved before things get really BAD. How to solve it? Of course it is tied to things the String Divers observed on their sub-atomic mission. Resolving this will drive the story and no doubt save the world as a result. I'm hooked, mostly because I'm a sucker for “different” and this fills that bill quite nicely. I can safely say I'm not reading any other comic like String Divers and I really enjoyed the science angle, though as a lay-person, I'm sure that all kinds of scientific inaccuracies can be put over on me that might be called out by an actual particle physicist. I was entertained and that's what is important. I'll also be back for issue #2, which is the real goal of a #1 issue, so it succeeded with me on that front. Read Full Review

    For a concept as complicated as string theory, this comic book sure does a good job of un-complicating it. This is an impressive first issue to what I can only imagine will be a very successful series. Time and space are two concepts that I could talk about forever, so I am definitely a fan!

    String Divers #1 is not perfect, but it's a solid start for a fascinating idea for a comic. Keep an eye on this one. Read Full Review

    String Divers is not off to a strong start. It's got some talent underneath the “C” effort art and writing, but I don't know if it's going to reach a lot of people in this package. It's certainly not the worst comic I've read, but there's nothing to make it shine either, and in today's crowded market, I suspect it's going to get buried and forgotten about quickly.

    Newsarama - Oscar Maltby Aug 12, 2015

    String Divers #1 is a frenetic and saturated mess of a comic book, in the most complementary terms. Ryall's script is simplistic, although there are some big themes here that should ripen nicely as the series continues. Artistically, Daniel's artwork is full of expression and excitement, even if it does look flat and depthless. String Divers has the potential to be something really special, but it isn't - at least not yet. Read Full Review

    Though it's still trying to decide who it's for, "String Divers" #1 is a fun concept with a lot of potential. With audiences still turning up for "Ant Man," it's a great time to debut a concept with similar ideas. Anything relating to Wood's art is cause for excitement, though, and this issue is worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Zac Kandell Aug 14, 2015

    The whole premise and crazy logic of the story is also an issue that I have. It's not about the concept itself or it being bad science, but it's not even an interesting use of it. Small scale disaster in the tiny world of string theory turns into a huge disaster in our world, but not in a logical or otherwise compelling way; instead, it plays out like kind of a typical big disaster, which is not what I was hoping for here. If you like any of the things I mentioned, you might be interested in this comic, but I doubt that I'll check out any future issues myself. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Aug 13, 2015

    The mystery about who attacked the String Divers doesn't intrigue me since there's not much reason to care about the actual Divers being hurt due their replaceable nature. The wider repercussions of the attack on the string are of slightly more concern, but even there we're not given a greater reason to care about the effected people in the end other than we ought to innately care about other humans. String Divers might interest others willing to try out new team books. It offers up a pretty bright story about an avenue of science not thoroughly explored in popular culture. If the characters can get a little more complex in future issues, this could definitely join the class of fellow sci-fi romps. Read Full Review
