    'All-America Comix' is the kind of experiment you want to see more of, especially if you're tired of superhero comics. It's filled with wit, creativity, and a sense of excitement. Casey and Nguyen make a strong statement that superheroes can feel different, but still bring you the joy and impact of the best #1 issues in comic book history. Add 'All-America Comix' to that pile.

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Jul 1, 2020

    All-America Comix is an intriguing one-shot with a bit of a cliff hanger, that has a smart, snarky and delightful newbie superhero that deserves a longer run. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Benjamin Morin Jul 1, 2020

    All-America Comix crafts an engaging narrative despite some dialog issues. This is a series rich with potential and a solid first issue that left me wanting more. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 1, 2020

    For those that might not know Casey's history with Miss America, they may find a hero they want more of. For those that know the character, it's hard to not examine every word and every decision made. It's a fascinating comic on multiple levels but a frustrating one. Where Casey could have shown us what he'd have done with his creation that was far superior than what we've seen, instead we get what feels like a creator venting about having their toys taken away.

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Jun 27, 2020

    All America Comix #1 is a frustrating read because it has such a fun concept but falls short in so many areas. Still, this might be worth checking for fans of America Chavez, or just Marvel fans in general. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Justin Munday Jul 1, 2020

    Despite an inspiring concept and a couple of cool moments, this one-shot is marred by inconsistent artwork and a crippling over-reliance on contemporary slang and culture. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, All-America Comix #1 feels like a generic version of your favorite snack food"it's enjoyable, and it gets the job done at the moment, but you're ultimately left wanting more of the real thing. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jul 3, 2020

    It is a shame, because it actually feels dated. And that is the hardest thing in this comic to get past. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Jul 7, 2020

    I was drawn to this idea of a younger superhero with modern resources and trials. However, I don't think America came out much better than a caricature. I want to see this character fleshed out and perhaps in issue 2 we will see that. The art and writing was decent but it didn't really go beyond a simple idea. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Blair Jul 3, 2020

    Decent artwork and the potential for real life legal drama are the reasons why this final score isnt any lower. Read Full Review

    Wow I was so excited for this comic and... yeah, it's terrible, actually. Joe Casey is desperately trying to write a modern teenager and the result is one of those cringe-inducing affairs where an adult makes it clear that they haven't spoken to a teenager since they were in high school. It reads like he made a list of every slang term employed by anyone under 40 in the last ten years and wanted to get every single one of them into the comic so we could all see how "down with the kids" he is. Casey tries to have America not-Chavez distinguish herself from Millennials, but he doesn't seem clear on what the distinction is between the generations. Most notably, the constant use of #hashtags for their own sake, which makes for both an unreadabl more

    This book was extremely disappointing and had nothing that made me want to come back for another issue. Poor writing, poor art, desperately using blatant ripoffs of characters from other companies....just nothing worth taking another look at.

    GTMedia Reviews Jul 27, 2020

    All America Comix #1was a random addition to the comics pile a few weeks ago. I had no idea what to expect aside from the fact that the lead character is clearly a reskin of America Chavez. I've never read a Miss America comic so I don't know much about her. I know she's a divisive character depending on what circle of fandom you associate with.

    I'm not sure Why America Chavez is being repurposed here for image comics. I'll dig into the situation after posting the review. I think it's more important to get my thoughts out regarding the actual comic than any of the background shenanigans.

    The comic itself is pretty good. I won't call the book woke but the character definitely has a progressive bent. I'd consider more
