    But Why Tho? - CJ Sep 27, 2020

    Commanders In Crisis #1 is a great twist on the event comic, featuring the kind of storytelling that has helped the superhero genre last throughout the years. Orlando, Tinto, and Cartenueto clearly have a deep love for the genre and know-how to shape it to their ends. I highly recommend this issue for comic fans old and new. The former will enjoy the new takes on old tropes while the latter may find some of their favorite heroes in Crisis Command. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Sep 9, 2020

    Commanders in Crisis #1 reads like the comic book equivalent of a doctorate dissertation in superhero comics from writer Steve Orlando and star-making turn for artists Davide Tinto and Francesca Carotenuto. It's the first chapter in an epic saga that doesn't neglect character in the midst of its multiversal scope and also leaves room for fluid action, clever concepts, and moments that will make you smile or shudder. This is while basking in the glow of a cast that is truly inclusive, who I can't wait to see overcome monumental challenges in subsequent issues. Read Full Review
