    The issues get better and better. The story line gets stronger and stronger. Go back and purchase issues 1-8. You'll be glad you added this to the collection! Again, note that the script continues to get deep and thought provoking, the art pushes the edges in story telling and the colors are as vivid as any comic produced. Image has a hit on its hands.

    Typically, in a limited run series like this, the writer has begun to exhaust their ideas and lets the big battle carry the book over the finish line.

    AIPT - Madeleine Chan Jun 2, 2021

    Commanders in Crisis #9 overall feels like Orlando's primarily preparing for the climax of the story, but it's a necessary setup. Unlike some other comics' expositional issues, this one doesn't feel like a simple filler -- and despite a few lulls, continues to explore the story's themes and character dynamics. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 2, 2021

    Orlandos been pretty restless with the narrative of this series throughout. The ninth issue makes this feel all the more frustrating by flashing by a few really clever moments that could have made been expanded into issues all their own. (The villains could have been expanded into their own series.) There is a delicate art in ensuring that everyone in a large ensemble gets enough time on the page. Orlandos not doing a perfect job of maintaining an engaging balance between characters. Read Full Review

    As we near the last few issues of Commanders in Crisis, the issue's eclectic and sporadic array of superhero elements are beginning to collide in a way that is both intriguing and a little cluttered. Read Full Review
