    CHUD - Jeb Delia Feb 17, 2012

    I've often felt that what superheroes really need is to sprout some new branches away from the trunk of Marvel and DC, a place where there's no status quo to shake up and room to create something from scratch that might actually appeal to new readers. Glory's notquite a new character, but she's certainly unshackled by the heavy weight of continuity and, perhaps more crucially, her authors show a delightful willingness to think outside the box that is the superhero paradigm. Like its titular character, Glory manages to be old and new at the same time, and keep the best aspects of both. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Feb 16, 2012

    Time will tell if "Glory" can find that perfect tonal balance but no matter what it will be a good time watching these creators (and characters) get there. "Glory" #23 has some of the most innovative and ballsy work comics has seen for a long time. This is a re-launch, people. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Mar 3, 2012

    I was a little disconcerted by my first glimpse of Campbell's interpretation of the Wonder Woman knockoff who serves as the title character, as I found her to be far too babyfaced. That child-like look atop a bulky, powerful form seemed a bit unnatural, but Campbell quietly instills maturity in her face as the issue (and time) progresses. Campbell's style is an unconventional choice for a super-hero book, but that's what I enjoyed the most about it. Despite the more exaggerated aspects of his style, there's a rich level of detail to be found in the character designs and settings. Overall, there's a melancholy look to the art, matching the same tone in the story, and it's surprisingly enticing and engaging. I think I may like this book even better than Prophet.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Feb 15, 2012

    The team of Keatinge and Campbell did a very solid job refreshing this title and making it accessible for new readers. Glory is shaping up to be a wild ride with action and brains, a combination that is hard to find. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Nick HanoverJason SacksDavid Fairbanks Feb 19, 2012

    Despite my criticisms of the book, I can't wait for Glory #24 next month. I don't expect the title to compare to Prophet, but it's still better than quite a bit of other comics out there and anybody not reading it is really missing out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Andrenn Jan 13, 2012

    Glory #23 is an excellent start. I have a lot of faith in what Keatinge wants to do with this title. This series already has a ton of potential out of the gate and if Keatinge and Campbell can keep the pace going then we have got an amazing new series on our hands. Keatinge already has the right formula for the characters, all he has to do is keep things going at a good pace and I can see Glory being a great read every month. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 15, 2012

    I can't say that I was wowed by this book like I was by Prophet, but I did enjoy it a lot. I'lldefinitely be picking up the second issue and will throw a guess out there thatthis is Image's next book to sell out. If you were a fan of the series beforeyou'll definitely dig this next installment of Glory, but if you are like me and this is your first experiencejust know that it's as welcoming to new readers as it is to the old.
