    Compared the other works of Hickman, this is a much more traditional comic that is going to easier to grasp but still remains smart but doesn't talk down to the reader. Everyone is looking for a book with a new team with a world that can be fully explored. Hickman's universe already shows a harsh history with stories to tell, and I can't wait to read more into it.

    Major Spoilers - Mike McLarty Nov 15, 2010

    This is a good book that had all the makings of being great. If you're a fan of space epics, dense storytelling and intricate line work, you could do much worse than buying a copy of Red Mass For Mars. I always enjoy reading Hickman's work and this collected edition earns 3.5 stars out of 5. Read Full Review

    This first issue just establishes the setting, really, and doesn't go much beyond it. Presumably, the remaining three issues will show the human resistance to the alien threat. But Hickman's other work has avoided cliche, and I hope this one will, also. We've seen alien invasion stories a million times (this summer's Marvel mega-crossover is founded upon it, of course), but I think if anyone can provide a fresh spin on that stale old story, it's Jonathan Hickman. And he's off to a good start here. Read Full Review
