    Comicsverse - AJ Zender Sep 17, 2017

    RETCON #1 is an imaginative, trippy new military fantasy from Image Comics. While some of the promised plot lines aren't fully explored in this issue, the stellar art style and interesting characters make me want to stick with this story into this future. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Courtney Ryan Sep 11, 2017

    Still, with a unique twist on an all-too-familiar gimmick, the sublime art, and the fantastical elements that pepper its world, Retcon holds a promising future " one that could very well live up to the high expectations it has already set for itself. Read Full Review

    I can't say that I like this. I also can't say I hate it because it's just so difficult to decide what's going on. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards Sep 13, 2017

    Based on this first issue, I don't think I can recommend Retcon. I might come back for issue #2 just to see if it does start to shake things up in a meaningful, hopefully reality-bending, way. But for now, I'd say skip it. And if you're still intrigued by the premise of a military unit for the paranormal, seriously, just go read Cry Havoc instead. It's eerily similar in that regard yet also far more fulfilling a read. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Sep 12, 2017

    Retcon #1 fails to be "all-new" or "all-different", delivering more of the same tired covert superheroic schlock. The artwork is messy, the story mediocre and there's no sign of the big idea promised by the sales blurb. In short, Retcon #1 needs another reboot to be worth reading. Read Full Review
