    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Manzo Mar 7, 2022

    A solid introduction to a spin-off series that gives the impression it will be able to more than stand on its own. It does a great job of showing the reader the circumstances of the new protagonist, but it does lack the action it hints at. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 1, 2022

    Rogue Sun #1 is a promising start to a superhero series that feels fresh, focusing on its characters while throwing them into unique dynamics. There's a familiarity with the superhero as tropes are present, but it's incredibly fresh at the same time. More importantly, this first issue is incredibly accessible and is an easy pick up for anyone who loves superheroes and wants something a little different. Read Full Review

    Issue #1 is always a gamble for any company. However, Image does a great job of hitting for the fence on all issue #1. Look at Spawn. Walking Dead, Nocterra to name a few. Who knows"Rogue Sun may catch on like those. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Jeremiah Gagnon Mar 22, 2022

    Overall I enjoyed reading this. This seems like a story that will be worth reading and to keep up with. They don't hold your hand and provide little details here and there to show us that there is more going on in this world than just what we see. I have questions that I hope will be answered as the story progresses: who is Mr. Abernathy, and why does he know Rogue Sun? What is Rogue Sun's power set? What are his weaknesses? Who are the supervillains who mask themselves and have gone toe to toe with Rogue Sun in the past? How will Dylan learn to control his new found powers? I am eager to know the answers and see how deep Rogue Sun goes. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Feb 13, 2022

    Rogue Sun has loads to love. Im a fan of the art direction and costume choices here. The prose works for me and whilst Im not gushing over the character of Dylan, I dont think were meant to; this despite all the reasonable excuses. Im just not sold on what new delights and places Rogue Sun can explore, and where this can, and will, go. That said, given all the good stuff going on, and the strength of talent in the team, I would certainly lean towards optimism. Read Full Review
