    Geekery Magazine - Chino DT Apr 4, 2019

    This comic has everything, good script, good art, you can even feel the love that the duo Kesel and Grummett put to their creation and great names you can see in the covers B and C of the issue: Jerry Ordway and Walter Simonson. This is a title that is really worth reading and following, I hope that in this re-launch it has better luck and rewards his creators after so many years of effort, for being a very good first issue and the effort of Kesel and Grummett for their creation they deserve five stars.

    Section Zero is a return to a long dormant creative idea and a return to form for industry veterans. Issue #1 is also enough to get any reader to return for the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Ronnie Gorham Apr 4, 2019

    There is a group of extraordinary people tasked with protecting the world from UFO's, ghost, and monsters. Why? Because the world isn't ready to know they truly exist. That's where Section Zero comes in, an elite group that keeps you believing none of those things are real. Writer/artist Karl Kesel & Tom Grummet bring us their long awaited Image Comics series Section Zero #1. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 29, 2019

    I honestly don't care how familiar this story is. It gets me every time. I love any kind of monster of the week serial, and this one looks like it will be one of the good ones. It doesn't take itself too seriously, the characters are fun, and the artwork is great. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Nikko Soto Apr 3, 2019

    Overall, I quite enjoyed reading this comic. Like I said, it does seem a bit predictable in terms of who the villain could probably be, but the way the comic ended automatically leaves me wanting to find out what comes next. We'll get to see the agents dealing with a new mission and see how they function as a team. I'll definitely be on the lookout for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Apr 2, 2019

    There's a lot to like here, and it's all wrapped up in a great narrative package delivered by veteran creators. Fans of late '90s and early '00s comics should definitely be excited as some of the sensibilities (but not all) remain intact from the time of this book's creation. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Craig Apr 5, 2019

    "Section Zero" doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it does deliver an entertaining sci-fi mystery with palpable enthusiasm. Read Full Review

    Ben Dimagmaliw really brought the story to life with his art, and what I appreciate most is the depth of field he created with his framing. All in all an interesting story. There wasnt too much detail in this issue, so Id like to see the direction they take in the next issue now that the plot has been set. As an avid fan of superhero teams, I appreciated the story, and if you are like me, I think you will too. Pick up your copy today and see what you think. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Jordan Claes Apr 2, 2019

    I've always held firm to the belief that you should never read a book for what's written on the outside; it's the words between the covers that matter. But in a brand-name world where even comic books aren't immune, this is often not the case. Sometimes creators get by more on their legacy and less on their merit. Maybe that's what I'm falling victim to here? I can't honestly say one way or the other. What I can confidently say is that Section Zero has a long way to go in a very short period of time and that as much as I respect the creative team at the helm, I don't know if that's enough to bring me back for next month.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - David DeCorte Apr 2, 2019

    SECTION ZERO #1 is a solid start to the story. The book offers plenty of action and intrigue, but falls short in characterization, relying on character archetypes to do some of the story's heavy lifting. If the creators can resolve that in future issues, it could be a great sci-fi/espionage story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Apr 3, 2019

    Section Zero #1 is clearly the creator's effort to right a wrong that occurred when it was cancelled back in 2000, down to the decision to retell the original storyline in this revamped release. They may have been able to get away with the storytelling back then, but sadly, today it fairly creaks and groans. Not terrible, but not awesome, Section Zero #1 is simply"there. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Apr 5, 2019

    It is great to live in a comic book environment where series can get a second chance. A lot can change in the nineteen years since Section Zero #1 was first published, and largely because of that it does not read as a series that needed a second life. Fans of the original may enjoy the rush of nostalgia, and those who love science fiction adventure may find joy with this concept. Outside of that its relatively standard approach will not do much to excite new fans to see this series finally finish. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Apr 5, 2019

    Section Zero is a great premise that could have gone any number of ways. It doesnt feel overly original now but it has a fine cast of characters and provides an enjoyable read, which, at the end of the day, line is pretty much what you want in a comic. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Matthew Dillon Apr 6, 2019

    A reprint of a never finished comic originally published nearly two decades ago. The years have not been kind to it. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Christian Hoffer Apr 3, 2019

    What might have felt exciting or new 20 years ago just feels like more of the same now, and it's hard to point out one thing that this comic really excels at that other comics lack. Read Full Review

    I was a fan of the first attempt of the writer as a Gorilla Comics issue.
    I'm so happy that Image edit it again.
    So not much change between both issue 1 (Yeah I still have the old ones.
    The panel are still the same but still really strong work. The only change is the colloring part.
    But both are god.
    What happen don't change too. So this is pretty much the same comics. But the position of the Buble changes. And I seen one who was lighten.
    I look forward to re-read the second et third issue especially that I have progress in my understanding of english. And I look even more curious to brought issue after the third one, to see where all this going one.

    Cover - Three version but I take the one close to more
