    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Jun 15, 2022

    Seven Sons #1 is disturbing, fascinating, repellent and attractive to read all at once. An apocalypse tale with the perfect choice of artist to bring the story to life that takes the idea of the Seven Sons and builds a world around it doing so with a strong script and powerful imagery. It's a fascinating piece of speculative fiction that wont be for everyone but those who enjoy fictional takes on religious ideologies will. Read Full Review

    From the first page, superstar Jae Lee‘s artwork grabs your attention and never lets go. Add in a strong, yet controversial, script that tells the story of seven children born of virgin mothers on the same day and you have the makings of a compelling tale. Read Full Review

    Very strong start to a series that I wasn't sure about going in. Well-written from start to finish, and the ending gives you a little extra push going into the second issue. Read Full Review

    Seven Sons #1 is a challenging first chapter. It sets the scene effectively with use of its strong art, but makes the reader work through a non-linear story to get any real details. Read Full Review

    It's difficult to describe Seven Sons writers Robert Windom & Kelvin Mao's work in the series as biting satire when it frankly doesn't seem all that different from reality at times. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 15, 2022

    Seven Sons #1 is an interesting comic with a lot of potential. It's easy to see where it's going to go and hopefully it surprises me with its villains but, as is the comic is a wait and see. I'm close to saying it's a buy but there's just enough that made me cringe that I can't quite bring myself to do it. Read Full Review

    Seven Sons trades church bells for cash registers. But hey, if Jesus is coming back, might as well sweeten the deal with a 50% off sale, right? Read Full Review

    AIPT - Robert Reed Jun 15, 2022

    Seven Sons #1 is gorgeous thanks to the artwork by Jae Lee, but the story doesn't quite get going here as the debut issue focuses more on building out its world. Read Full Review
