    Capeless Crusader - Jesse Quick-Rincon May 13, 2014

    The art is clean and dynamic. The entire comic is in black and white so it loses points for that, but the panel transitions are crisp and don't waste too much time. The art also manages to capture some poignant images well through some great acting and facial drawing. I felt on the GMO comic that the panel work messed with the borders unnecessarily, but maybe it works fine with the coloring in it which it will be in the actual comic. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick May 14, 2014

    This could have been a weighty tome, but the quirky title hints that there are still lighter moments. That being said, Hawkins confesses that he does not take the issue of PTSD lightly. 25 cents from every book sold goes to the Wounded War Project. 23 pages of comic book, followed by copious amounts of interesting notes and discussion on the reality of PTSD and the science "fact" of the story, another mini story involving an SMS conversation, and a preview of another Matt Hawkins book, Wildfire, all comes together to make a memorable read. Bring on Think Tank Season Two (now in full colour!) Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II May 22, 2014

    As a mental health professional, I found the research and portrayal to be quite accurate. Homework was done here and it is my hope that this story can gain some added traction and help to the Wounded Warrior project of which the story is aiding with support. This issue also offers a nice primer to the next volume of Think Tank, which promises to be back and in color no less. I can't wait. And yes, yes, reading this book does make me smarter. It will make you smarter too. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed May 14, 2014

    I don't think this was a good issue #1, because a whole lot of nothing happened, but I am interested enough to pick up #2, so maybe it's good enough. Nothing happened to draw me inand keep me flipping pages, but I like where the story is going, so I'll check out #2. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Justin Giampaoli May 20, 2014

    Matt Hawkins has clearly done his research, everything from legal defenses around dissociative episodes, to the perception of PTSD as "weakness" in military culture, all embodied in the plight of Navy SEAL Morgan, the guy who helped save David a while back. This is a well-intentioned issue, a good cause, a decent issue that sees David trying to do something to help vs. just weaponizing all of this R&D technology. Hawkins is even donating 25 cents of every extra dollar for this 68 page thing, and that's all admirable, but I still felt that as a single comic, it was a bit all over the place. Read Full Review
