    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Mar 5, 2020

    This is why comics are made. Balls-out fun from start to finish, with more than enough mystery, comedy, and thrills to go around. Excellent work! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 26, 2020

    Juanan Ramirez does some great work with the art in this issue. There is a lot of action and Ramirez does a great job of making the visuals vibrant and filled with energy as the characters fight hordes of enemies. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 25, 2020

    This is a fun action and adventure comic with plenty of fast-moving action visuals to satiate even the biggest Schwarzenegger fan. Once again I'm pleasantly surprised to find tie-ins to a mini-event being this damn good. Read Full Review

    Force Works #1 is a quick introduction to a team with potential. These are not Earth's Mightiest Heroes, nor are they colorful and flashy superheroes. What they are are heroes with a past and a sense of duty. Each of these characters is usually relegated to supporting roles and this provides Rosenberg room to expand and define the team as the series grows. As Rosenberg draws out that sense of duty while dealing with their past, he will make this series and these characters successful. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Aaron Anderson Feb 28, 2020

    The art and colors are quality, the best part of this title, in my opinion. The story has, as of yet, not justified the purpose for this title. I really like all the characters in this title and I find the cliffhanger intriguing enough to read issue two, but I cant at this point encourage anyone to buy this comic. It just feels to much like padding to extend my he Iron Man 2020 story out farther than it should be. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Tanner Dedmon Feb 26, 2020

    2020 Force Works puts together yet another group of heroes who don't really want to be working together. They might not be a functional group in the first issue, but their overall dynamic is at least interesting enough to set up the story and some meaningful inter-team conflicts and conversations.

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Feb 25, 2020

    Even with the surprisingly textured artwork of Juanan Ramirez and Federico Blee there isn't enough to make Force Works 2020 #1 a highlight of the 2020 checklist. Read Full Review
