• It's Ant-Man's Eleven! To pull off the job of a lifetime and stop a mastermind criminal, Scott has to pull together a new gang of... yeah, you guessed it. Criminals. It's a vicious cycle.
•  Wait, are you allowed to count yourself in the eleven? This is confusing...

    You can't help but love Rosanas's art detail, man. He's able to get the sarcasm and quips from character to character flawlessly. Nick Spencer is such a master of driving this C-string character into an environment that's not an Avengers-level adventure but still has high stakes nonetheless. We got a street level sci-fi hero here, folks. I'm not even sure if that's a new genre or been done before, but I am fucking with it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jun 16, 2016

    Written as a parody of the heist genre, complete with a "How to Do An Award-Winning Heist, in Twenty Two East Steps" playing out over as many panels, and artist Ramon Rosanas gets to have a bit of fun with every single one of them. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Jun 20, 2016

    A strong issue, with great dialogue and heist elements, and advances the story smoothly. Anyone who jumps in here will have a quick intro to get caught up, then it's time to, as the issue puts it, "Cue Ocean's Eleven soundtrack." Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 28, 2016

    Even though this was a book to get people caught up, it never got in the way of the story and it had a good flow to the whole thing. If you let it slip off your pull list or worse yet, forgot all about it like me, this is a great chance to get back in.  I can't wait to read the next issue! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 18, 2016

    Spencer has been laying the groundwork for this issue since the start of the series, putting the villains and supporting characters into place until he could bring them together for a very explicit movie reference, and I love it! Read Full Review
