    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Feb 1, 2017

    Wow this was a great book and the only thing I could fault it for is that it is only a miniseries and not a ongoing series. But can you really fault a book for that? This is such an exciting book and shows Bullseye at his best. I have missed him from the Daredevil books and it's nice to be able to see him again. This may be only a five issue miniseries but I highly suggest you pick it up. Read Full Review

    With Bullseye, what you see is what you get. This story fits the character and his position within the Marvel universe, right down to wanton killing and deadly aim. The first issue was about what I expected and was executed well. Im not sure whats down the line, or how long Bullseye will be able to hold down a title, but it at least delivers exactly what it needed to, no holds barred. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - SHAY REVOLVER Feb 1, 2017

    Overall this issue as a whole was a solid read. The stories match up nicely and seem to complement each other. The two separate storylines also seem like if at some point they wanted to combine the two stories into one story, it would work well and it's quite feasible that the storylines could interconnect. The first issue of Bullseye gave us two really good stand alone stories that prove that Bullseye doesn't need the Devil of Hells Kitchen to be interesting or relevant. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 1, 2017

    Bullseye #1 won't change the way you look at this bloodthirsty assassin, but it does make the most of having Daredevil's nemesis in the driver's seat. It's fun, violent and brought to life in a very creative and energetic way thanks to artist Guillermo Sanna. Bullseye lovers won't want to pass up this book. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Feb 6, 2017

    The superhuman homicidal hitman has been gone for a while, but he's back in Bullseye #1 and determined to prove he's still got what it takes. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jess Camacho Feb 2, 2017

    A very good introduction (or reintroduction) to the character that makes no apologies for who he is but finds a way to deliver a compelling story. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Feb 1, 2017

    Though the characters are deplorable and hard to root for, this first issue is a reminder of how incredibly dangerous and deranged Bullseye can be. Bullseye #1 has a grungy crime drama feel not unlike 100 Bullets you won't want to miss. Read Full Review

    Bullseye #1 is prepared for readers having the attention span of the titular character, and in the end, it pays off. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Feb 2, 2017

    The need for a Bullseye series is there, but can this series stick around once the initial excitement wears off will be the true test of the story and art. The story has a good start, seeing Bullseye get in over his head going against an entire Columbian drug cartel has a lot of appeal. With art that gets the tone of the book there could be a lot to look forward to from this series as long as we see some depth added to Bullseye along the way. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Chris Arrant Feb 1, 2017

    All told, Bullseye #1 is a bit of a mixed bag. There’s a lot to like between the artwork by Sanna and Mrva, Bullseye’s sadism, and Brisson’s dialogue. But the story being told here doesn’t do anything to stand out from the pack. The backup story feels like a missed opportunity to do something new with the character. For fans of the lethal supervillain, this issue may give them what they’re looking for, but Bullseye #1 doesn’t give readers much of a reason to return. Read Full Review

    Bullseye almost nails the landing with a solid, but not perfect debut issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Columbus Comics Corner Feb 6, 2017

    Readers may enjoy the method of his technique to kill people with random things. But the story seems dull for this being the big return of Bullseye. That said, the art throughout the book helps makes up for the lack of a strong plot and backup story. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Feb 8, 2017

    Brisson's a talented writer and, as the fantastic Murder Book showed us, one who can balance of host of seemingly disparate plot elements, characters, and tones. Still, it can't help but seem like Bullseye #1 fails to quite reach the excellence of the books it's riffing on or gain any sort of subversive satisfaction from crossing the many lines of morality and good taste it happily does. There's good art here and style to spare but the problems with tone, character and just about everything else leave Bullseye #1 feeling like a copy of a copy, with returns rapidly diminishing page after page.

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Feb 8, 2017

    Garth Ennis' run on Punisher MAX is a comic that, on paper, should be easy to repeat and god if Marvel hasn't tried to make lightning strike twice. Ennis was vastly working through a formula, setting up a villain or group of villains, having them commit a series of unconscionably evil acts and then unleashing the Punisher on them like an avenging animal, his every immoral action justified by the malice of those he slaughters. It's a formula that should work for any villainous or antiheroic character, who, by virtue of the antagonists, ends up looking at least a little heroic by nature of bringing down some truly terrible people.

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Feb 6, 2017

    I went in really wanting this comic to be amazing. Instead I got stuck with a book that came off as second-rate. A terrible debut for a new series and one that fans should avoid in favor of better classic tales. Read Full Review

    Im always open for a good villain-led comic. Sadly, Bullseye #1 is a nasty bit of business that sacrifices humor for base violence. Read Full Review
