    Nerds On The Rocks - Logan Dalton Feb 23, 2017

    Jeremy Whitley, Ro Stein, and Ted Brandt, and Frank DArmata capture the youthful Saturday morning cartoon energy of superhero comics and the pure power of kaiju movies in Champions #1.MU. Its the sequential art version of red velvet cake and ice cream. Watching Ms. Marvel think on her feet and wrestle a lizard monster with her polymorphing abilities should be the dictionary definition of joy, and I hope to see this talented team collaborate on more young, scrappy teen hero books in the future.

    CHAMPIONS joins the MONSTERS UNLEASHED story with a fun issue with plenty of monsters. Jeremy Whitley manages to slip in team building and great dialogue. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Chris Hassan Feb 22, 2017

    If you've been enjoying the Monsters Unleashed event, or just like to see your favorite heroes go Ultraman, you'd probably enjoy Champions #1.MU. But if you've got a limited weekly comics budget, you might be better off purchasing a book (or two) that packs a bit more of a punch and doesn't have a $4.99 price tag. This definitely isn't required reading for Champions fans. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Feb 22, 2017

    Whitley's dialogue heavy script makes Champions #1.MU a snore while Brandt and Stein feel like they are developing an interesting style. Read Full Review

    I have to hand it to Whitley for writing a story that feels very at home with the Champions. Again the story reflects an issue present in the U.S. today. The banter between the members is very fitting. The artist also do a great job with the characters as well. The only thing that brings this title down a little is the tie to Monsters Unleashed. The main focus of the tales seems to be the introduction of the Freelancer's as antagonist for the team. The monsters then become a reason for everyone to work together to stop a greater threat. At this point the title becomes like all the other tie-ins. Monster tries to destroy everything, citizens are evacuated, remaining heroes and villains try to stop monster. You can't complain much because it is to be expected in the Monsters Unleashed one shots. Overall this was one of the titles that tried to offer more in their special.

    I am not getting this new team at all. Not a truly good issue yet. Script and images, here, didn't wow me from Nova having to uber the team from the East Coast to the Freelancers intro/origin basically cut short by the story suddenly ending.
