    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 11, 2018

    Hold your heads up high, Champions fans! Jim Zub and Sean Izaakse perform an impressive soft reset that makes this team even easier to love and nullifies a lot of the "oh, it could be great, but" complaints earned by previous issues. Champions #19 concentrates very productively on character relationships, and if future issues deliver as strongly on plot development, this title is poised for greatness. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Apr 11, 2018

    This issue is the start of a promising new adventure. We have a new team behind the wheel but the same feel. The smaller, more focused roster works in their favor and I certainly hope Marvel realizes what a great book they have on their hands. Now, can I get a Champions cartoon series? Please?

    Jim Zub and Mark Waid just finished on Avengers No Surrender together. Considering the outstanding teamwork they did on that book. Zub is probably the best choice to take over where Waid left off. Zub begins in fine style, remembering that this is a teen book and doesn't miss the subtleties that give a teen superhero book heart. I'm strapped in and ready to see what's in store. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Aaron Anderson Apr 16, 2018

    I think Jim Zub is playing it a little safe here. Maybe a little too safe. These heroes are already battle tested and he seems to dumb them down a little too much in my opinion. I can understand he wants to do that to allow for growth and suspense. The art is gorgeous it reminds me of watching the Ultimate Spider-man cartoon. Cho seems a little de-aged and written slightly out of character a little too much of a corny hipster in my opinion. Once Jim gets these characters voices down a little more I think this will be a great comic. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Paul Manzato Apr 14, 2018

    Overall, as you might have guessed, I was underwhelmed with this new creative team and their debut issue. The story is generic with a "been there, done that" feel to it, and the art was just ok to me, with some really weird depictions of Hulk throughout. Read Full Review
