    Jim Zub dives further into the character of Viv Vision and Sam Alexander when they are forced to face their fears at the hands of the Man-thing. The issue is a lot of fun and drama mixed with a young adult feel. The team behind Champions has a steady rhythm, and I would definitely recommend reading them. Read Full Review

    Jim Zub's run of Champions is doing fantastic things. He understands these young heroes and writes them all extremely well. I'm glad one of the most underrated teams in Marvel is in good hands. Read Full Review

    There is no rest for the Champions, that much is assured to us through the events of this issue. I was taken back by the balance of action, character development, and one heck of a twist that once again changes everything we knew about the direction this story was taking. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 10, 2018

    Champions #23 is an emotionally weighty and action-packed installment for this team of young heroes. They struggle to contain the Man-Thing while half the team is falling apart internally. Its a heavy-hitting issue, and I definitely recommend it. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Thankfully, however, we at least get little moments with each Champion at some point in the book and, although the ending is a bit messy, it's still another exciting edition to an already stellar series. Read Full Review

    Having the Champions " a team that is in tremendous flux, given the absence of Miles Morales, the depowering of Nova, and the additions of Amka and Ironheart " in a battle royale with Man-Thing might not be the most exciting premise on paper, but you have to give Jim Zub credit for writing the heck out of it.
