    On Comics Ground - Ian Cameron Sep 15, 2018

    This is a very moving issue. The comic itself is clearly a discussion of the effects school shootings can have on children who have to live with these horrific events. Marvel has even marketed the comic as such. Do I think this comic does so effectively? I'm not sure I'm the best person to ask, as living and growing up in Canada means that I've never had to deal with this fear. I do think the comic tells a very compelling story and does not hide from the subject it seeks to discuss. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Sep 12, 2018

    You couldn't have asked for a more powerful issue of Champions, and this year was the best time to tell it. This foe only wins when we keep silent, when we forget why we speak up against it, when we let despair keep us from hoping for better. I was touched, and this is was the joy needed to be felt as a reader of superhero stories. Read Full Review

    This is a wildly emotional book, and everyone should buy it, read it, and share it with someone else. Everyone. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 12, 2018

    The Champions (Miles in particular) live up to their title when challenged with a school shooting issue. This is a frank look at an ugly problem. It does not trivialize or over-dramatize. It does not prescribe facile or fantastic remedies. It reminds us of the wounds to which we're all susceptible and it inspires us to take action on our own. It is powerful and it is good. It is a potent reminder that in the wake of tragedy, stories about heroes only grow more important. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Sep 14, 2018

    I can understand Marvel wanting to tread carefully by not making any kind of statements that can be viewed as political, but if you are going to tackle a subject like this, make a statement. Provide solutions. Enough is enough, and our heroes should fight to make sure that things like this never happen again. Staying strong while it happens over and over again shouldn't be the only answer. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Sep 12, 2018

    Jim Zub, Sean Izaakse, Marclo Menyz, and Erick Arciniega might be dealing with one of the worst things that could happen to a community, but they never let that deter the power of said community and the enduring comfort that can stem from superhero comics. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Joe Grunenwald Sep 12, 2018

    I think it does what it sets out to do fine, but whether or not that's enough or what you're looking for in a comic is entirely a personal call. Read Full Review
