    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 8, 2010

    This is a romp through the Marvel Universe that promises to change things. It promises to deliver an exciting story. It promises to break new ground as King Chaos pits god against god, forcing new alliances and treatises to be enacted. It promises a great deal, and based on the first issue, it looks like "Chaos War" will be delivering on a regular basis. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 7, 2010

    Chaos War #1 earns a mighty 4 out of 5 stars overall, setting up our conflict without ever pulling plot points out of thin air, and giving the latest crossover madness a strong takeoff (with some turbulance for our heroes.) Its good to have Hercules back again Now, where in the heck is my Iron Fist? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Oct 11, 2010

    Chaos War #1 was a fantastic start to this Marvel event. Just as they did over on Incredible Hercules, Pak and Van Lente delivered one fun comic. Chaos War #1 is a perfect example of how you start an event. Pak and Van Lente did not waste any time setting up the story as they showed how big of a threat Chaos King was in the first few pages and what the return of Hercules means. There was no shortage of awesomeness in this issue. If you did not pick up Chaos War #1 then I implore you to do yourself a favor and pick this issue up. You do not want to miss out on this event.

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 15, 2010

    The backup story, set during Hercules's exile in an empty dimension prior to the main crossover event plot, is capable and diverting, and it helps to sum up Herc's character fairly well. Nevertheless, I don't think its inclusion was a smart move. The plot is inconsequential; I'd rather have paid a buck less for this comic book than read the "bonus" piece. Furthermore, it's not necessary to appreciate the main story. In fact, for those unfamiliar with Herc's recent past, it could end up being rather confusing. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Oct 9, 2010

    This is two weeks in a row that Marvel has really made me wish I hadn't picked up a book. I certainly won't go anywhere near this conceptual train wreck again. Read Full Review
