    The MU's "godly" side has usually disinterested me, so I'm quite pleased by how infinitely engaging I find this quirky intersection of mythologies, both historical and Marvel-based, to be. Between this, Shadowland and Curse of the Mutants, Marvel's offering you manageable crossovers to suit your specific tastes. If you're a fan of the inventive with equal servings of terror and tongue-in-cheek, I recommend enlisting in the Chaos War. Read Full Review

    While I am still not a fan of Khoi Pham's artwork in this series, the story is being told well enough in every aspect that it is hard not to recommend the book. Whether you're a Herc fan, a cosmic and Marvel mythology fan, or you just like to see stories which feature insurmountable odds for your favorite superheroes, then take a look at Chaos War.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 22, 2010

    "Chaos War" has been an interesting story to this point. Although dubbed the Chaos King, Mikaboshi is attacking with an order and a purpose that puts the "God Squad" up against significant danger and seemingly insurmountable odds just in time for a cliffhanger ending. November seems to be a big month filled with a great deal of "Chaos War" related offerings, but this issue is a brilliant primer for whatever comes next. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Oct 22, 2010

    If amusing dialogue, lovely characterization and clever plotting fail to persuade you, perhaps Koi Pham's, Thomas Palmer's, and Sunny Gho's masterful illustrations can. Pham and Palmer make these gods live up to the sobriquet. They accent the majesty and power of Thor through a lesson in scale. Thor though comparatively smaller than a DC-10 nevertheless holds it in the air in an awesome scene. Hercules, though a so-called super god still behaves like Hercules and occasionally ends up with egg on his expressive face. Hela storms onto the stage. The Chaos King manifests as a frightening creature with Hieronymus Bosch styled proportions and Geiger grin. Venus plies her beauty and her voice. Every panel just exceeds in creating the illusion of a larger than life battle waged by gods in the arena of earth. Read Full Review

    Im not dropping this book, but thats more out of loyalty to the writers and characters than anything else. Im hoping the next four issues will redeem this title and prove to me that its not the carbon copy it feels like at this point. I want to be wrong. Time will tell. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Oct 22, 2010

    If you didn't like issue #1, but do generally like the godly characters of the Marvel U. or enjoy cosmic-scale action, this might be worth another look (at least the main event series). This wasn't “awesome”, but it was good enough to warrant picking up the third issue. The tie-ins are probably a no-can-do at this point unless you really like a particular creator who works on one of those projects. Read Full Review
