    They're playing on a big scale here, and so far, it's been a lot of fun to follow along. You might need a scorecard to keep all the characters straight, but the story is an intense battle for survival, and has a lot to offer. Recommended! Read Full Review

    Visually, this may be Khoi Pham's strongest issue so far. Pham often struggles with clarity and consistency. While there are cases where characters sport unusual or unclear expressions, on the whole that consistency is much stronger this time. All the pieces seem to be falling into place for Chaos War now. Now as the conflict explodes wide open and the onslaught of tie-ins is about to begin, readers will be able to judge if this is the swan song the Incredible Hercules saga truly deserves.

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Nov 5, 2010

    The engagement takes on greater import, and the creative team craft conversation and art suitable for the gods at war. However, make no mistake, Chaos War is not another War of the Gods. This mini-series differs strongly from the mediocre Big Stupid Event. While there are lives at stake, Van Lente safeguards them smartly and transports the defense against the nightmarish invader to a higher plane. The immortal gods know each other, which leads to some witty banter, particularly from Sersi, that puts a lighter flourish to the drama. I didn't expect much from Chaos War, but it continues to deliver. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 7, 2010

    When "Incredible Hercules" was initially canceled and replaced with a series of mini-series ("Hercules: Fall of an Avenger," "The Heroic Age: Prince of Power," and "Chaos War") it seemed like a good enough way to continue on the book even in the face of struggling sales. Now, though? It's a sad way to (presumably) see Hercules's series come to a close. Everyone deserves better than this. Read Full Review
