    Dan Abnett gives us a fun and exciting story. We get to meeta few new characters that some readers may be unfamiliar with but thosecharacters are quickly established and even likable. The art compliments Abnett'sgreat writing and storytelling by being gorgeous and really being able to showmovement and action in an incredible way. This issue got me investing in thisbook and I'm excited for next month when issue 3 comes out. Read Full Review

    I went through two issues hoping things would pick up; the title of the series pulled me in, the art kept me interested, but the lack of pure intensity in the story is just not sitting well with me. It seems to me that the story could have just been titled Hercules instead of Gods of War. It didn't feel like it had much of anything to do with Civil War, even as filler, it's just about Hercules. The first issue had a couple of pages about what's going on in the Civil War, but the major heroes in the Marvel Universe have made it perfectly clear that they don't want Hercules involved. Hercules didn't take that rejection in stride very well, and I got a story that felt more about his depression towards not being included in the major Civil War situations. The lack of action here is just not my cup of tea, and I'm done with it after this issue. Read Full Review

    A great team and some good action, although it feels a little rushed in terms of progression. One of the better "Civil War II" tie-ins, considering it uses the event comic as a backdrop to the continuing story from the "Hercules" comics. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jul 13, 2016

    The artwork is still very solid in this comic, these larger-than-life characters are brought to life well and they're given a grandiose appearance. Even the new Gods look up to date and more current, they're shiny and brand new – where the old Gods are more worn. Read Full Review
