For years, Tyrone Johnson and Tandy Bowen were the super hero duo called CLOAK AND DAGGER -- waging a citywide war on drugs, organized crime and corporate greed. In recent years, their crusade has taken them across the globe, fighting alongside Spider-Man, The X-Men and even The Avengers, and though they've drifted apart, a dangerous threat from their past has resurfaced -- one that will force Cloak and Dagger to reunite and come to terms with their truest feelings for one another and the past they share!

    This is a really good first issue that does some great character building and conflict creation. Really want to see where it goes. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Jun 12, 2018

    Issue #1 takes the series off on a strong start, pairing a tight narrative and strong characterization with a surprising amount of psychological depth and some well-planned art. This miniseries seems to be aimed at a slightly older audience than the show it is promoting, but that is more of a strength than a weakness. It's a good jumping on point for new readers.

    If you wanted more Cloak & Dagger, this first issue did not disappoint and was a satisfying entrypoint back into their world. Not your average superhero story, and not your average superpowered duo either. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 21, 2018

    Really strong art and a story that does some interesting things with well-established characters make for an interesting issue and/or two issues of comics. Read Full Review

    Thankfully, the writing (mostly) overpowers the poor artwork, and the issue is a solid take on the characters. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart Jun 7, 2018

    A digital-only miniseries isn't a bad way to go if you're looking to bring characters back to the comics fold as a promotional tie-in, but Cloak & Dagger #1 lacks the heart of the adaptation it's trying to capitalize on. Read Full Review
