    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Mar 20, 2010

    Scot Eaton is reaching all new highs with his artwork and the wonderful inking talents of Andy Lanning and Robert Campanella does not hurt either. However the colorist Jean-Francois Beaulieu also brings something to this group that should not be overlooked. First of all this book is dark. There are really heavy shadows that are balanced out perfectly by what looks like digital water colors. This art team is simply perfect. I can see them easily heading up Marvel’s next big mini series. If you are not reading this book you are seriously missing out. Read Full Review

    Eaton is used to the Black Panther and his black characters actually look like they are black, instead of Caucasian with brown painted on them. The characters also each have their own looks. This is good. Unfortunately, the darker colour palette used by Beaulieu is too dark to enhance the work of Eaton and the entire book ends ups being a smudge of lines and colours that is not really appealing, although the artist is fine. The cover by Romita was poor by all standards and looks like it was put together at the last minute just so they could say Romita participated and try to sell more copies. Well poor covers, even by Romita dont tend to do that. Read Full Review

    All in all, the issue is a bit of a mixed package. I can't necessarily recommend the book, as I'm still not sure what it's about. At the same time, I can't denounce it either – it potentially holds a lot of promise. Let's hope that the next issue will show its true colors and we can decide for good whether or not we want to be a part of DoomWar. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 17, 2010

    The political undertones of this story -- Doom fueling a civil war within Wakanda to distract from his true goal -- is well devised, but ultimately falls short of its potential. This isn't the shiniest gem to come out from Marvel this week, but it's also not the dullest. This is a slightly above average story with aspirations of being great. With four issues left in this series, there's a great deal of story left to be told and things are ramping up, if somewhat unevenly. Maybe it will be great, but for now, Marvel's offering some stiff competition against themselves. Read Full Review
