    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 11, 2018

    Saladin Ahmed and Javier Rodríguez assemble the first three members of a new Exiles squad, present them with a dangerous antagonist, and raise a lot of fascinating questions in this breathless revival. The characters and the challenges facing them receive just enough spotlight to leave us clamouring for more. The Exiles concept is one that runs on imagination, and these creators are feeding their new series plenty of high-octane fuel. This is gonna be a hot one. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Don Alsafi Apr 13, 2018

    Exiles isa comic book that could only take place in the Marvel Universe, yet it's so far out on the edges that readers needn't worry about its regular story getting interrupted or sidetracked by whatever the next crossover event turns out to be. The Avengers and the X-Men can take care of that " while the Exiles will likely be three universes away, fighting for even higher stakes. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - E.A. Sofia Apr 14, 2018

    Exiles #1 was an enjoyable read. I was a bit confused regarding why this issue wasnt longer, as many introductory chapters often are, because it would have offered more time to set the stage before the last-page reveal. In any case, there was enough here that combined the old and the new, the personal and the epic, the familiar and the weird in ways that inspire curiosity regarding future issues. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 11, 2018

    Exiles #1 is a fun and high-concept science fiction read. Its weighed down somewhat by the heavy exposition, but, when it gets moving, its very engaging. This is a promising book with a solid team behind it, and I recommend giving it a read. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jeremy Joanes Apr 11, 2018

    Exiles #1 lays the groundwork for what could be a fun and adventurous series. There are at least two more teammates to find and hopefully spends a little more time in their timelines and the comic gains a more even pacing. Fans of the original Exiles series will find satisfaction in returning with Blink to save the multiverse from cosmic forces. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Apr 12, 2018

    So far I'm cautiously optimistic about Exiles. The artistic team can bring all these pieces together, but can they make them gel into a coherent whole? Or will it get shredded in all the teleporting? Time will tell. For now, the team, both the writer/artists and characters, are promising enough to ride along with for a few issues. Let's see where Blink can take us. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 11, 2018

    There's nothing bad about this first issue but it also doesn't push the envelope enough… yet. This is a comic where anything can be done, so to stand out it needs to take advantage. What's presented is a standard get the team together story with half the team gathered. We'll see what this is like when the entire team shows up as the character interactions will potentially make it stand out but for a first issue, this is pretty standard stuff. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Apr 16, 2018

    The constant repetition of the impending threat, though necessary to inform each new character is a little dull and reminds me of the dad in Silent Hill who CONSTANTLY describes his daughter to NPC's he meets in the game and this drags the pace down somewhat. Though we only have two to go so hopefully next issue this will pick up. Read Full Review

    I have been excited about this book since Marvel announced it and put Saldin Ahmed as a writer. Exiles is a fun book that feels like the liberated team book from Marvel. The best thing about this type of story is that we can go anywhere at any time and it presents a real playground for a writer and this book has a very strong writer. Ahmed now has both Black Bolt and Abbott under his belt and he shows no signs of slowing down the great writing. Exiles starts by setting up an interesting take on Blink and giving us our first three team members. Ahmed wastes no time getting us into the stakes and for using the Unseen/Nick Fury Sr. to get us into what promises to be a big story. My hope is that Marvel lets this story run and evolve because that is what Exiles do best. A solid art team depicts locations with amazing ability. Each setting we blink to feels like an actual place and that it could exist. That is the balance that Ahmed will have to manage. He has all the ability to create crazy versions of every hero but he has to justify it or else we lose the impact. So far I am happy with this book. I have been looking for a great cosmic multiversal story since Ultimates2 and Exiles may be heavier on comedy but offers the same great ability to plot out the multi-verse.

    Pick this book up

    Pretty good start. Ahmed delivers an interesting story with a reasonable amount of humour. Loving that the whole team wasn't introduced in the first issue, as that would've made the pacing too fast. Great seeing Nick Fury Sr. again. The last page reveal was great as well. The artwork was very good too and it suits the overall tone of the book. I will be following this.

    RustonLF Apr 12, 2018

    There are a lot of things that worked for me in this start. There was some play with the layouts and art that was enjoyable. The colors were a bit bland but worked okay. The premise behind the story is one that should be enjoyable but of course requires some lead in. The problem is the lead in feels both rushed and a little uninteresting. The biggest exception to that for me was a young dying Nick Fury showing up in front of his older self. Characters have to be introduced since they are being pulled from all over but we get little personality in favor of exposition to explain the character. It is understandable that this would have to be done, but it is not handled in a creative or catchy way. It makes for a rough start to something that could be very interesting given what we do know. Hopefully future issues really start to get the ball rolling.

    The Exiles are Back ... Yeah ... But the team are not complet at the end of issue 1. Ooooh ! I also regret all the "Multiple earth are destroyed by a Time-eater (Crisis of infinity earth) so lately after Secret Wars. We have Blink in a earth like if Secret Wars didn't destroy here and her previous teammates. And I didn't like the part about the aunt (That not very clear and weighing the story). And weigh he already have with all the Unseen storyline. And so we leave issue 1 with the team not fully formed and already loosing 2 univers, but encountering the bad guy ... And their I was a little disappointed by the lack of originality (Logic it was him, but I would have preferred something else).
    For now I don't like Khan or the new Iron Lad (Because it's stated it a different one that the Young Avengers one).

    Cover - The team fully completed ... So wrong for this issue. I would have prefered the variant only with blink face, but My dealer couldn't have it. 1/2
    Writing - For now I don't see more originality than that. For Now the Parker's run should have been more supported, so Ahmed would have a great luck make more than 6 issues. 2/3
    Arts - That's not bad, but not my kind of art (Even if he try some daring composition). 2/3
    Feeling - I will support it because I love the Exiles, but this title have to give something more than that (Web Warriors end with issue 11, and X-treme X-men with issue 13. So This volume as to do better than that). 1/2

    I was looking forward to this and thought maybe Marvel would have another book that I would enjoy, but I found that I was wrong. I didn't think this one was good at all.
