    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray May 6, 2013

    Hickman demonstrates that he already has a firm grasp on the cosmic, and these creepy opening pages really do give us the same tingle we felt all the way back in 2006 at the start of Annihilation. As the cover implies, we will probably see The Inhumans, the New Avengers, Dr Strange and a whole lot more before the saga is out. Cheung's art, accompanied by Mark Morales's inks, is nothing short of epic, from the dark landscapes of the intro to the promise of a galaxy spanning saga at the end of this 10-page teaser. After the very disappointing issues of Thanos Rising to date, this has finally got us excited about his reappearance in the Marvel cosmic universe Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay May 4, 2013

    "Infinity" is a mixed bag. It's full of good stuff, and it will probably whet the whistles of regular fanboys, but it doesn't seem to fulfill the Free Comic Book Day manifesto, which should be to lure in new readers. The first two sections are completely baffling as to their inclusion, and the fact the first and last sections are only teases for larger things later down the line doesn't give readers a full sense of what comics can do -- unless what comics does well is constantly leave cliffhangers. This is a fun read but it isn't definitive, rather something new readers might thumb through out of curiosity. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori May 8, 2013

    The illustration is gorgeous, of course, but at the end of the story, I'm left wondering what it is I just read, and whether this makes me want to read more. And sadly the answer is no. I'm actually less likely to pick up Infinity as a result of this effort " the exact opposite of my reaction to Captain Midnight, a book I probably would have ignored if not for its feature on this special day.

    . . . FREE! ad/ preview snippet-fest. . . I grabbed this expecting to be a 'must read' warm up to the next upcoming marvel Xover/mega crapfest. Instead it is snippets of lame, for the most part. Regular readers may glean something, but it does nothing for the lapsed marvel reader in me.
