    Abnett and Lanning have proven themselves countless times to be more than capable of reviving ailing parts of the Marvel U and Heroes for Hire proves that that extends to parts of the 616 that arent Cosmic. Whatever the grand plan for Heroes for Hire ultimately is, I cant wait to find out. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 10, 2011

    Overall, there's nothing in Heroes For Hire that is overtly unpleasant, and the major elements of story and art are nicely handled, but there's still an important unknown element missing for me. Maybe it's the "Misty in danger" arc, or maybe it's my leeriness of yet another Marvel attempt to launch a team book of perceived second-stringers given their track record (Young Allies, the second and third volumes of New Warriors, The Loners, S.W.O.R.D., reincarnations of The Defender & Alpha Flight, Captain Britain & MI:13, yadda yadda) and the current soft market. I want to love a book with The Falcon, Paladin, Iron Fist and more, but there's still a distance between me, the reader, and the narrative. All in all, though, it's not a bad book, with potential to be great, and I have faith in DnA's writing prowess, at least enough to get the book past the 6 month hurdle. Heroes For Hire #3 is an issue that shows how much potential the book has, earning 3 out of 5 stars overall. Read Full Review
