    Throw in an old Spidey villain with a brand new set of threads, and Heroes for Hire ends up being a perfect issue exemplifying how superhero comic books should make the reader feel. Delighted. Read Full Review

    Wooo, I REALLY enjoyed this issue! First off, I've always liked Misty Knight, and one of the things I really enjoyed from Heroes for Hire #1 was the fact that she was serving as an Oracle-like character, running things and directing heroes from behind the scenes. Had the Puppet Master not shown up in Heroes #1, I probably wouldn't have missed an issue... Anyway, as with pretty much anything written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, this was an exceptionally good comic. I honestly can't think of anything I want to complain about, so I'll just move on to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Lets hope they can keep up the style of this largely successful update of Marvels melding of old school kung fu and Blaxploitation film archetypes. So far its been a fairly sick balance between the ridiculous and the sublime, and Id miss that flavor if Marvel couldnt keep it going. Read Full Review

    "Heroes for Hire" #7 is an entertaining comic on the whole and has a good dynamic. Spider-Man's inclusion seems somewhat random when there are plenty of others heroes who could fill a similar role. But, contrasting him with Paladin works for the point that Abnett and Lanning are trying to make. Disposable fun that would have been at home as an issue of "Web of Spider-Man." Read Full Review
