    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 20, 2010

    This issue is very moving, in a number of ways, we see Hercules accepting his ultimate fate, while Amadeus deals with the sudden responsibility of power, Athena betrays the one she loves, and Aphrodite is forced to realize that she has lost her path. We don't actually see the moment wherein Hercules dies, only a massive explosion, making me wonder what we DON'T know (and making me wonder about the nature of this 'alternate reality' that Continuum creates.) Seeing Amadeus stepping up to the role of Prince of Power is a bittersweet one for me, with my only real comfort coming from the 'Ben Grimm Corollary,' which states, "if ya don't see a body, he ain't fer shure dead."

    Certainly, I'm not going to sit here and pretend to be the ultimate Hercules connoisseur, as the only trade in my bookcase is the Secret Invasion crossover (although the rest will be purchased at a convention someday), and didn't start picking up this title until this event began. But, thanks to Van Lente, Pak, and Buschemi, the last six months have been a thrilling ride towards Olympus. Let's hope this epically underrated series doesn't falter with Prince of Power.

    IGN - Kevin Fuller Feb 17, 2010

    Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente should be congratulated for building a unique/entertaining series from scratch and winning over a lot of skeptics (myself included) along the way. This isn't the end of the road though, since the story will continue with Prince of Power, and I have no doubt that the quality will be at the same high standard. Read Full Review
