    Al Barrionuevo's art also keeps the issue humming along. He excels at providing expressive, energetic renditions of villains and dynamically framed panels. There's a kinetic energy to the book that can't be denied, making this easily the most visually striking of the various Infinity offshoots. Read Full Review

    Overall, all I can say really is that I'm really, really looking forward to the second issue of the series, which will be coming in at the end of next month. Too long a wait for me! Read Full Review

    Only problem is at the very end with a twist that doesn't really click. Hopefully we don't lose a main character this early, but I hope that the explanation is good enough to satisfy a reason to keep reading this mini series. Creating such stories like this is the one thing that Infinity has provided the Marvel Universe. We get to see characters that haven't been seen in a while and they are given some relevance, even if it is just for this short time. Read Full Review

    This is not required reading in regards to the main Infinity event, but it's a fun book with quality art and storytelling. I'm a big fan of these Iron Man villains, and I'm looking forward to how they're portrayed the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Sep 26, 2013

    Infinity Heist #1 kicks off what could be a really interesting series going forward with a different focus than what we typically see in tie-in books. Tieri's concept is strong and his characterizations show the potential to be quite entertaining and with some more consistent art this series could really surprise readers. Infinity Heist #1 is definitely worth giving a shot, even just for a different look at how the wide impact of Infinity is affecting the Marvel U. Read Full Review

    The concept is far from new (see MODOK's 11), but it works just the same. I need more momentum, more surprises, more good one-liners, but it's an acceptable first issue. With only a marginal connection to Infinity this is a decent read for anyone interested in the seeing the fourth best gallery do what they do. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Sep 26, 2013

    The mission statement of the various non-Hickman “Infinity” miniseries seems to be the creation of irreverent tales caused by ‘Infinity', but not really related to ‘Infinity' in many specific ways. Unlike “Avengers Vs. X-Men”, you won't be using these tie-ins to get the bigger picture of smaller events seen or mentioned in the pages of Hickman's overall narrative. I guess that makes putting the ‘Infinity' banner on these an attempt at grabbing an audience. It's probably even more appropriate to say that the existence of “Hunt” and “Heist” are to be quick cash grabs. However, thanks to some clever art choices from Barrionuevo and an in-your-face approach to some very minor villains, “Heist” is one superfluous tie-in that you can have enough fun picking up on a whim.

    I certainly recommend Infinity Heist to fans of Superior Foes who just can't wait for its next issue for their fix of humorous henchman hijinks, but anyone else looking to see what the criminal class of the Marvel U might look like to the eye of writers in the vein of Elmore Leonard or Carl Hiassen, should really start with Superior Foes.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 26, 2013

    Plain and simple, "Infinity: Heist" #1 wants to be "The Superior Foes of Spider-Man" and "Ocean's Eleven," but with a purposeful Iron Man-flavored twist. It's a fun read, a great idea and comic book I would recommend to serve as a break from event heavy-handedness. Tieri doesn't try to make the villains anything more than villains and for that, this comic book is entertaining and enjoyable. Read Full Review
