    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jan 20, 2019

    I think this book is a must-read. Chip Zdarsky fills this one issue with more action, character moments and story than a lot of full trades. I cant wait to read the next issue because I havent been this excited about a single issue in a long time! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Brian Renninger Jan 16, 2019

    Great start to what will hopefully be a great series of books, and coming off of his hugely successful Spider-Man run, it looks like Zdarsky is the right guy for the job. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Vasil Duka Jan 17, 2019

    An excellent start to a promising new series. It's a little lacking in presentation as far as some of the characters go, though it ultimately isn't a detriment to the story. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - David DeCorte Jan 16, 2019

    Despite being a team-up book, Namor's narrative occupies the bulk of INVADERS #1. I appreciated the subtler points of the story more on the second read-through, such as the theme of war and how it affects Namor. This is a promising first chapter in a new ongoing story. Read Full Review

    411Mania - John Pumpernickel Jan 24, 2019

    Invaders is one of those books that could overlooked on the crowded stands but I'd give it a good recommendation as being a solid book. Good writing and art with a good look at a character that's destined for bigger things. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 20, 2019

    Invaders #1 successfully sets the stage for what the first major story arc of this series will be. Chip Zdarsky catches us up with where all the original Invaders are in the present and how important their history with each other from WWII is. Namor taking a key role provided the hook needed as Zdarsky positions him as the protagonist to follow while simultaneously being presented in a villainous role. If your a fan of Captain America, Winter Soldier, Namor or the original Human Torch I recommend checking out Invaders #1. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Joe Grunenwald Jan 16, 2019

    Invaders #1 is a strong first issue for the series. The team has a compelling, character-driven reason for coming together, made all the more urgent by the fantastic twist at the end of the issue. The creative team is firing on all cylinders right out of the gate, and I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review
