    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 23, 2020

    Juggernaut #1 is a fantastic debut of a comic. It adds a lot of depth and emotion to a character who has at times lacked it. There's a fantastic mystery here of a man who's at his lowest and is attempting to get his life in order. In many ways it's a story of addiction, failure, temptation, and possible redemption. It's aspects we can all relate to and helps take this classic villain and a much welcome direction. Read Full Review

    Fabien Nicieza and Ron Garney give Juggernaut fans, and those looking to become one, a street-level book that provides us with a peek at the man behind the Unstoppable.” It may not be what you expected, but it's better because of that. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 23, 2020

    Juggernaut #1 is a great look at a character that really doesn't get enough spotlight. It's an entirely different look at him as well, one that most readers have never seen before. The series looks like it's going to be an in-depth look into Juggernaut's personality, and that can be a good thing if Nicieza can keep up the quality of the issue. Garney's artworks very well for this book as well- his Juggernaut is a huge imposing presence, and it will be great to see what he does in this book" especially if Juggernaut and the Hulk clash next issue.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Sep 23, 2020

    I was not expecting much out of Juggernaut #1, besides some splendid Ron Garney art. Well, we get that and an actually pretty good start to an interesting story, as well. Cain Marko is not a character I think of much besides it's pretty cool when he shows up to a fight, but in Juggernaut #1 finds him maybe turning into something a bit different and I find myself invested in his personal journey.

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 22, 2020

    Juggernaut #1 is a good first issue in a new solo miniseries. Typically, these types of comics have a cheap hook or an easy way to gain the trust of the reader, but here you'll be swayed by the interesting character dynamic, a Juggernaut with secrets to tell, and an art style that has a great atmosphere. Garney doesn't have your typical clean superhero design aesthetic, but something that imbues a sense of deep calm or contemplation. That works well for this book. Juggernaut mixes fantasy and superpowers in an unstoppable package. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 22, 2020

    When all is said and done The Juggernaut #1 starts its the story off on the right foot. It gives an often one-dimensional character a greater depth than is generally shone. I hope Nicieza and the company can continue to build the narrative from here. Read Full Review

    A gentle, low key take on the Juggernaut signifies a potentially interesting new story for the character. This is a solid starting point. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 23, 2020

    They didn't lie, this was a new bold new direction for the Juggernaut. So far I am sold for a story which takes all the right steps to redefine the Juggernaut in a world which tends to see him as a force for destruction. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Gabriel Hernandez Sep 22, 2020

    JUGGERNAUT #1 is a kinder, gentler, and frankly, more likable exploration of a character that's evolved beyond his origins. The writing is well done and the art greatly compliments the story. Strongly recommended. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Oct 3, 2020

    There isn't a ton to rock you back on your heels in this book, to befair. It's half-flashback and half-set up, with a final page revealthat has some real potential. But it's a decent start to a book thatcould really do some interesting things with a character who hasn'treally felt relevant for a while. Read Full Review
