    This premise continues to be a hit. Is it because it has more freedom as an "Elseworld" story? Maybe. MAESTRO: WAR AND PAX certainly has the flexibility to live outside any constraints happening in the current Marvel Landscape. However, it's also successful because David is thoroughly developing his old FUTURE IMPERFECT story in an entertaining way that's cluttered with action, twist, turns, and meaningful characters to longtime Hulk fans.

    Maestro: War & Pax #1 is a solid, sometimes even frightening comic about the dangers of authoritarianism. To call it timely might be an understatement. Don't miss out! Read Full Review

    A one-two punch of humor and action, Maestro: War and Pax #1 is pure fun from cover to cover. Unfortunately, a few missteps prevent this issue from becoming a true knockout. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 18, 2021

    Maestro: War and Pax #1 is an intense first issue. David takes a character that he created almost 30 years ago and writes a great continuation to his story. Featuring epic fights and expanding a world with unexpected new additions, this alternate universe set on a world full of death has shown that it still has life in it. The characters that have been drafted into the story will provide nothing but exciting trouble for Maestro's mission. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 20, 2021

    Javier Pina does a great job with the art. The story is geared more towards action and Pina does a great job bringing that energy to the visuals. The characters look good and there are some great details, but the art really comes alive with the last page reveal. Read Full Review
