    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 27, 2019

    Marvel Rising kicks off (for a second time) with an enjoyable demonstration of storytelling prowess in both words and art. Although it's aimed at younger readers, thanks to the creators' hard work, this issue delivers plenty of fun for all ages. It's a solid read by itself, but it also performs that highest duty of all good #1s: It builds anticipation for future issues. This is going to be a series worth following. Read Full Review

    A good first issue that can be enjoyed by all ages. The strongest elements are great like Ms. Marvel's internal monologue and a good mix of attention on each hero. Read Full Review

    A fine, fun issue and a good start to a mini-series. "Marvel Rising" is a good introduction to the characters and their place in the Marvel universe, with plenty of solid action and character work. Read Full Review

    As part of a bigger multimedia push and considering an intended younger audience, Marvel Rising #1 is a fun little start to an imaginative and upbeat tale. However, if you're older than a teenager, there's not much here for you. Read Full Review

    I'd feel comfortable handing this to a new young reader to get them interested, but I wouldn't recommend it to an older reader. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Jamie Lovett Mar 27, 2019

    Unfortunately, the simplified release program may be the most memorable thing about Marvel Rising #1 as the content of the issue uses an odd setup to present some of Marvel's most exciting new heroes at their most generic. Read Full Review
