    Overall, Marvel Voices Heritage #1 is an excellent collection of stories that shines the spotlight on these underrepresented characters. The stories by the different creators are entertaining and enlightening. The art by the different creators is astounding. Altogether, a must buy even if you think you know these characters, you have never seen them like this before. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 12, 2022

    I like the fact that this story delves deeper into Rivers past and his connection with the creature that has been the only constant in his life since the death of his parents. The story shows the beginning of the cracks in their connection, but it also continues to keep the characters true allegiance vague, which works. Read Full Review

    A worthwhile set of stories even if you do not know these characters. The different artists match up to the writers and I would recommend this one even if you are a more casual Marvel fan. Read Full Review

    One of the most endearing things to come out of the Marvel's Voices anthologies is seeing the respective group of creators tell stories featuring a diverse group of superheroes. Creators such as Jim Terry, Nyla Innuksuk, Rebecca Roanhorse, and more educate readers on the perspective of indigenous characters. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Jason Flatt Jan 10, 2022

    Overall the comic just felt too brief and what was contained was not full enough. Which is a shame given all of the other ways it met or exceeded my expectations. There are a few good stories in here, but the full one-shot is unfortunately a bit lacking. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 10, 2022

    All told, Marvel's Voices: Heritage has its heart in the right place, but ends up falling short -- literally. Each story is shorter due to the anthology format, and the majority end up being too short to make an impact. There is the very good American Eagle tale, and the reprint story by Darcie Little Badger is good too, but this a thin read and a hard book to recommend. Read Full Review

    I have been picking up Marvel Voices since the Pride anthology and I love them. The Big Two rarely put our anthologies so Marvel consistently putting these out is a good change of pace and very important to culture. It is nice to enjoy shorter comic stories in between my ongoings and minis. Overall, this has been the briefest Marvel Voices I can remember and that is shame. I hope that the next time they create one of these for indigenous creators and characters there is more overall content. Although this anthology is very brief - the content that here is very strong. We get characters both old and new. The American Eagle story, to me, is the highlight of this book. This coverage of Native Americans and their culture being exploited harken more

    It really does feel like half of these were made in a rush with how the dialogue sounds like memes half the time. I swear the editors are too overworked/underpaid to catch stuff like that.

    Gotta be honest the only bits I actually liked was the American Eagle story and the Kickapoo Captain America preview. America Eagle wasn't perfect with bits of cringey dialogue but it captures that feeling of being overlooked, feeling burned out, and there's a little more nuance to the imagery on display. Meanwhile the Captain America preview shows a guy just enjoying life while trying to help anybody out. I'm just wondering if his full appearance is worth the 2 dollars to a company that celebrates filling out a checklist with no effort.

    This is probably the Marvel's Voices anthology that is most connected to the current ongoing series Marvel publishes, and that's kind of interesting. Unfortunately, what we get here is nothing special. I think this should have been longer or something, what we get ever has the time to really develop.

    I've always admired the mission of the Voices series. And I don't want to insult this issue's creators. But this is really the bottom of the barrel; this anthology is *rough*.

    There is one silver lining: The American Eagle strip is a gem. It has real heart and biting wit, and it's drawn satisfactorily.

    Yet more divisive rhetoric from Marvel, I'm honestly worried of the way some people are starting to think, it's so sad seeing people divided on such stupid grounds as ethnic background or race, it's just awful.

    Morte sickening race-baiting from Marvel.

    Your can guarantee that the one voice that will never be positively featured in this series is the white male.
