    Many new characters either make it or they don’t and Mosaic is shaping up to be a solid character and series. I highly recommend picking this one up. There is a lot of new characters and series coming out from Marvel and this is definitely one that shouldn’t be missed. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Marshall Bruno Oct 13, 2016

    This character and story is one that I've been excited to check out since it was announced, but I also worry about it. Could a character like this ever be part of an ensemble? Would he be able to affect or hop into other characters? Does he have a body of his own, or does he only exist within other people? There are a lot of questions that I think about when thinking about this character. I want it to do well, and I want it to go on for a while, but it will definitely take a few issues to find out whether this is a home run for Marvel, or just a fun story to read for a few issues.

    I'm not going to go all in on the Inhumans, but I'm definitely interested in seeing more of Mosaic. This character has potential, albeit I'm not sure what the true nature of the potential may be, as Mosaic could easily be self-centered as he could be heroic. It's up to Thorne, Randolph, Lopez, and Sabino to take us there. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Oct 13, 2016

    We're sold on this character, but not just yet sold on the fact he has his own solo series, especially in a world of team comics. There are plenty of interesting characters in the Marvel universe, and we can't quite say why Mosaic deserves his own just yet. It's early, but promising, days. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 11, 2016

    Though it takes some time to find its groove, Mosaic #1 does serve as a strong debut for Marvel's newest Inhuman character. Thorne and Randolph make a great team as they find interesting ways to depict their disembodied hero and explore the many thorny questions his powers raise. This is a series with plenty of potential to stand out in the new Marvel NOW lineup. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 15, 2016

    Mosaic starts strong, but doesn't blow any minds with the first issue. It's got great art and a good enough premise and hero, but ‘good enough' isn't going to lead to sales and a continued existence. Let's hope Thorne and Randolph up their game as we go forward. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 11, 2016

    When Marvel first announced Mosaic would be getting a standalone series, I think a healthy dose of skepticism was warranted - without the clear-cut personality of a Squirrel Girl, Wolverine, or Deadpool, it’s tough to carry your own solo series in today’s team book world, especially when the reception to the Inhumans franchise has been fairly tepid, despite Marvel’s herculean efforts to the contrary. And I will say that I’m not sure if this book has quite earned a pass from that yet - while the art on this book looks sensational, Mosaic as a character doesn’t quite come together yet, never quite coalescing as a solid concept. Morris Sackett might be a wizard on the basketball court, but he’s got a lot of ground to cover before he can save the day as Marvel’s next would-be superstar. Read Full Review

    Nerdist - Blair Marnell Oct 13, 2016

    One major plus in Mosaic's favor is that it has extra pages of story, which went a long way towards making it a more satisfying read. Thorne and Randolph also displayed a few touches of visual humor which played well on the page. Whether Mosaic has what it takes become Marvel's next big thing remains to be seen, but this is a solid start. This issue only scratched at the surface of what Morris can do, and we're excited to see if he can live up to his potential. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 15, 2016

    That writer Geoffrey Thorne's concept started to win me over by the end of the issue is a testament to the ideas he explores here, because my God, I have no interest in the world of sports. Read Full Review

    It's not bad but it's not nearly different enough to stay with. Read Full Review
