Someone is gift-wrapping super-villains for the police. Someone is defacing Superhuman Registration posters. Someone is raising eyebrows all around town -- from City Hall to Tony Stark's war chamber. And the only clue to their identity? Two spray-painted letters: N.W.

    The last page of this issue is probably the biggest shocker of them all. It really is what is going to make me pick up the next issue, and suffice to say my fellow New Warriors fans will be very happy. Books like these make me glad to be a comics fan because it provides a solid story, very solid art and characters that all have significant history in the Marvel Universe. The bigger matter here, however, is this is a book you can give to a new comics reader, and they wont be bogged down by details. In an age where every book seems to be driven towards the next big event, its a welcome change. Read Full Review

    Seeing Paco Medinas art again is great, it is reminiscent of his run with the New X-Men, he knows how to draw younger characters with life and vigour. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lot of art put onto panels after the fact and it is very obvious. There is a Marvel sign that sticks out, as well as some graffiti art and, worst of all, some text on a t-shirt. These additions after the fact do not enhance the art but rather become distractive and take away from the whole panel. Im also not a fan of how Medina seems to be putting Sofia into many poses that make come off as being a big tease and flirt rather than an actual character. Shes constantly bending over tables and overly touchy with men that it takes away from her character. Other than that, I enjoy Medinas art and I hope he stays for a while. Read Full Review

    New Warriors is a great change of pace from the old incarnations of the team. Grevioux has crafted a wonderful story, tying in both Civil War and House of M to give the book a good cast and unique story. Sadly, the art, while good, does not really fit the mood presented in the book. The issue itself feels like its missing a few more pages, decompressed when it should be jam packed with story and action and suspense. Ill admit I'm interested in seeing where things go from here.

    I was entertained by this issue, but I admit theres very little about the New Warriors in here. What we do get is a fine story in its own right. Theres potential for a good series. I hope to see it realized next issue. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, though, these last two points arent really enough to save The New Warriors from being unremarkable. Unless youre a big The New Warriors fan, this issue will most likely leave you with the feeling that youve read this book before. Read Full Review

    For all my griping, it is a fun and light hearted story, which can be nice to read sometimes. Maybe I was disappointed because I was expecting similarities to The Accused story in Front Line, and this is far from that. Since it is about a group of heroes without any special powers, I might give the next issue a look, and its not as if there is nothing redeeming about the book. But I wont buy this first issue and the title is going to be too far down my wish list of comics for me to ever likely buy. Read Full Review
