    The issue ends with Night Thrasher disbanding the team, mirroring previous New Warrior teams, which have broken up 2 or 3 times before. I really thought they were going to reveal who Night Thrasher was with his big speech at the end along with the disbanding, but it looks like they will be holding off for another issue or two.

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Oct 19, 2007

    Paco Medina is a very energetic artist to say the least. Action sequences burst from the page right into your eye sockets. These scenes are chaotic, their dangerous, their crazy, their awesome! This energy transfers from scene to scene, allowing for the less action-orientated scenes to not cause a drop in flow and feel. Sometimes, with comics being a relatively quick-moving medium, transfers from scene to scene can feel like walking into a brick wall when it comes to consistency in feel. Medina eases these transfers. His drawings are still fairly disproportionate when concerning the female form, though. The last couple of issues has scene clever use of objects obstructing his tendency to draw women in unrealistic ways, but this issue sees the return of this. It is not a welcome return. Besides this, Medinas art is very easy to enjoy and mixes with the script very well. Read Full Review

    As aways, Paco Medina proves to be quite the breakout hit with this series. This issue in particular allows Medina to cut loose and render some big, old-fashioned superhero brawls. Grevioux's story may be far from perfect, but at times Medina can almost make you forget the flaws amidst all the pretty scenery. Read Full Review
