    In a year highlighted by shockingly mediocre storylines, I feel like Marvel may have finally struck gold with Realm of Kings, and I'm really excited to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 18, 2009

    All of this coupled with an intriguing cliffhanger ending means Realm of Kings is off to a solid start. Unfortunately, this prologue issue just doesn't do a very good job of laying out the nature of Realm of Kings or what readers should expect from the various tie-ins. At this point I'm not even sure this story wouldn't be better served as an arc in Nova or Guardians. DnA have plenty of potential to mine. Let's hope they don't wait long to offer a clearer picture of where they're headed. Read Full Review

Right now, though, it feels like we're just getting the tip of the iceberg over that sunken world. Let's see what we've got next. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 20, 2009

    This issue is a fun read that sets forth some interesting premises. Fans of Marvel's cosmic books and the brilliant work that DnA has done on them may be a bit shocked to find that this is very different than anything they may be used to. The execution isn't as strong as I expected, but the concept is interesting. I can't say that I'm not disappointed by the quality, but I'm digging the ideas. Read Full Review

    Not bad but it lacks some of the momentum of the earlier minis. Here's hoping it gets stronger in the coming months. Read Full Review
