    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Apr 14, 2003

    A fairly promising debut issue for this new monthly series, as Sean McKeever has managed to introduce an engaging lead character, and nicely defines his world. Now yes there are familiar elements in these pages, as Juston is the typical comic book teen, who is ostracized by most of the people at his school, and he struggles with the standard plot elements such as school bullies, and the shyness factor. However, the writing does some nice work detailing Juston as a fairly well adjusted teen, with several admirable qualities, and the lower income, working class environment that he moves about within is nicely realized. This issue also does some fairly nice work setting up the whole Sentinel element, as there is a nice degree of impending danger established on the pages when the focus in on the robot. The supporting cast is also fairly solid, though the angry young teen is a little too obvious a character type, and the sick younger brother is a little too sweet. Read Full Review
