    This comic is way more funny than it deserves to be, and is definitely one of Marvel's quirkiest and best books. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Sep 7, 2013

    There may be some very minor weakness in the art and colorization in some places, yet this issue delivers plenty of humor, a rather interesting view on the criminal world of the Marvel universe and a balance between absurdity and realism that is really smart, all thanks to Nick Spencer, Steve Lieber and Rachelle Rosenberg.

    That aside, this is a series that I really, really hope sticks around. The dialogue is clever and fun, and the story is great. There are only three issues in the series so far, so now is your chance to catch up on it before you dig yourself into a hole and miss out on one of the more surprisingly entertaining new titles this year.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 7, 2013

    Boomerang continues to be a very fun protagonist, and Spencer has a blast inside his head this issue as he deals with the overly helpful Mach VII. I was a little disappointed at how much of a chump Mach VII seemed to be, but I suppose that's his role for this story, so that's fine. But any moron could have seen through Fred's act. At least Fred remains fun to read. I also didn't like how the Sinister Six were kicking him out in only the third issue. That seems a little too soon to have Fred off the team. But I'm sure Spencer is going somewhere with this. Superior Foes continues to be everything I hoped it would be. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Sep 9, 2013

    Overall, it's a charming, matter-of-fact look at life on the fringes of super-powered life, and exactly the kind of book that deserves a bigger audience. For readers that love the tone of "Hawkeye," this is one of the few places to find anything even remotely similar, and that alone makes it worth a try. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Sep 4, 2013

    Exposition it may be, but it is HIGHLY entertaining exposition and this is, ultimately, a book where not a lot happens, so it isnt like we missed out on some giant, cosmic battle for the fate of the world. Still, the pacing still suffers to some extent and Id have liked to see more of Abner and Fred interacting in the present. The book is still great enough to be easily recommendable to anyone looking to brighten the mood of the often grim and grimy comics that regularly line the shelf. This ones close to the street, but its got a lot of heart and a whole lotta laughs and, as I said last week, its always a treat to see how the other side of the law lives in a superhero universe.

    Player Effort - Roger De Leon Nov 3, 2013

    My primary concern is that the risks that are being taken are occurring to soon in this story's life cycle. I feel like the team may have tried to fix something that wasn't broken, which concerns me. I like the willingness to take risks as this fearlessness is key to making your book thrive. I commend the effort, but I don't think this was the best choice. Hopefully we will see some a recapturing of the throne in future issues. Read Full Review
