    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 20, 2017

    A fantastic debut and one of Marvel's strongest in their “Marvel Legacy” line, the first issue kicks off a mystery that feels like a hard boiled spy action thriller. I'm strapped in for the ride because as a start this promises a good one. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 19, 2017

    Tales of Suspense #100 gave me exactly what I hoped for. Clint and Bucky meeting up, being dicks to one another, and ultimately bonding over searching for the Black Widow. Matthew Rosenberg delivers well on this one, and Travel Foreman and Rachelle Rosenberg brings some great artwork. I highly recommend this one. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 20, 2017

    This is a good issue largely because Rosenberg writes a very strong Hawkeye. His voice, actions, and captions are all solid and make for an entertaining read. A must read for Hawkeye fans! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 22, 2017

    Tales of Suspense #100 is a great start to a new series. (Yeah, I know the numbering. Let's just say story arc.) Matthew Rosenberg does a good job of catching the reader up on the events of Secret Empire while getting his story set up and going. I do think this issue would have benefitedfrom being oversized, as everything could have been fleshed out a little better, but it is a good start for the series and easy enough for new readers to jump into. While I do have hang-ups on some of the facial expressions, the art overall is very well done. The action sequences have great movement to them and really have an impact, while the backgrounds fill out the world greatly and the coloring is absolutely beautiful. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Dwight Jan 22, 2018

    As I mentioned above it's a pretty good start but not earth shattering at all. We'll see where they take this story but it's only a limited series of 5 issues. I expect the second issue to really hit the ground running since they only have a few more to tell the story. I'd still check this out especially if you're a fan of Hawkeye. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Dec 21, 2017

    All in all though, I enjoyed the issue and enjoyed the premise of this new take of Tales of Suspense. Rosenberg does a great job at summarizing the events of Secret Empire that have led to this point as well introducing each character in a fun, aka filled way. My favorite part? The letters page at the end. Make sure not to miss it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Dec 26, 2017

    Tales of Suspense works really well as an espionage-comedy, and will only improve as the team gets more and more in sync. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Dec 23, 2017

    Lastly, the point of that face mask Bucky wore in The Winter Soldier movie was to hide his identity from the audience and Steve, what purpose does it serve here? It's irritating when our comic book iterations reflect their big screen counterparts for no reason. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 26, 2017

    Tales of Suspense #100 had two routes that it could've taken. Unfortunately Matthew Rosenberg decided to take the least interesting route. Things are made even worse by having Clint Barton and his failures to execute his plans be the main driving force around the first chapter of the story. This all ends up making the potential of Natasha Romanoff's possible survival and status quo of working from from the shadows a complete missed opportunity. Read Full Review
