    We Have A Hulk - Nicola Austin Feb 4, 2018

    Overall Tales of Suspense #101 is a very enjoyable issue and a great continuation to the first part, deepening the mystery and intrigue of the Red Ledger. I can't wait to see more of the bickering pair as they're just so funny working together! That cliffhanger really has me baffled and slightly worried for one of them though… Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Jones Feb 5, 2018

    "Tales of Suspense" #101 is a fantastic second outing for the series only slightly marred by a predictable ending easily forgiven thanks to beautiful artwork and an amusing sense of humor. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Feb 2, 2018

    Tales of Suspense #101 is an entertaining and kinetic continuation to the Red Ledger story. The characters interact in charming and enjoyable ways, and the art by Foreman and Rosenberg brings the story to life in an excellent manner. While there are flaws, they are vastly overshadowed by the positives. This one definitely gets a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - PorkChop Edwards Feb 26, 2018

    A fun little adventure with spies, explosions, and witty one-liners will keep the reader entertained. The art, although slightly erratic, captures the vibe of what the story is telling. If youve been following this series, the ending will make you want the next issue, post-haste. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jrs1003 Jan 31, 2018

    Where this issue falls short is with the art. Stylistically, this book is all over the place. Sometimes, the characters are drawn in a simple but elegant way. Low detail works well, and Foreman pulls it off well. However, there are certain panels that have a weird amount of detail compared to the rest of the book. This is not to say that these panels are necessarily bad, but the art could use a single, consistent style. Though all of the art is solid, the disparity is noticeable, even to a person who cares much more about the writing of comics than the art. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Dwight Thomas Jr Feb 8, 2018

    This book to me seemed like a slower burn than the first issue, but it definitely picked up when the action got started. Though I predicted the assassin wasn't Black Widow, I was only partially correct. The banter between Clint and Bucky is pretty funny with Bucky going back and forth about his likes and dislikes for Hawkeye. You really start to see the differences between the two characters in response to the ever changing situation in their environment. Their personalities merge well. This is especially complimented with the mutual connection to Natasha they share. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Feb 1, 2018

    Rosenberg does pretty well on his end, and I always appreciate characters who come from a deep dive into Marvel continuity. Now I want to why they're back. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Feb 2, 2018

    The dynamic between the two lead characters is a lot of fun even if Rosenberg does play Bucky a little more straight and rigid in order to make the jokes land a little easier. But the two are still just chasing down this would-be Black Widow so he issue really lives and dies with your enjoyment of the interplay between the erstwhile Thunderbolts. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 5, 2018

    The ex-boyfriends schtick feels unintentionally awkward and though the pairing is nice, inconsistent art negatively impacts the effectiveness of this story. Read Full Review
