    Overall, a fun issue that serves as a nice stand-alone issue and jumping-on point, that still ties into the larger storyline without seeming too daunting to a potential new reader. Read Full Review

    The title's overabundance of characters can sometimes feel like an embarrassment of riches, but this time, it feels more like an obstacle to coherence. Bunn does an impressive job juggling so many faces, old and new, but the story might be better served by slimming down the cast to more manageable proportions. Simply put, it's hard to invest in characters when keeping track of them requires a spreadsheet. Read Full Review

    Not a terrible issue, but overall a bit underwhelming. My love/hate relationship with this book will continue for another month, it seems. Read Full Review

    There is nothing special or interesting about Fearless Defenders, I'm sorry to say. It's well-written and very well-drawn, but there isn't anything else I feel I can latch onto in order to keep reading. The characters are fine, but none of them are among my personal favorites. The all-female cast is a good move, but not much is done with it. I've never cared for the Brood and there's nothing overly interesting about this issue's adventure. This is just a generic superhero adventure starring a few C and D-list superheroes who just happen to be ladies. If I was a Misty Knight or Valkyrie fan, I'm sure I'd be loving it. But I'm just not connecting with Fearless Defenders, and considering how broke I am these days, that is not good for the series. Read Full Review
