    MacKay crafts a well-organized tale that will keep readers at the edge of their seats. Timeless #1 infuses some high-octane action, dangles a few carrots that will gradually be revealed as 2023 unravels, and promotes an extremely well-balanced story that should provide some much-needed hope for Marvel Comics in 2023.

    MacKay, Land, Zircher, and Larroca deliver a tale through the ages, as Kang comes face to face with a new threat, or is it? We get lots of clues dropped as to who this is, and Ive got my own thoughts, but thats not what matters. Its the hints that are dropped that are the things we should pay attention to, as well as that last panel. Either way, there seems to be a lot of fun stuff coming our way next year. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Dec 31, 2022

    Timeless (2022) #1puts Kang the Conquerer through the wringer while also setting up Marvel's wave of stories for 2023. It's only fitting that one of the last comics of the year focuses on a time travel odyssey, and the last page teases that Kang's journey is far from over. Honestly, I wouldn't be mad if this is a recurring tradition with Marvel. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 28, 2022

    Once again, Timeless is an interesting vehicle to hint at Marvel's 2023 stories while putting Kang through the paces. Due to the "Missing Moment" being a glorified McGuffin with little explanation and Kang mostly running from his enemies, this issue is essentially an extended preview that sets up Myddin's team more than anything else. Characters don't grow or change, but we do get tons new stuff to chew on as we await 2023 stories. Read Full Review

    While the teases are fine and dandy, MacKay and a team of artists do a splendid job at intertwining an Arthurian tale with the Marvel Universe with the end result being an absolute delight. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 28, 2022

    Timeless #1 is an interesting issue. It feels like an improvement on last year's version but in the end, how things play out from here will really be how it's all judged. Is this the start of something greater or just a fancy catalogue of what's to come? Only time will tell. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Dec 28, 2022

    Much like last years Timeless, writer Jed MacKay makes the best of a tough assignment by delivering an action-packed romp that focuses more on the immediate story rather than just allude to whatever is coming from Marvel in 2023. Those, instead, are depicted as visual asides while Kang soliloquizes his plight to the reader; its an elegant solution to serve both masters while not distracting from the meat of the story. There are definitely some intriguing developments to be seen in them Beast appearing to lead a sort of army, a Wolverine-y Ghost Rider, the Pet Avengers(!!!), a belt with a stylized 777 on it but it does beg the question if any of them will actually be paid off within the next year.
