    In the end, I care about and am more interested in the character now than before I started reading. That's a key first step. I could moan all day about this being a blatant attempt to catch lightening in a bottle again (a la Nova), but I could care less as long as it's executed well, which it was. Here's hoping the big reveal next issue keeps the momentum going. Read Full Review

    For readers looking to get in on the ground floor of a space-faring adventure, this is a nice investment and enjoyable read, just as it would be for fans of the character. While I would not define this book as the best thing Marvel put out this week (it was a monstrous week for them) it is certainly an angst-filled adventure that will have repercussions for months to come.

    Cebulski does a great job of writing Chris Powell’s character and I felt myself really invested in Chris’ character by the end of the issue. This other Darkhawk is definitely intriguing, although Tolibao’s art is not very good
