    Having read a bunch of War of the Realms tie-ins, I gotta say this might be my favorite. The action is great, the art (by Gang Hyuk Lim, Federico Blee, and Clayton Cowles) is beautiful, and theres some really fantastic character work that helps you identify with the characters, even if you (like myself) dont share their common Asian heritage. One scene at the beginning does a great job of exploring Asian diaspora and how different each culture may be talking about the same thing but perceive it differently based on their ethnicity. Lim deserves a special shoutout for his work here; hes been on my list of names to watch since I first encountered him on Infinity Countdown: Nighthawk last year, so Im glad to see more of him.

    While I can't speak for how well New Agents of Atlas ties in with the grander myth arc, I can safely it works beautifully as both a stand-alone story and an introduction to the pan-Asian and Asian American heroes of the Marvel Universe. This creative team has set the stage for a lot of wonderful things to come. Read Full Review

    It's a fast-paced and high-energy start to the series - and hopefully it'll continue to thrive after the "War" is over. A great start! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 8, 2019

    I liked how a big event series is being used to introduce a whole new batch of characters. Greg Pak has always kept character as a priority for his books and it's fun to see how he's exploring the team book here. Read Full Review

    A decent issue that, although it takes a step back, still manages to entertain. Read Full Review

    Greg Pak kicks off the New Agents of Atlas with a bang and while it was action packed, I wish there was a little more time to introduce the characters in a more impactful way. Im still not sure how necessary this story will be to the overall War of the Realms Event, but the main draw here is the cool team members"I just want need more about them. Overall, I am intrigued enough to pick up the next issue and hope thats what I get. Read Full Review

    It feels like Pak is unsure of the Agents of Atlas team and uses the popular characters from the Champions to garner attention. Read Full Review
