    A slower plot progression, to be sure, but if you're reading this comic, you're likely wanting a ton of nostalgia, which Warlock: Rebirth delivers big time. From the classic Lim pencils to the classic look and feel of each of the characters, this has what you need to scratch the Adam Warlock itch. Time will tell how impactful this story is on the grander Marvel cosmic tales, but as it stands, it's a fun, nostalgic, and enjoyable return for Adam Warlock. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Apr 20, 2023

    At the very least, Marz and Lim turn in some quality work here, with a script that moves briskly and art that feels retro enough without coming across as dated. Having Lim on art duties particularly helps the story feel as though it was actually published in the era its set in, which is sometimes the risk of doing any sort of throwback project amid more modern sensibilities. (See: the most recent Alien films looking incredibly slick and high-tech despite them taking place before the original film.) I dont know if Warlock: Rebirth #1 will turn any new readers into superfans of the character, but its not a bad place to start. Read Full Review

    Overall, Warlock: Rebirth #1 is a drag of a story. The story by Marz is promising at best. The art by the creative team is serviceable. Altogether, a story that should get fans hyped for his big screen debut, but falls flat. Read Full Review

    There could be some interesting directions for this concept, but the first issue of Warlock: Rebirth shows no signs of pursuing any of them. While it's easy on the eyes, the issue is about 17 pages of nothing followed by a setup that doesn't do a whole lot to hook you. Read Full Review

    The title character has barely any presence, and the plot is thin, but as an introductory issue it was fun and grabs your attention. Ron Lim’s art is the highlight and what most are here for, though, and it’s a nostalgic return to an earlier era.

    I'm reacting the way I usually do to a solid retro comic: Grooving a little on the art, wincing a little at the writing. The pace is slow and the prose is clunky. But it's a lot of fun to look at and the core premise--which successfully hooked me--is introduced with twisty skill.

    I was really looking forward to this and it just wasn't as good as I'd hoped it would be. It's not terrible but my nostalgia wanted a little bit more than what I got here. The art is the big draw for me and it delivered in spades but the story is thin and feels like an Infinity Crusade rip off. Eve Warlock is just an easy go to if you know what I mean and reminds me of The Goddess from IC. Also, if some powerful dude you never met just shows up and claims to be the son of a great hero would the people responsible for guarding some of the most powerful weapons in the universe just start telling him all their secrets and take him into your leaders stronghold? Kinda dumb right? Overall I wouldn't recommend this unless you really have a b more
