    Although I give this issue a slightly above average rating, I believe future issues will not be as good. The anthology format is difficult to pull off. And based on Jenkins last series, he needs more writers working with him. There could be some good stories in this series. But judging the series as a whole? Id suggest reading this first before you buy. No one wants to get screwed over like with Civil War. Read Full Review

    This issue of WWH: Front Line is an immediate improvement on the previous series. This time around, Jenkins doesnt need to waste time setting the scene and introducing his cast and can jump straight into the main story. This series looks like it will be about more than just reacting to the destruction caused by the Hulk and the murder investigation will hopefully allow for a closer interaction between normal humans and the alien invaders. Heres to hoping that Jenkins can make this series work more smoothly than its predecessor. Read Full Review

    I promise to make Front Line its own series and move Jenkins from the B-squad to varsity. Got a catchy ring to it, right? Read Full Review

    While a huge event like World War Hulk will definitely please fans of widescreen-type action and splashy art, books like Front Line will ensure their believability by offering a different plate. And boy did this one taste good! Read Full Review

    Lets be clear: this series would not exist if there wasnt a big crossover event to tie it to, and that should tell you how satisfying it is as a story in its own right. Its quite possible that Jenkins & co will overcome the problems of this first issue and ultimately craft a better series than the last, but theres nothing here that makes me care enough to stick around and find out. If you read Civil War: Front Line, then youll know what to expect from this title. Unfortunately, for me that equates to once bitten, twice shy. Read Full Review
