    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Aug 5, 2010

    This issue really sums up everything I love about this bookstrong characters, interesting plot twists, energetic artworkbut also suffers from some nagging issues that could easily be fixed, such as the slowmoving plot, weird eyes, etc. You can tell from page one that this series has the possibility of being one of Marvel's strongest titles, but its not quite there yet. Don't get me wrong this is a fantastic comic from a criminally underread title, but you can tell after reading it that it has the potentially to be something much greater. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Adam Chapman Aug 6, 2010

    This series is sorely underestimated and neglected, and it's a real shame. The series is much better than most people might expect, and is definitely worth taking a chance on. The characters are relative blank-slates compared to more established characters like Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, etc, and as a result there's a certain sensibility here that you won't get elsewhere, because there's more freedom for McKeever as a writer. Highly Recommended! Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Aug 6, 2010

    There is a tighter constructed book lying beneath the stuffing. McKeever should have begun the story with Benito's vignette. He then could have cut to Gray Gargoyle's daughter and Graviton then segued to Patsy and Firestar. From there, he could have redirected the tale to the final pages where Nomad and Arana go to meet Gravity and Firestar only to discover that their meeting is a trap. Let the battle begin. My point is that at least ten pages should have been cut and replaced with fisticuffs and I have an ugly feeling that the length was exacerbated just to merit a trade paperback. Read Full Review
