    Comics Bulletin - Dan Hill/Dave Wallace Dec 30, 2008

    I never read Sleeper, so seeing Brubaker and Phillips collaborate on a more traditional style of comic is a novelty for me -- but on the strength of this issue alone I'm tempted to go back and check that past collaboration out. If you're a fan of Ed Brubaker's superhero work in the Marvel Universe, you should check this out -- and if you liked Criminal, you're bound to enjoy it. Incognito provides a compelling blend of pulp superhero conventions, gritty hard-boiled dialogue, and complex, intriguing characterisation, and I look forward to seeing where it goes from here.

    IGN - Daniel Crown Jan 3, 2009

    From a marketing standpoint, Incognito presents a fairly interesting trial. The truth is, fair or not, Brubaker's basic design for this title will probably appeal to a much wider audience than Criminal as it dips into more popular waters. Yet the book reads, and feels very much the same. He never alienates the themes that make his other Icon book one of the most consistently great reads on the shelf. It will be interesting to see how new readers respond. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Jan 5, 2009

    Incognito #1 is an interesting enough start to what should be a fun, dark series. While not quite as exciting as I had hoped, the issue contains enough hooks to keep me around for the near future. Besides, I expect things to improve quite a bit once Brubaker reveals more of Zack Overkill's world and the characters that inhabit it. Read Full Review
