    At only four issues in, this series is still young. If you're not on board now, I promise you: you're missing out on the revolution. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Jan 29, 2011

    As I said in my recent review of Mark Millar and Leinil Yu's Superior, it's very pleasing to see top writers and artists doing some of their best work in creator-owned comics these days. At a time when many readers are beginning to move away from the repetitive and often hollow antics of the Big Two, it's nice to know that there's a viable alternative that allows the likes of Bendis and Maleev to show just how enjoyably their talents can be applied outside of continuity-driven superhero comics. Scarlet is a book with a very provocative concept, great writing, and beautiful art. Let's hope it also has a long future ahead of it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Benjamin Bailey Jan 24, 2011

    Overall, "Scarlet" is a very different kind of comic than Bendis and Maleev's previous work together. Ostensibly it might be seen as a comic with a "message" (though its anti-establishment"ness is a bit too cartoonish to be taken seriously), these are two creators who excel at depicting the most human aspects of drama. Regardless of where her story takes her, Scarlet will always be an interesting character to watch. Read Full Review

    It's well crafted but distasteful, so I'll pass on the rest of this series and look forward to this team's next project, whatever it may be. Read Full Review
