    Proclamation: Will give Afterburn one more go with the hope that it develops enough plot and character depth so as not to make me regret my choice. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Daniel Yanez Feb 4, 2008

    Another question that bothers me is why the mutants don't sell their treasures to the surviving side of the Earth and make a living out of it. Beats me! The shark scene was pretty ingenious, but the rest of the book feels a bit “off”. I hope that this is a slow start for the series and with issue #2 all the “off-iness” will be addressed. This title has a lot of potential. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jan 11, 2008

    There's an Indiana Jones riff to the race in the Louvre, complete with an evil counterpart reminiscent of the Belloq character from Raiders in the Lost Ark. Unfortunately, the heroes, like the bad guys, come off as profiteers, vultures feeding off society's corpse. It doesn't make for the most palatable protagonists. Again, the problem stems in part from the scant information we're given about the characters' personalities and background. Since we know nothing of these characters' ethics and motivations, they come off as money-hungry thrillseekers. There's also a frat-boy tone to their exchanges. With more depth, the adventure and the premise would have been more appealing. Read Full Review

    So, not recommended. The series is only four issues long, and with the same writers and artists, I dont see any room for improvement. Sorry, guys, better luck next time. Read Full Review
