    Assassin's Creed Uprising #1 is an entertaining start to the series with its blend of action and character development. It starts off action-packed with Charlotte jumping out the window and that intensity never lets up throughout the issue. The Assassins come off as slightly generic but that's mostly due to the series just starting. However, the addition of the Templars gives the story more depth and I can't wait to see what's next.

    Assassins Creed has a devout following, and this is for good reason. Shadowy organizations battling for the fate of the world is makes for one compelling story. Fans of the series will probably enjoy the exploring the universe further. However, readers with only a cursory understanding of the story may want to steer clear until they have either played the game or read previous series. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, while the script mostly avoids becoming too cluttered, the same can't be said for the art. Jose Holder makes many odd framing choices that make it difficult to follow the flow of battle and leave key characters relegated to the background or obscured by shadow at awkward times.

    For fans of the comics and games, this will be an enjoyable read, leaving you awaiting the next entry to find out in what kind of situation could Assassins and Templars have actually joined teams? And for me, this series already has me doubting myself as I'm intrigued and drawn to the character of the Black Cross. Can I actually root for a Templar? Read Full Review

    This series is definitely written for those who have been reading the other Assassin's Creed comic titles while also playing the games. It merges characters from both Assassin and Templar comics into one interwoven story-arc. Theoretically, this is also the conclusion of the Phoenix Project storyline that permeated the game Assassin's Creed: Unity, meaning that it is best understood in the context of the current timeline of that game in particular.  Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Feb 3, 2017

    Overall I am not disappointed with the issue, but I found a lot of the character introduction fast paced and throwing too much information at the reader in such a short space of time. I feel like possibly these opening issues could possibly being 1.5 times the size of a standard issue to make sure they take the time to get all the character building to a reasonable pacing.Hopefully the next issue builds a good solid foundation for the rest of the series to move forward on.
