    This is a fun story that should help hold over fans until the new adventures of #12 start up again. Read Full Review

    Doctor Who: Supremacy of the Cybermen #1 gets this latest crossover off to a good start, leaving plenty of reasons to return for the second instalment. Working the four Doctors into the narrative in a fun and engaging manner, the creative team built upon this concept fantastically. As for those looking for another stellar team-up, you'll unfortunately have to wait at least another two weeks for that. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jul 7, 2016

    The use of multiple artists allows for a more varied visual look that works due to the split in locations of the Doctors. Pre-historic Earth with the Eleventh Doctor is full of vibrant and rich colors that delivers just as well as say, the time spent in the 24th Century. Unfortunately, though when it comes to characterization, some Doctors arent quite brought to life as well as others, and the portrayal of the Tenth Doctor falls short of the mark. But thats only a minor problem, because for the most part everything is pretty great across the board with the potential to just get better and better as the event goes on. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jul 5, 2016

    With a lightning-fast pace, an epic scope, and a script that takes full advantage of what makes each modern Doctor fun and compelling, Doctor Who: Supremacy of the Cybermen #1 is the series in its purest and most entertaining form. While I would have loved even the tiniest hint of the Ninth Doctor taking shots at his more foppish regenerations or possibly even finding a kindred spirit in the rough and tumble Twelfth Doctor, the creative team have only just begun, starting this event off with a metric ton of promise. As Titan Comics prepares for its latest Doctor Who Comics Day, they have another crowd-pleaser on their hands with this latest multi-Doctor event series. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Jul 7, 2016

    Although the art is inconsistent, the overall comic is quite fun. It's fast-paced and gives you enough information to get a handle on the situation, and the writers possess a good grasp on each Doctor. I would have liked it if the Doctors had met in this issue, but that may be me wanting my dessert before my supper. Overall, the 2016 Doctor Who event is off to a good start. Dr. Josh gives this a" Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Alex Moreland Sep 5, 2017

    If the idea of a Time Lord/Cyberman team up with appearances from every Doctor and some popular classic monsters sounds like a great read to you, then this is absolutely worth your time. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Jul 8, 2016

    Overall, this is a bit of a disappointing start to the event. It fails to capture the same excitement and circumstance that last year's had while also missing the key ingredients of making a fun multi-doctor story. I'm willing to forgive a few things given that this is only an introductory issue, though if things don'tget upgraded in the second issue, it may be time to delete this series. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Michael Shaw Jul 5, 2016

    Overall, Doctor Who: Supremacy of the Cybermen #1 wasn't bad, but it isn't going to blow anyone out of the water either. The art has some glaring problems, namely some jarring facial expressions, but also presents us with beautiful pieces and landscapes. The story could go either way, mediocre and bland Doctor Who Time Conspiracy number 342, or it could tell a compelling narrative while making an old foe truly threatening again. I would be more inclined to wait for the event to be over, and read it as a trade, than to follow it issue by issue. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Rick Jul 13, 2016

    Cybermen has its moments. The Sisterhood of Karn has a Lovecraft-lite feel, like something out of The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath. Some of the "reveal" pages were admittedly cool. And yes, it is a fun read; I'm really hard on the comics I read to begin with, and feel like I should cut Dr. Who a little slack for its inherent "Who-ness". At the same time, I don't have a lot of tolerance for sloppiness in comics, even if they are franchise tie-ins. Read Full Review
