    Hercules: The Wrath of the Heavens #1 is damn near perfection! I try to grade a little harder on opening issues to give the creative team room to grow but I just can't stop gushing when I think about this release! It's a quality yarn with high adventure that's bound to speak to a lot of fanboys and fangirls if given half a chance. In short: you just have to add this epic to your pull-list so go out and grab yourself a copy! Read Full Review

    HERCULES: WRATH OF THE HEAVENS #1 is a captivating futuristic adaptation of the most well-known Greek myth. The concept alone is gold, but it's reinforced by compelling writing. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Aug 21, 2017

    Adapted from the French graphic novel, the series is written by Jdmorvan with art by Looks and Olivier Thill. The story's an interesting, fresh take on the original, presenting a warts-and-all hero, and the art is simply stunning, with amazing character and environment designs. It's lush and powerfully rendered. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, Morvan pitches a sprawling sci-fi universe, akin to BioWares Mass Effect. He populates this with a sparse cast, yet still achieves the feel of something greater. But while the poem behind the comic may be epic too, theres something about this Hercules story that seems to have been lost in translation. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Lucas Sep 3, 2017

    There's a mystery to unravel here, why the gods are once again messing with Hercules, and how exactly everything from myth with translate into this sci-fi reimagining, but if I'm being honest, it's hard to care when about the only thing Hercules: The Wrath of the Heavens #1 gets right is spectacle. With a very hit or miss art style, cliched and flat dialogue, one-note characters, and a story too convoluted to follow, I can't say I'm looking forward to reading more of this comic.
