    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden Jan 24, 2020

    Doctor Tomorrow is the kind of opening salvo you want for any book, with just enough intrigue and mystery to keep you on the hook mixed with the kind of fun sci-fi and relatability that we read comics for in the first place. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - John Spillman Feb 15, 2020

    Overall, Doctor Tomorrow #1 is an excellent book. From the the colorful and energetic action scenes to the well-paced and classically structured narrative, it sets and maintains a standard that I hope it carries through each and every issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Jan 26, 2020

    Just because it's an all-ages comic, doesn't mean it's for kids. It means kids can enjoy it along with their parents. This is an exciting, fresh new story from one of the best publishers around. Don't miss what is sure to be one of the must-read books this quarter. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Feb 19, 2020

    It is pretty clear that the world is as stake, but a teenage superhero turns out to be just what the Doctor (Tomorrow) ordered. But it's not cheesy, it is actually kind of fun. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 19, 2020

    If you are someone new to Doctor Tomorrow like me? Then I would say that this first issue was more than enough to peak your interest. If someone who was familiar with the old Doctor Tomorrow, you may find this take refreshing as a start. All in all, Doctor Tomorrow #1 sets the stage for a new kind of hero in this universe who challenges the impossible through a new lens. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jake Palermo Jan 28, 2020

    So while the set-up to this story is very similar to what's come before in books like Marvel's Sentry, it has potential. At the very least, the artists working on this are good enough for the reader to pick up the series. Because with the energy and emotion going through some of the panels, it's hard not to look away. The readers who stick around might be in for a good surprise. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Jan 29, 2020

    This debut issue is a promising exploration of a unique legacy hero, one who inherits his powers from his future self. The art and writing in action sequences are dynamic and interesting. Unfortunately things slow down dramatically with discussion of scientific principles and character backgrounds. In trying to drive home scientific theory and focusing on a generic teenage character the action is quickly sacrificed. The hope is that future issues are able to convey characterization and story as part of the action rather than a break from it. The creative team of Alejandro Arbona and Jim Towe is a strong one and what remains to be seen is if the story will become more dynamic as it moves forward in future issues. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Feb 19, 2020

    While it is slow, Doctor Tomorrow #1 brings tons of the promise to this new series. The time-traveling will likely lead to some fun arcs down the road, and the cold open teases an exciting event coming. Valiant fans will want to add this series to their pull list. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Christian Hoffer Feb 19, 2020

    Outside of an intriguing premise, the comic doesn't cover a whole lot of ground, although it's got enough of a hook to keep fans coming back for next issue. Read Full Review
