    Robyn Hood: Wanted #1 is a great returning issue on all fronts. This character is so appealing and so refreshing to read, and this issue is everything about Robyn and her world that makes it special. It isn't a typical comic, and that's just fine, but that might turn some readers off. It deals with a lot of fantasy and magical aspects, dimensional travel and real world dark, gritty issue. If any of those things work for you, then jump on board; new reader or returning reader alike. Read Full Review

    Overall, Robyn remains is one of Zenescope's most interesting female protagonists out of a host of interesting female leads in their comics. Her story looks to remain as interesting, and at times heart wrenching, in Wanted as it did in her first series, and Robyn's fans wouldn't have it any other way. Read Full Review

    Overall, a solid opening issue of Wanted. It's not themostexciting Robyn Hood issue, but it nicely sets things up for what's to come. Readers of the original title willdefinitelywantto jump on, and new readers shouldn't worry about catching up, pick up this fun comic. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Brendan Harvey May 8, 2013

    Overall the pacing is very good. The story moves along quickly thanks to the “split the difference” dual-world narration. There are a few decent bits of action and there are enough interesting morsels of story to leave you interested in issue #2. Read Full Review

    Needless to say I am excited to see Robyn go back to Myst, which I am hoping that she does. The last few pages of the folk teller shows the group of kids being attacked. By who? Read the damn comic. We jump back to Robyn and she is getting herself in trouble with her old man. The popo get involved and all hell breaks loose. We finally get some action packed pages. The ending is a bit of a surprise and leads me to believe that Robyn will be getting in some pretty heavy Myst. See what I did there…mist like heavy shit and Myst like being transported back. Why I am so cool? Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Dillon Tripp May 10, 2013

    Overall, I am not certain where this miniseries is heading. By the end of the first book, there was not enough narrative tension or build-up to excite me for the next issue. Sadly, this seems to be another chance to put an attractive woman in tight clothing and watch her jump around. I do urge you to keep in mind that this is an introductory issue to a series, which almost always suffer from building or building upon, a world for the reader. However, with only 5 issues in the series, the book is going to have to make up some ground very quickly in order to be successful. The artwork was a problem for me, but this might not be an issue depending on your preference; regardless though, there are times where the character movements and actions just do not look natural or fluid. It will be interesting to see where the next issue takes the miniseries, but for now, I'd consider picking it up for the nice cover only. Read Full Review
