“If the first issue is any indication, this series promises lots of action and that is something to be very pumped up for.” —Benjamin Bailey, IGN

“This is the type of comic that punches you in the gut with its storytelling. Getting punched in the gut may not sound fun but this comic absolutely is.”
—Tony Guerrero, Comic Vine
