Incredibles #1 - Reviews!

I'm a bit behind in posting. This has been a crazy roller coaster of a month so far. Regardless, here are the reviews I have found for issue #1 of The Incredibles.

Graphicontent: "Perfect for all ages -- and I mean that: all ages."

Breakfast For Dinner: "This title is a natural for me. I was excited while reading it and I’m excited for the next issue."

CBR: "Where Mark Waid and Landry Walker shine here is in nailing the voices of the characters."

BW Media: "What they got right: Everything"

Stroller Derby: "This is a pretty good all ages book."

This one isn't a review, but the nice folk over at Scans Daily discussed the first issue here.

So people like the book. However, there were also some concerns noted by the reviewers above. As seen below:

Breakfast For Dinner: "There is something about this issue, either how the plot is structured or all the new characters tossed into these 22 pages, that suggests maybe Waid is trying to write this title for kids."


CBR: I read the first two pages half a dozen times and I'm still not entirely sure why the family is going to the mall in order to then go to the doctor's office (which isn't at the mall).

(For those that haven't read the issue, the first two pages in question can be viewed and judged here.)

That's about it. I think it's important to give a fair spectrum of public opinion rather than just highlight the most positive quotes. Overall the reviews are positive even when bundled with specific concerns, and I think that some of said concerns will be resolved as the series progresses.

Time (and future reviews) will tell.
