“Tag is creepy. Tag is downright scary. …Tag proves that Giffen is more than the great writer we already thought he was.“The cover by E.M. Gist is probably the creepiest cover I’ve ever seen. In a way, I was scared to even open the comic. The inside art by Kody Chamberlain also evokes a disturbing atmosphere that seeps into the storyline.
“An eerie premise that will definitely become a movie…
“The pun in the title, of the X-factor of the island they become marooned on and the exile that they are in, is interesting enough to make you pick this book up.
“The cool art is reminiscent of that new Philip K. Dick flick, A Scanner Darkly. It’s wonderfully different and atmospheric. Artist Greg Scott has done a magnificent job. The dialogue and pacing is quick and fast-paced. It is astonishing to see how quickly characters have been made into recognizable assets already.
“I am looking forward to the mystery of this book, evocative of the old monster comics but with that modern twist. ”
“This series is funny in a way that brings new light to all those DC Multiple Earth stories.“The art by Joe Abraham is highly and fantastically reminiscent of the old Justice League in its heyday. If you liked the somewhat recent JLA Classified with stories like Formerly Known as the Justice League and I Can’t Believe It’s Not the Justice League, then you’ll love Hero Squared.”
“imbued with the same dry, demented sense of humor that can be found in books such as Goon and Preacher. Andrew Cosby ( Damn Nation/ X-Isle) & Johanna Stokes (Zombie Tales), the writers behind Sci-Fi’s new television show Eureka (something that I really am enjoying at the moment) and Rafael Albuquerque (Rumble in La Rambla) assemble this simplistic but fun tale in which we hitch a ride into the zombie infested countryside with brothers Otis and Dale Savage.
“This is a book that I simply can’t get enough of, and I thank the folks at Boom! Studios for making this an ongoing series. Anything less simply wouldn’t do!
“Nelson’s tale isn’t a simple sci-fi shoot Ã¢â‚¬Ëœem up… Instead, Nelson shows us something more frighteningÃ¢â‚¬Â¦the ugly side of humanity.
“Nelson delivers a tense, compelling story…
“Even more surprising? I read this entire issue before discovering that the Martians appeared nowhere! In fact, there was absolutely no alien activity at all until this issue’s closing pages! That, my friendsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦is powerful storytelling!
Overall grade = A”
