CJ Standal gets off to a scintillating career start for what will hopefully be a long running serial. There's a lot to praise about Rebirth, from the dynamic illustrations of Juan Romera to the rich storyline and deep characters. While my personal favorite character is the short-fused Lex, there is no denying that the reluctant power and troubled history of Marcus are the driving force of this story. Intricately interwoven flashbacks draw us into the mind and motivations of Marcus as a successfu ...more

Normally, I don’t review comics but this was a nice and rather surprising step outside my regular read. This was awesome. What a great start!

I really enjoyed this comic. It was very short but by the time I had made it through to the last panel, it left me wanting more. I would have preferred it have some color, but understood the nostalgic appeal the black and white brought to the story. I would read more installments of this comic book, and recommend it to anyone who enjoys this style of stories.

You can find this review (along with many more) on the CommonBookSense blog, found here.

I was pulled in immediately by this comic's intriguing cover and the increasingly suspenseful and intricate plot kept me mesmerized to the very end. The author's clever incorporation of flashbacks introduces a rich complexity to Marcus and the striking artwork perfectly nuances his current professional success with his gritty past. I can't wait for the second issue!
