Advance Reviews are in:

“This is definitely the book I’ll be most recommending to people this week.” — NEWSARAMA’s Amanda McDonald

“Even without Lee’s name, this project would be worth checking out.” — IGN

“SOLDIER ZERO should be picked up…your not going to want to miss what is next! 9 out of 10″ — PLAYER AFFINITY

“I highly recommend you give this title a chance. Stan Lee wouldn’t steer you wrong” — PENDRAGON’S POST

“I am hooked. If you’ve read and enjoyed other BOOM! titles like IRREDEEMABLE or INCORRUPTIBLE, you should definitely enjoy this.” — COMIC VINE

“Stan Lee has done it again!” — JAZMA ONLINE

“Cornell and Pina create a really intriguing first issue.” — COMICS BULLETIN

“Pina’s art is the perfect companion to Cornell’s script and both are more than capable of handling this momentous launch and doing justice to a Stan Lee creation. Bring on issue two!”— POP CULTURE ZOO

“Writer Paul Cornell’s exploration of the experiences of a disabled person rings true and makes for some strong interpersonal moments in the story… Javier Pina seems to take a two-pronged approach to the art for this inaugural issue, and it’s quite effective. The slick, sci-fi elements boast a bold, sharp look, and the action is choreographed quite well. But for the more down-to-earth moments, there’s a lighter touch at play.” — EYE ON COMICS

“Javier Pina’s art is simply fantastic, filled with clean bold lines, and a rich assortment of facial expressions. He’s truly one of those artists who doesn’t just DRAW a story, but TELLS a story in picture form. It’s great. And Alfred Rockefeller’s colors really sell it.” — PROJECT FANBOY

“There was nobility there in Cornell’s writing… I can say this – I REALLY enjoyed Javier Pina’s art. He’s a real find… Ok, Stan Lee may not have written the script, but this is a Stan Lee book through and through” —MULTIVERSITY COMICS

“…look at the hero behind the mask — and you’ll find that Soldier Zero is really, truly, finally not like any other character out there” — NEWSARAMA’s David Pepose

STAN’S BACK! THE PUBLISHING EVENT OF THE YEAR! Stan Lee, the most colossal force in the history of comics, teams up with BOOM! Studios to deliver a brand new line of superhero comics! The great innovator of our industry brings his inimitable talents back to the direct market in an explosive line of comics that nobody is prepared for! Half Human. Half Alien. All Weapon. In this first ongoing series, SOLDIER ZERO, Stan teams up with critically acclaimed writer Paul Cornell (ACTION COMICS, DOCTOR WHO) and artist Javier Pina (SUPERMAN, BATMAN) for a dramatic, action-packed superhero scorcher. When an alien parasite falls to Earth, wheelchair-bound college student Stewart Trauttmann becomes infected, and goes through super-human changes that no mortal could imagine. Forced into a galactic war that’s chosen Earth as the battlefield, Stewart defends the front line as…SOLDIER ZERO! The intergalactic war hits Earth this October in a new ongoing series from Stan Lee and BOOM! Studios. Featuring covers by fan-favorite artists Trevor Hairsine (X-MEN), Dave Johnson (PUNISHER), and Phil Noto (AVENGERS: THE ORIGIN).
