Siege thrives on the sheer pulp insanity of a lot of its concepts… thanks to Marvel’s commitment to crafting a coherent universe for its characters, signals the start of a major shift in its status quo.”– Benjamin Birdie, ComicBookResources.Com

“Bendis and Coipel each excel in their craft, with Coipel constructing every line to exacting detail, and Bendis showing remarkable restraint and haste.” – George Marston, Newsarama.com

“[Bendis] delivers plenty of ‘Aw yeah!’ moments that will tickle the funny bone and leave a smile on the reader’s face.” – Jesse Schedeen, IGN.com

“And what about Olivier Coipel? This man can flat out draw.” – Conor Kilpatrick, iFanboy.com
