“A great first issue… Scarlet has some stuff she wants to tell me, and I can’t wait to hear it.” – Johnny Destructo, Ain’t It Cool News
“Scarlet #1 is an incredibly exciting, original and re-inventive book.” – Dan Phillips, IGN.com
“Outside of works like Watchmen, Maus, and A History of Violence, ‘art’ is rarely used to describe comic books. This is exactly what Scarlet accomplishes.” – Ben Johnson, Mania.com
“It’s a strong start to what looks like the best work from Bendis in years, and maybe the best work from Maleev ever. Scarlet #1 feels personal and passionate, from cover to cover. 4 ½ stars out of 5.” – Timothy Callahan, ComicBookResources.com
“Scarlet #1 is as close to a great indie film as a single comic book issue can come, with all of the blood, sweat and tears that go into making it laid out on the page.” – Ron Richards, iFanboy.com
“Best Comic of the Week.” – James Fulton, ComicsNexus
