Only one week until publication, and SMASH: TRIAL BY FIRE got a glowing review from School Library Journal:
[A]n action-packed crowd-pleaser....The full-color artwork is full of kinetic energy. Action sequences are rendered with a cinematic feel, heightening every punch, explosion, and impact. Smash pays homage to the genre while adding tweaks that make it all feel fresh. This is sure to be a draw for superhero fans and reluctant readers alike.
