    I liked the mash up of, Conan, Bigfoot and Alien Gladiators. This comic has something for everyone and I think it was a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Issue #1 of Bigfoot: Sword of the Earthman gives a lot of story in a little bit of time. Heneman shows us how Bigfoot was being used as a captive in order to help construct giant structures for a corrupt ruler, and then shows us his way out"and into another problem (big guy can't catch a break no matter what planet he's on). Taylor gets wildly creative in depicting the various different types of species that inhabit the red planet, while Bonvillain keeps the story grounded in the unforgiving dust of the desert.

    Overall, an excellent comic, which shows much promise, as it not only has the flavors of the two above mentioned books, but also tethers a thick string to Turok, the Dinosaur Hunter. The story by Josh Henaman,, is a godsend in many ways, as he has found a way to revive fantasy in a fun way. The art by Andy Taylor and Tamra Bonvillain definitely shows promise, with their excellent character designs. Altogether, an interesting first issue, which will have readers coming back for more.

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jan 18, 2016

    Bigfoot: Sword of the Earthman # 1 & # 2 is a great throwback of the tales of barbarians and alien worlds, but done well with a modern folktale. Henaman makes it work with giving us an array of threats, an epic hero and a witty sidekick who narrates the whole thing. We get gritty art that shows the dangers of this new world and some interesting looks at the society there. Both issues do a good job with world building while the art creates an outworldly atmosphere of danger, action and suspense. And while there are some panel work that lacks in detail to the point where it looks a bit rushed, the majority of it grabs you and holds on to you. Read Full Review

    The concept is different and interesting it just needed to delivery more. Focusing on Bigfoot would have been better than on all the characters. Bigfoot is big and hairy, just not to scary. Read Full Review

    For those Edgar Rice Burroughs fans, this book is a beautiful mash up of John Carter and, well, big foot. I wish the emphasis had been more on Bigfoot, but it is still a very enjoyable read!
