    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 6, 2014

    Fight Like A Girl doesn't release until November which gives you time to pre-order it. Trust me this is going to be one of the best series Action Lab Entertainment has published this year and they have produced some great books already. This series is hip, cool, and full of action and fun. Frankly it's everything you want from a comic book when you pick it up. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Aj Adejare Oct 28, 2014

    The first entry of Fight Like a Girl comes in with a impressionable start. The characters and motivations will get readers invested in the story. The tone feels consistent and respectable for the topic matters of the series. Most of all, it gives the feeling that it will meld fun reading with a sense of mystery to make even some skeptics stay around. Pinckney and Lee did good work in making Fight Like a Girl a comic that people should read and get in on the ground floor, and for a first, entry that is all we can ask. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Nikki Sherman Dec 2, 2014

    Pinckney and Lee have started to craft an interesting world here. He presents the reader with a task made for Hercules, and presents you with a character who doesn't have the typical bulging muscles and super powers to complete it. Amarosa is not your usual hero, and that's the best thing about this book. It's not every day you get to read a book with a strong heroine (and a non-white heroine at that), without her gender or race being thrown in your face. While the title of this book might blatantly point out one of (what I think) the purposes of this book, the actual text and development so far makes this feel absolutely normal. Amarosa is the epitome of a relatable character – she has a strong sense of duty, her family comes first, and she's trying to make the best out of a crappy situation. Even facing giant reptiles hellbent on her failure, Amarosa can throw out some one-liners on par with Buffy's early days. And me? I'm okay with that. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Dec 6, 2014

    Unfortunately, the script is too wordy. The first 5 page sequence is about 3 pages too long. Its a lethargic, dense read that uses too much space without providing very much information. Fight Like a Girl #1 is at its best when it uses action to tell its story. Things picks up once the fighting begins, and by the last page the series finds a groove. If Pinckney holds back on the text, Fight Like a Girl will become a must read. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Oscar Maltby Dec 3, 2014

    Fight Like a Girl #1 is a distinctive and eye-catching book. There are a few niggling problems here that could have been solved with a ruthless and indiscriminate edit, the lack of which sadly leaves the issue's 26 meaty pages feeling unpolished. Still, the unique aesthetic on show here, along with the unpredictable and flexible nature of the premise, ensures that my eyes will be firmly fixed on issue 2. Read Full Review
