    All in all, not a bad read. Dont know that I would buy the issue without being turned on by a friend but not a bad start Read Full Review

    Scott Kinney has definitely created something I like. I feel that the actual 22 page format has worked against him as the comic moves very fast and just as you start to get into it we have the cliff-hanger and a month to wait. A little more background into the characters would have been nice, but I am sure things will be filled out more in the upcoming issues. Overall, its a very slick, fun, action packed comic and to be quite honest, its better than a lot of the other stuff out there on the shelves by the bigger companies. Recently, I have definitely become more excited by reading titles like this than I am in reading half the regular titles I pick each week. Read Full Review

    Its a hell of a deal for 75-cents. Lets hope the next issue is worth 3 bucks. Read Full Review

    I'll give Killer Stunts a tentative thumbs up, because theres obvious talent at work here, and this first issue is a great read. That said, I hope that even though this is clearly an action-led series, the creators will take the time in future issues to provide more of a balance. Read Full Review

    Still, the strong art and the potential likeability of the characters counts for a lot. Theres a nice fist fight in a garage that recalls the far quirkier film The Transporter. If Kinney can make his bland hero more distinctive, and perfect the formula of movie stunt/real stunt/mystery, things could look up from this promising debut. Kids got potential. And maybe drop the B-movie gangster junk altogether; the movie industrys hinky enough on its own to provide all the story Billy needs. Read Full Review

    Yeah, it sounds like a mediocre TV series set to comics, and thats how the first issue reads to me. We have a few fun action scenes, and behind the scenes intrigue, and an impossibly tacky outfit, too. Its fine for what it is, but honestly, if this were on TV, I probably wouldnt tune in. Theres nothing especially fresh or exciting here, nothing that puts a unique spin on the concepts. Instead, its a very professional run though ground that feels like its been treaded before. I cant see any compelling reason to spend $2.99 for successive issues of it, but, of course, your mileage may vary. Read Full Review
