    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 27, 2013

    "Pantalones, TX: Don't Chicken Out" strikes me as a keen mashup of "Kim Possible," "Phineas and Ferb," "Reed Gunther," "Looney Toons" and even a tiny bit of "Chew" with a bent sense of humor that plays to multiple audiences -- and it doesn't hurt to have a number of underwear references. After all, underwear references are the great humorous common denominator. I thoroughly enjoyed this madcap, unreserved romp through southwestern subculture misconceptions and exaggerations. Mercado's given Archaia an offbeat brand to bring some silliness to their offerings. I'll be looking forward to the further adventures of Chico Bustamante and his gang of pals as they continue to find excitement and adventure in the town where underwear was invented. I'm just not sure how Mercado's going to follow up the attack of a giant chicken, though. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jason Sacks Jan 2, 2013

    This is most definitely a graphic novel for kids or for adults who love graphic novels for kids. If you love that sort of thing or have a kid who would love that sort of thing, this wacky new graphic novel is for you. Read Full Review

    I would wholeheartedly recommend this book if you have kids. It’s probably too much to read to your four year old, but if your child is at the point where they can begin reading normal comics this would be a good start for them. There are a lot of jokes that I take for granted due having heard them so many times before, but if this was my first exposure to them I would absolutely love it. On the flip side if you’re an adult that enjoys high quality all-ages material I would try it before I buy it. Personally I don’t think I would sit through another reading, but someone else out there might really enjoy it. Read Full Review
