    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Apr 9, 2014

    The main attraction of this comic is Siya Oum's art. I'm happy to read a story that, while not treading uncharted waters, is beautiful to look at. Even with the somewhat “been there done that” story we get in this issue, I care about Lola. This is mainly because of the setup, I want to know how her story is going to play out. We get a decent amount accomplished in the first issue and leave off on an appropriately ominous note that has me wanting to come back for the next installment. Read Full Review

    The first issue has a wild west vibe in a post apocalyptic United States. Lola's journey is just beginning, and I'm ready to see where it goes. Read Full Review

    All in all, however, its a worthwhile book that youd do well to pick up, not just for the beautiful artwork inside but for the unique narrative that shows a great deal of promise. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Apr 9, 2014

    Lola XOXO is off to a good start.  I'm intrigued as to where the title character will end up next in her journey and what she'll find if she does make it to her destination.  Will she find her parents?  Are they even still alive?  At the very least I'm looking forward to what the rest of this world will look like in Siya Oum's capable hands.

    Lola XOXO #1 is not going to come off as something groundbreaking. But trust me there's enough to earn a recommendation from me and some attention from you. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Apr 8, 2014

    Coupled with dramatic art and a solid plot, Lola has the potential to be an entertaining series. The mystery shrouding the terrorist attack leaves a gaping hole of excitement, and Lola herself has enough vigor to become a compelling lead character. I'll be sticking around for chapter two, and so should you. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kimberly Gibson Apr 9, 2014

    Even though there were some problematic elements there were things I did like. For one, the art is fucking amazing; I dig the doe eyed look all the characters have. I like the style it's got a bit of that tough steampunk flavor too. And again, I do think Lola has potential; the concept is unique and Lola, yeah she's a bad ass. Read Full Review

    This comic has better art and story than other number one issues from small publishers. Whether enough buyers support this comic remain to be seen in the future. For now, chance of early sellout because of low orders from retailers.
