    Stash My Comics - Leo Johnson Mar 25, 2014

    Tall Tales from the Badlands is honestly one of the best anthologies I've read in a while, western or otherwise. The quality of the art and stories doesn't slack from story to story. The five stories all have their own distinct voices, while fitting nicely into the “weird west” theme thatTall Tales seems to have. If you're looking to pick up a copy ofTall Tales #3 or any of the previous issues, they can be found digitally on My Digital Comics, Drive Thru Stuff, and Graphiclyor in print on Indy Planetand check out the Black Jack Press Facebook page!

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Jan 27, 2015

    32 pages, five stories all in black-and-white, and one of the best anthologies I've come across to date. Buy this book and discover writers and artists whose work you may have missed out on. Skipping on this title would be a mistake. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Nathan Brown Feb 12, 2015

    Tall Tales form the Badlands #3 does exceedingly well job depicting just how horrific and weird the "Weird West" can be, but fits in well. Exceptionally clear and concise for an anthology, Tall Tales from the Badlands #3 is a smooth read, with extremely distinctive stories throughout. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Apr 19, 2015

    Tall Tales from the Badlands is a solid anthology.  There's something for everyone, as it explores the darker side of the western, often with a supernatural angle.  The twist endings are a nice touch and will make you want to re-read the comic to see the stories in a different light.

    Geek Smash - Nick Alsup Sep 26, 2013

    All stories are independently written and drawn so the look and feel of every episode is drastically different. I do think Issue One was the best of the series so far but #3 is definitely worth reading, especially for the size of a whopping 52 pages: you can't really get that in most series for this value. I think I'll stick with “Tall Tales From The Badlands” and see where they go from here. Although this episode dipped a little too into the sci-fi/fantasy than may have been good for it, overall, this is a solid issue full of gunslingers and grave makers, and I liked it. You can check it out here for yourselves. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jeff Butler Sep 26, 2014

    I was also impressed by the writing and art. Every story engaged me, even if some of them had trouble sticking the landing, I still found myself looking forward to finding out what would happen next. Indie horror is really hard to get right, as too many people mistake a sudden dark turn or general unpleasantness for command of the genre, but the stories here find a nice balance. Most of the stories had polished art as well, the opening story with Jerry Decaire's 70's horror inspired art being particularly striking. The quality control is better here than most, so props as well to the organizer of the book. If you are looking to just read a menagerie of indie talent, track a copy down. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Dec 8, 2013

    I must say that I personally prefer the "straight" western tales that don't cross into the overt supernatural. In that respect, the 3rd issue was a bit of a step down from the previous two for me (though the supernatural aspect may make this more appealing to someone else). On the other hand, the art has been improving with each issue, #3 sporting the best mix of art overall of the 3 issues published so far. If you're a fan of westerns give Tall Tales from the Badlands a try. Read Full Review
