    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Feb 14, 2015

    Matt Miner and Sean Von Gorman have really found their stride with this issue. Toe Tag Riot is a damn fun comic book. It flows like a gore-filled, undead road trip with a cast of characters that really grow on you. It's kind of like the Punisher if he killed stupid people instead of mobsters...and he was four zombies in a punk rock band...OK. It's nothing like the Punisher. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Feb 11, 2015

    As for the plot, well, it's fairly simple. Rather than focus on an intricate plot, Miner is more concerned with fleshing out (Get it?) the main cast, and he does it masterfully. The plot merely provides a backdrop, and the general conceit is that the band, Toe Tag Riot, is on tour across the United States in order to lift the curse put on them, and also eat members of the Westboro Baptist Church. If that insults you, well, jokes on you I guess, because this book's not for you. Though maybe reading it will do you some good. I can see it now: "Kids, don't be bigots, or else zombie punk rockers will come munch on your brains in broad daylight!" Read Full Review

    GAMbIT Magazine - J. Luis Feb 11, 2015

    Toe Tag Riot #3 does in fact serve as a filler issue to the overall story, but it kicks societyin the balls hard enough to keep you entertained. I mean, who here doesn't hate “dude bros” and want to see them get their comeuppance. I also can't wait until next month when the band finally faces the Westboro Baptist Church! Maybe the Toe Tag Riot series just speaks to me on a more personal level as a person that would be considered a punk in the eyes of many, but I really do think that Tow Tag Riot is a book that needs to be on everyone's pull list and comes highly recommended. In a medium that tends to play it safe with regards to social issues and the authority, Toe Tag Riot flips it the double bird and for that it's to be commended. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Lindsey Bass Feb 12, 2015

    Miner and Von Gorman have produced a quality book thats anti-hate and supportive of the LGBT community. I look forward to reading the next issues and hearing what others have thought about it. Read Full Review

    Overall, while readers looking for a sophisticatedbreakdown of the social injustice and bigotry of the world are unlikely to find what theyre looking for here, those of us who just want to see a Dudebropumped so full of steroids that his arm explodes are in for an absolute treat. It may be a little on the nose at times, but thisis aworthy message delivered with all the subtlety of a Doc Marten to the groin. Highly recommended, providing youre willing to look past the superficial flaws. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 12, 2015

    Anyway, this issue is a romp. It's entertaining and you have enough fun with it that you don't even care if the band finds the witch that cursed them. That and I love that they only sing one song over and over throughout the series… and that it's the title of the band/comic. Read Full Review
