    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jul 23, 2013

    There's a continuation of Jane Espenson's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Love Vs. Life" story, tying directly into the Season 9 arc, more "Trekker" from Ron Randall and editor Mike Richardson's interesting adaptation of Andrew Vachss's "Underground". Yet the moment of zen brilliance is Patrick Alexander's "Steggy Wilmot and Spimps", a satirical bit of surrealism in which the idly rich Steggy is brought his morning pig by butler Spimps, creates a list of things he could buy (including Spimps' house and daughter) and is saddened when his Great Newspaper article about why pigs are sad fails to yield the fan-mail he desires. If that doesn't get you running out to buy this always terrific anthology, then nothing will. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Sean A. Guynes Jul 24, 2013

    Despite being an anthologyand one might fear that some bad eggs could slip ineditor Mike Richardson has ensured a batch of high-quality comics, which run the gamut of realistic horror to funny strip to classic sci-fi. While Dark Horse Presents #26 isnt for everyone, I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in sampling the diverse possibilities of graphic narratives, as well as those who are fans of the genres or writers/artists featured in this issue. DHP certainly delivers. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 24, 2013

    Well there you have it. It's another solid month for the Eisner winning anthology and while there are still a few series that I'm just completely skipping, for the most part this issue is really good. There are several new stories starting so if you want to jump on the book then now's the best time to do so. If anything you should get is just for David Lapham" I'm not joking. Read Full Review
