    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh May 28, 2014

    Much, indeed, like a faux-sentient automaton built over three decades ago might, Vandroid #4 wanders about clunkily and with all the subtlety of wraparound sunglasses, airbrushed automobiles and murder mullets, but it's also a whole lot of stupid fun for under five bucks.

I like the elements of throwback exploitation movie, and enjoy how well they coalesce into a unique and bizarre story, even with portions that troubled me… Read Full Review
