    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Jun 11, 2014

    The look of the book was always going to be important especially being a licensed comic, and there was no let down here, all three artists did solid jobs and the three colourists did too. I am really impressed with the look of the book especially as there were three different art teams. We see many a time in the Big Two that when one book has many artists the quality of the book suffers, this book despite three different stories and three different artistic teams there was no lack of quality in any of the sections and I wouldnt have been able to tell on first that they were dont by different people and that is a testament to the whole team that worked on the book.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jun 10, 2014

    I was a little bit skeptical that an Angry Birds comic book would work. I mean, the game itself isn’t the most original app on the block. But the entire team puts together a convincing package. This might not be the kind of book that you’ll buy month in and month out but if you need to keep your kid entertained for a few minutes or you’re trying to introduce an otherwise video game-obsessed kid to reading, this is a solid purchase.

    IGN - Jess Camacho Jun 12, 2014

    Aquaman writer Jeff Parker's opener stuck out the most. His tale is funny in all the right ways. He gives all the birds distinct voices and makes the green piggies bad enough to be the antagonists. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Jun 10, 2014

    If you're an Angry Birds fan, then issue #1 will certainly deliver. If you're looking for the next evolution of this franchise, however, you're going to have to wait. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jun 13, 2014

    "Angry Birds" is a successful debut, because it doesn't just count on riding on the success of the games. The comic is suitable for all ages but won't be boring for adults, and existing fans should be pleased. However, it would be interesting for future issues to try for more formal experimentation or tell a longer story, since there is the space to make different kinds of stories possible.

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jun 15, 2014

    I like the artwork. The colours are vivid and bright. The best part about the entire comic book was the slingshot frame at the bottom of each page mimicking the red bird attacking the pigs. I enjoyed this comic book and would recommend it to kids. Yet, I wonder how the creators will create enough stories for a continuing series. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed Jun 11, 2014

    I'm not sure who would consider this book in first place " it's tooyoung for most adults, and I just don't know any kids who would wantto read about their favorite, completely non-descript throwawayvideo game characters " but if you're thinking about it at all, there'sa lot to like here. It's actually pretty good, and I'm a littlesurprised by that. But what do I know? I didn't even realize the birdswere actual characters until I read this, I just thought they wereammunition" Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Jun 11, 2014

    I had a feeling this comic book would be bad, but its actually fine. If I was 8 and/or a huge Angry Birds fan, Id be pretty stoked to read this. It sort of reminded me of reading Madballs comics as a kid. The world has its own kind of logic that is not all that important. Its all about the last panel laughs and the little smirks that get you there. Definitely for kids only, but even kids with taste will enjoy this one. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Gregory Paul Silber Jun 11, 2014

    If the idea of reading comics about Angry Birds sounds too silly for you, Angry Birds Comics probably won't change your mind. But if you have kids that are fans of the franchise, they may get a kick out of it. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Jun 10, 2014

    Maybe Im just a humourless old curmudgeon, but comics do have the ability to make me laugh out loud – shocker, I know – and this simply didnt manage it once. If your weeuns are Angry Birds obsessed, this might hold their attention for a few minutes. But honestly, youre better off handing them whichever device you have the game on. Read Full Review
