    It's not essential to Super Secret Crisis War but wow it'd be a shame to miss reading this one-shot. Even if you aren't reading Super Secret Crisis War, if you're a fan of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, you are going to love this. You feel as if this is a lost episode of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy by the time the comic is over. Weird enough to admit that this is a one-shot that holds up on its own while being a neat part of the story. A clever one-shot that keeps you hooked every step of the way. Nothing more to say outside of read this comic and enjoy yourself. Read Full Review

    Luckily, there is a short backup tale from writer Louise Simonson and artist Derek Charm that ties into the main event more directly. There's just enough here to justify a purchase, and Billy and Mandy fans can rest easy knowing this franchise can function well as a comic. Read Full Review

    So far the tie-ins have felt like a good way to introduce some other shows now that the big heroes are off fighting in the main event, but that's about it. If they are serving as a sample of what the respective teams can do with the characters they're given in an ongoing series, then I say definitely bring it on. Read Full Review

    For readers who have not been following along with this story, the issue really does stand well on its own as a singular story. In a short amount of space, Leth and Little are able to introduce readers to a predicting story, a cast of characters and the stand-alone plot and it all lands. For fans of the issue, or the included properties, this is a great introduction to the larger universe at work as well as some solid talent to follow. Read Full Review
