    With Apocalyptigirl and now this, MacLean has cemented his place as an absolute must-buy creator for me, and Im already starting to get withdrawals until my next quarterly Norgal fix. One of my favourite reads of the year, even if the three-month wait between issues is borderline cruel. Darkly humourous, gloriously illustrated and boundlessly entertaining, Head Lopper is a book you truly owe it to yourself to pick up. Read Full Review

    As Head Lopper goes on, I find myself drawn more and more to action on the periphery, to the things that show up to flavor what's going on in the center of the panel. I don't know what Maclean's plan is for the book come next year when all four parts are out, but he's built a world rich enough to sustain any kind of story he wants to tell. I can't wait to live in it a few times a year. Read Full Review

    HEAD LOPPER #2 is as fun as it gets. Writer/artist Andrew MacLean continues the story of Norgal, the nomadic warrior who just wants to lop some heads. With cartoonishly simple art that fits the straightforward character of the book, HEAD LOPPER #2 is a good read all around. Read Full Review

    Oddly enough, although perhaps due to the super-max runtime of this first issue, “Head Lopper” #2 does feel comparatively light on story, with much more of a focus being given to Nergal and Agatha than the scheming villains that circle ever closer to them. However I'd much prefer this slightlylackadaisical approach than one that felt needlessly hurried. Given that we've already reached the half-way point in this limited issue run, I'm hoping that fan support and sales will persuade Image to open up “Head Lopper” for a more open-ended run. There could be seemingly endless permutations of Nergal's story and, just likeSamurai Jack, “Hellboy”, and other franchises with super stoic leads, I doubt I'd ever tire of seeing Nergal squaring up against an army of endless and terrible monsters and slogging through, though he's hopelessly outmanned and outgunned.
