    Comic Bastards - Sergio Porras Jun 26, 2013

    As much as I love Hoax Hunters I would have to say that the creative team really went above and beyond by creating a special that has a little something for everyone no matter what comics you may be into and most importantly if you read Hoax Hunters or not. It looks like the intention here is to gain new readers to the series as opposed to pleasing the already solid fan base. If you're buying this issue because you're already a loyal reader of Hoax Hunters then you're in for a real treat, If you're buying this issue just to see what it’s all about make sure that you keep an open mind and understand that this is meant to be fun and you shouldn't base what this issue offers on what the actual series is about. If anything else Hoax Hunter's - Case Files #1 will be something great to discuss amongst the comic shop crowd or maybe even on an online forum… or the comments below! Read Full Review

    This jam comic reminds me of the days when Marvel and DC would put quirky back-up stories in their annuals, and will be a treat for fans of the ongoing series. Read Full Review

    The four other stories werent quite as strong, but each held their own. All of the creators brought their own sense of style and humor. Its very evident that they all had fun making this book. Hoax Hunters: Case Files is a great read for any comic fan, and just may convince some readers to go check out the core title. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Peter Schmeiser Feb 12, 2014

    One gripe I could offer would be that while the stories thrilled my like Planetary, the art was handled by different teams. Some were good like the treatment of Superman, while others didnt thrill me much. If you like a collection of short science fiction, grab a copy an enjoy yourself. I know once I was done being a judgmental jack-ass, I did. Read Full Review

    Fangoria - Svetlana Fedotov Jul 7, 2013

    As mentioned, each story in the comic is drawn and written by a different creative team. Among the writers, one of the most notable is Tim Seeley (HACK/SLASH) who does a take on the HOAX HUNTERS as a classic superhero team complete with guns, tights and bad attitudes. Another is Nick Pitarra (MANHATTAN PROJECT), who – along with Tim Daniel – wrote and illustrated a strange tale involving multiple Bill Murrays and his (their?) unyielding pranks. Art ranges from newcomer Keith Burns' deeply-brushed swamp landscape about a really ugly unicorn to that of quirky artist Gabo in a one-page fishing story. A well done book with a fantastic array of creators, HOAX HUNTERS: CASE FILES is the perfect stepping-stone into a world of the macabre. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - PNeafsey Jun 24, 2013

    Coming at this as someone who knew nothing about the Hoax Hunters it certainly makes me want to read more of their comics and it was easy to get drawn into the characters or more rather character of Ragen. That would be my only major complaint, from an outsider's perspective the heavy Ragen focus did leave me wanting to learn more about the additional members especially Murder and Jack, but for all I know Ragen's the main character in the actual comics so we'll call that a wash for now. If you're interested in the Hoax Hunters or just want a good one and done read pick it up. Read Full Review
