    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Elkin Feb 7, 2012

    Mondo #1 is just one of those comics that demands your attention. It throws you cartwheeling through your sense of reality, and keeps you turning the pages. McKeever is in fine form once again on this series. I have the feeling that this is going to be one of those revenge fantasy stories that ends up being a political statement of profoundly philosophical importance. Either that or just a good old fashion mindfuck of a wild ride. I don't know whether to strap on my thinking cap or belt on my ass pillow, but either way I can't wait to see the next issue.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 22, 2012

    For those always wanting to try something different, MONDO definitely fits that bill. Ted McKeever introduces us to an interesting little world and you can't be sure what is going to happen next. That mystery makes the series fun and exciting but also gives some tiny feelings of doubt. With mutated people, deadly women and a strange chicken, this isn't something you'll want to miss. It's strange enough to grab your attention but not too strange where it feels forced, strange just to be strange. I have absolutely no idea what could or will happen in the next issue but you can bet I will find out the day the next issue is released. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Niall Doonan Mar 22, 2012

    There is both an ugliness and a twisted beauty in these pages and Mondo is just another example of how Image are the most diverse and interesting publisher. The writing and art are equally strong and it's clear that McKeever has plenty of ideas to fit into this three issue mini-series; you won't find another comic like this on the stands.

    Multiversity Comics - Gilbert Short Feb 23, 2012

    This book was a lot of fun to read, and I would give it a buy it if were a tiny bit cheaper. But in a world where every company is fighting for your dollar that you likely have less of, charging $4.99 for a book you've never heard of seems ridiculous. Based on that hefty price tag, which even Marvel or DC takes care to make as rare as possible, it gets a buy SCORE, but with a browse comment. That may seem confusing, but it's the best way I can describe it. Pick it up if you want to try something new and have money to burn, but take care when you do. Flip through it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 15, 2012

    I’m sure everyone will be crapping their pants for this booktoday, but it didn’t grab me. It’s a well-constructed comic for sure. TedMcKeever knows storytelling and how to construct a page that tells a narrativewith the pictures as much as it does with words, but it’s not for me. There isnothing here that I haven’t seen in some form or another somewhere else.Granted this may be your first time reading a book that’s basically the Hulkand not from Marvel; and more power to you if you like it, but I didn’t. Youcan have a fanboy freak out on me if you want, but the fact is I understandeverything this book is trying to do, but that doesn’t make it any good. The art was however... incredible... seriously it was and pun intended. Read Full Review
