Hold on. We’re still publishing this? I thought we were just screwing around, and, now, what? We’re publishing this thing AGAIN? Just tell me there’s less groin punching this time...please?

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Nov 5, 2014

    It's generally assumed that being punk is a young man's game. You have to be mad at authority, you have to have this set of ideals that you basically stole from Joe Strummer, and you have to have, at one point, picked up a guitar with the intent of learning how to play it and then only learned how to play "Blitzkrieg Bop" before you quit. Not so, friends. Fialkov and Chamberlain are making the most punk comic out there at one of the biggest, not-quite-mainstream-but-basically-mainstream publishers in the world, and they're doing it at a stage in their lives where most people would feel cheated out of the promises of punk. Remember, dear readers, being punk isn't about being angry (although it certainly can help): Being punk is about not giving a shit. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Morven MacAskill Nov 9, 2014

    In this issue it also feels like there is a very loose plot within it. Although it still is plotless as before, there is some kind of thread that is being followed, Punks is still linking itself with the previous issue and it might be surreal and with no moral to the story, but it still gives the reader something to enjoy and laugh over.

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Nov 4, 2014

    If you liked issue one, you will love issue two. Fialkov and Chamberlain have created despicable characters that you can't help but love and we're frothing at the mouth to get more of this craziness. I found my new favorite thing to say to someone who angers me : “Go. Be. Homeless!” Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Nov 5, 2014

    PUNKS is really awesome but not for everyone. It's pretty out-there, but the thing that's great about the book is that there's not a lot to it. It's just a lot of fun, crotch punches, and Native American statues about to go into a monologue. Fialkov and Chamberlain put some love back into comics. If you're looking for a book that's really out there, where each issue is a self-contained, and quite wacky, story, then PUNKS is for you. Overall, I highly recommend this issue, unless you take everything too seriously. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Nov 5, 2014

    Fialkov and Chamberlain are a perfect match for this book. The humor, crass writing, character designs and overall construction of the book is unwavering in its vision. The book is rather specific in its aims and if it were to falter in any aspect of its design, it would not work. Fortunately, the creative team behind Punks have managed to create a product that does exactly what it aims to do. For something that is meant to appear as slapped together and silly as what two high school friends might create using magazines and insane writing, Fialkov and Chamberlain certainly are working hard to push the envelope and maintain a distinct voice. Punks, for the right audience, will be a top-of-the-pile series for as long as it remains in publication, and rightly so. Read Full Review

    Punks the comic is an odd mess that isn't enjoyable. Read Full Review
