    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Dec 10, 2014

    PUNKS is an insane breath of fresh air. It's unlike everything else on the shelves and any book that makes fun of the McCarthy era communist hunt, more than half a century after it happened, is totally ok in my book. The interview with Rick Remender is hilarious. And I'm totally digging on the cut and paste art. The book is just a solid good time and if you understand the formula of the book, you're going to love it. (The secret formula is fun) Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux Dec 31, 2014

    I assume both creators want to work in this town again, so American comics, both as an industry and as a culture, are probably safe. That and the zealous protection of copyrights and trademarks may keep this dynamic duo from slaying comic book sacred cows. Still, the sky's the limit for Abe, Skull, Fist, and Dog, and I'm sure they'd take a crap on the sky, too. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Dec 9, 2014

    If you're not reading this, you're making a huge mistake. No rules and all madness, Punks invites everyone to join in on the fun as long as they promise to not get offended. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Dec 10, 2014

    Ending in a way that is just as unexpected as everything that precedes it, the creative team recycles moments of an earlier era of the series and it has a whole different level of entertainment considering where those involved are today. In some ways, it is rather surprising, even with the knowledge of what Punks strives to be, that this would have been reprinted. While there may truly be only one Highlander, there is certainly only one Punks and it is fantastic. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Dec 11, 2014

    But to get back to my opening question: it's clear after three issues that punk " for "Punks" " is all about the chaos, the energy, the restlessness. It's about plotlines spiraling out of control and the well-meaning but rather impulsive bros who are along for the ride, railing against inexplicable powers-that-be. If you're not expecting a lucid, novelistic read " and if you've got a rebellious spark somewhere in you " you'll find "Punks" plenty palatable. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kierra Prince Dec 12, 2014

    Basically, if you're going to like Punks you've probably already decided to pick it up and if you hated the previous two issues then there's nothing here to change your mind. However, I will say that if there's anyone still on the fence, this is the issue to pick up simply for the Remender interview alone. Read Full Review
