    The Comic Addiction - Andrew Griffiths May 13, 2009

    We Kill Monsters stands strong on its own, yet subconsciously I can’t help feeling that it brings back everything I used to love about Buffy the Vampire Slayer when it was on TV – it has the humour, the monsters, the gripping characters and a story that I don’t want to end. This is great news, since I have now found something to fill that void that Buffy’s own Season 8 comics haven’t quite managed to do. Unfortunately, We Kill Monsters isn’t released until July 8th so in the meantime it looks like I’ll just have to hold my breath until issue #2. Read Full Review

    We kill Monsters was a fun little (184 pages) romp though the horror genre, where monsters are monsters and bad guys are over the top villains. It doesn't take itself too seriously or encourage the reader to do so. It's a frank, charming, and unpretentiously fun. Read Full Review

    Now, for the business part: this book is in the current volume of Previews " the orders for which are due on June 2nd. With Diamond's new publishing threshold, we've watched as several series disappear from existence before given the chance to breathe properly (Warlord of Io, anyone?). So do yourself a favour: if you like monsters, and if you like punching " tell your local comic shop to give this book a try " and in July, you'll be rewarded with 32 pages of good times. What's not to like? Read Full Review

    IGN - Daniel Crown Jul 22, 2009

    Again, even if We Kill Monsters isn't in any way superb, the book does just enough to provide Red 5 with yet another comestible product. It's definitely worth a look to those who like their horror stories projected with a light-hearted, charm-driven approach. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Charles Webb May 15, 2009

    Again, everything about the book is charming and familiar. I look forward to later issues to see if this team can keep the charm and move away from the familiarity. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 28, 2009

    This book was not quite what I expected and I'm having a very difficult time determining whether or not to take a chance on the second issue when it comes out. I'm not sure any of this is going to be memorable enough to stick with me until then, but there just might be a payoff worth the investment in issue #2. As I mentioned before, the premise has potential, after all, other than Claw, how many characters are out there fighting evil with a limb that resembles those of the enemies more than those of the heroes? There is potential here: potential for a fun story, or potential for a snoozer. I'm hoping the fun story steps up in issue #2. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jun 29, 2009

    Think Supernatural meets Ash from Army of Darkness. Theres no clear cue as to what this series wants to be. At times, the writers play it straight, and at others, theres a goofier tone at play. Read Full Review
