    The Comic Addiction - Michael Smith Sep 29, 2009

    There are so many things that make this book but one of the most underrated items would be the word balloons used when the Triplets are talking. It could have been a challenge to know who was talking at a given time but creating word balloons with icons representing each of the characters was a great solution and a fun aspect to the book. Yes, I am talking about word balloons but I have to say I loved just about every aspect of this book. Read Full Review

    Image is really on a roll right now. The quantity of original, bold, innovative books that the publisher is truly impressive, and I daresay it's likely they are rapidly becoming Vertigo's rival for compelling alternatives to the superhero genre that dominates the industry. CNV is yet another excellent addition to that arsenal, and while the title suggests some sort of hollow gimmick, the book is anything but that. A welcome surprise and a great selection for anyone's pull list. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 25, 2009

    Ultimately, it's Lieberman's balance between the campy appeal of the three-in-one warrior hero of the book with a somewhat logical explanation for it that makes the premise work so well. Cowboy Ninja Viking is quite funny and weird, but there's still a cool, edgy factor at play as well. Lieberman has managed to have his cake and eat it too, as he satirizes adventure genres while also revelling in them. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic Oct 26, 2009

    Cowboy Ninja Viking #1 has a great payoff with its final page, which had me giggling for a good minute at its shocking revelation. I cant wait to see whats next and, more importantly, if the premise can sustain an ongoing series. Read Full Review
