    "Fantastic,” "controversial,” "inspirational"… these are words to describe this story, depending on your beliefs and, with only one more issue to go, it gets another 10/10, because it makes you think. Read Full Review

    I can go on and on about how awesome Punk Rock Jesus is. It is plentiful in substance but this is a miniseries that I suggest you just read yourself. So, what are you waiting for? It’s not too late! Go on and up the punk because I wouldn't want you to be missing out on what I honestly think is one of the best and controversial comics of the year. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Nov 19, 2012

    This is the best comic being published right now. From a writing/art standpoint, it might have a few equals, but the fact that Murphy actually has something to say puts it in another class. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Nov 16, 2012

    Murphy is a credit to skeptics and those who dare to challenge the establishment, religious or otherwise, and more importantly, "Punk Rock Jesus" makes a reader think as well as feel, more than any other comic on the stands. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Nov 14, 2012

    The strongest aspect of Punk Rock Jesus is - always has been -- the art. Murphy's scratchy line work looks brilliant in black and white. There is a richness to every panel; an overabundance of detail and emotion. The double page spreads are serious things of beauty; true works of art. Murphy's use of light and dark makes this book soar. Even if you find the subject matter offensive, you can't help but marvel at the pretty, pretty pictures. Read Full Review
