    With more laugh a minute gags, and some really high energy looking art and more 80s action movie references you can't go wrong with Amerikarate. If you're a fan of 80s cheese, gag a minute writing, and high energy action then you owe it to yourself to pick this issue up. Read Full Review

    While I appreciate the attempt, I'm bowing out on this issue. Amerikarate is practically catered to my demographic and yet it's just not working. There's more homage than story, but the reason all the movies referenced are memorable was because of their story. Even if the story wasn't great, the story was the lynchpin that kept it all together and worth watching. Amerikarate has cherry picked so much that it can't find its own story to keep all the homage afloat and that's just a shame. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Ray Apr 12, 2017

    I get that there's different kinds of humor, but in this day and age being funny just for the sake of being funny just doesn't cut it. Just picking bits and pieces of things that make you laugh and smashing them together and hoping it works usually doesn't. With a multitude of titles that are legitimately funny out there Action Lab Entertainment will really need to step up it's training regimen if it wants to Rumble with the big boys. Read Full Review
