Charles Band's long-running cult classic horror film series makes its way to the comic page!  When a group of friends sets out to use the abandoned Bodega Bay Inn as a party spot, they find out first-hand that the bizarre local folklore is more truth than fantasy as an army of twisted autonomous Puppets have their way with the trespassing teens!  The Puppets are back, and they're out for blood!

    While this issue might not get anyone on the Puppet Master trolley, I really think that it speaks to the fans, who've wanted a non budget restricted outing with their favorite killer puppets and that's exactly what we get here.  Definitely handled with care and only makes me want to check out the continuing series.  Kudos to Action Lab for taking a chance on this direct to video cult series and continuing it's legacy.

    For fans of Puppet Master, and there's quite a bit of them out there, this first issue does a great job of providing a “welcome back". The puppets Blade, Pinhead and Tunneler are all back and are all treated with the respect they deserve. I enjoyed this issue so much that I'm looking forward to seeking out the movie series once again, and trying to catch up on all the sequels I missed over the course of twenty-years! Puppet master, although firmly set in the world of horror is still a fun franchise with memorable characters. Action Lab and the creative team involved have rekindled my interest in the franchise and has me excited for what's to come! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Sep 17, 2015

    As far as comics go, this is a very good read. As far as comics based on movies go, this is excellent. Shawn Gabborin turns in a great script that captures many of the things that made the movies fun in the first place. The art by Michela Da Sacco is a wonderful addition to the good writing. Puppet Master #1 should make people go back and watch these movies again. Action Lab has a hit on its hands. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Mark Pellegrini Apr 1, 2015

    Admittedly, Puppet Master is a pretty niche brand, but it has its fanbase and this comic is aimed to please them. If the last few movies have left you feeling cold (that weird Axis of Evil shit), then you should give the comic a swing. It feels much closer to the earlier films in the series, which is good, because those are the best ones. Read Full Review

    Gabborin and De Scacco did an excellent job of capturing the essence of the earlier films and even those who aren't familiar with the brand will thoroughly enjoy this horror delight. Read Full Review

    If you enjoy the Puppet Master movies and you feel like reading a comic about them thenby all means check this comic out. I'm sure there are fanatics who will really enjoy seeing these characters revisited. If you just enjoy horror this is worth a look but if you choose to skip more scarier fare I won't blame you. Puppet Masters #1 isn't trying todo anything more than revisit 80's horror cheese. Read Full Review
