    This comic almost seems like one big movie reference. From Aliens to Superman to Jurassic Park, we get a little bit of all these titles in one, and it blends together so well. Read Full Review

    As I stared at the cover of Voracious #1, I wondered how can this possibly work"dinosaurs and a cleaver wielding celebrity chef"but work it does. This book is a testament to what good writing, exciting visuals, and some well placed panels can accomplish. Read Full Review

    I'm definitely going to stick with Voracious for the time being. Like so many Action Lab: Danger Zone books that have come before it, this is a comic with great potential, both in its sense of humor, its artistic reach and the intriguing unfurl of its highly entertaining story.

    Voracious #1 is a solid start for this unique mix of dinosaurs and culinary storytelling, with the creators giving us a product that I for one will be eager to return to. That said it is a little long winded at times, with the oversized nature of this opening issue hindering it just as much as it helps give value for money. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Feb 4, 2016

    Overall, the book was ok; it didn't wow me but nor did it bore me rigid. The topics covered aren't really my thing, I haven't even seen Jurassic World yet, so the idea of spending time with the beasties doesn't really appeal. If you, on the other hand, can't get enough of dinosaurs and pop culture, then Voracious may have the ingredients that appeal to your comic book appetite. Read Full Review
