    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jan 18, 2012

    To compliment this fantastic tale is art that fits it absolutely perfectly. Chris Eliopoulos' art is everything it needs to be in Cow Boy and I found myself experiencing the same comfortable feeling a person gets when reading a Peanuts strip. Eliopoulos' trademark style is on full display in this volume of Cow Boy and the book was as visually delighting as the dialogue was to read. I am highly impressed by Eliopoulos' ability to convey humour, drama, sadness and disappointment throughout the book without dramatically changing his style at any point. There is a lot of subtlety in the art and it amplifies the story well. Most of all, this is a fun comic and Eliopoulos knocks it out of the park. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 4, 2012

    The fact that this book starts off strong and only gets better as it continues speaks to the strength of Cow Boy, both in concept and in execution. This is an all-ages book that will appeal to anybody, whether they be young or young-at-heart. For a fistful of dollars, you can join in on the fun with Cow Boy, one of the most fun Archaia books I've seen since Mouse Guard. Best of the west, indeed. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 1, 2012

    The cartoon look makes it deceptively welcoming to the all age's crowd. Granted, it is an all age's book, but the deeper story is one that only an older audience will get and appreciate. For kids this will just simply be a kid bounty hunter gathering his family for a reward, while others will see it's about doing the right thing in the face of family responsibilities. At first glance I never thought that this comic would have moved me as much as it did or get me so interested in the series that I'm frustrated by the fact that I must now wait for the next volume. Ride on Cow Boy, I'll be here waiting for next adventure. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero May 30, 2012

    It's not often you get a comic that is fun, entertaining and a delight to read. COW BOY by Nate Cosby and Chris Eliopoulos is a treat. People read comics for different reasons. There are several different types. This is a comic anyone could read. You'll immediately be drawn to Eliopoulos' familiar art style and you'll become engrossed by Cosby's stories of the young bounty hunter. Read Full Review

    Cow Boy is a book full of heart and soul. Both Cosby and Eliopoulos have put their all into this labor of love. And it shines through on every single page. The comic is a joy to read, even when it makes you sad. Cow Boy is so wonderfully different from all the comics I've read, and I can't wait to share it with people. Read Full Review

    Because I was so surprised by Cow Boy I really dont want to give too much away. Cow Boy is gripping and funny, but ultimately heart breaking and brilliant. Cosby and Eliopoulos show just what can be achieved with the form, a perfect example of the creativity that exists in the medium. Read Full Review
