    cxPulp - Blake Petit Jul 21, 2011

    In addition to those two stories, told in full color, there are also several black and white pages of short comic strips, a credits page that looks like it spilled over from a Mad marginal, and two game pages one spot the differences page and one where youve got to locate the two identical covers in a crowded comic book shop. Its rare for any publisher to offer an artist such free reign to do whatever they want in the pages of a comic book, but even rarer for the creator to do such a diverse array of things in the pages of a single comic book. Aragons is one of those guys who knows his strengths and plays to them flawlessly. If youre a fan of his work in any of those many, many places hes done it before, youll love this comic book.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Jul 24, 2011

    I really don't need to go on and on about this issue. It's really good and this will be on my pull list for as long as Aragones wants to publish it. Adults will chuckle at it, but then you should hand it to a kid, because they'll love it just as much. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jul 21, 2011

    While I wasn't interested in the games, I did appreciate the level of detail the artist put into the images. The comic-shop scene is particularly impressive in its meticulousness and for the fact that Aragones doesn't sacrifice any of the flair and personality he instils in his art. The same can be said of his introduction. Set in his office/studio, it stands out as the most visually impressive piece in the comic book. One really gets a strong sense of Aragones' inner sanctum and the irreverent touches he's included in his workspace. While I had fun delving into his world, the comic reads quite quickly, and I don't know if I can commit three and a half bucks to such a fleeting entertainment experience every month.
