    Comics Crux - Nick Verissimo Oct 24, 2012

    This series is easily going to be one of my favourites going forward and I really hope that it does very well for itself.  Like Adventure Time, its definitely not something just for kids and feels like its on a path that will make all of this comedy based on references be a less prevalent means to tell jokes.  Bravest Warriors is pretty great you guys, so go get it before its too late!

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Oct 24, 2012

    The cupcake fight is worth the price of admission alone, but above and beyond that, Comeau and Holmes have a hit on their hands. This book is a brilliant combination of humour, fun, and whimsy that makes it a great time for readers of all ages and backgrounds. Bravest Warriors is sold out at the distributor level, so it might be hard to find yourself a copy, but if you can, you're in for a treat. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Raisa Dec 17, 2014

    The art was exceptionally colorful. The art style and font changed for every new story and I enjoyed them all. I especially enjoyed the diversity in the characters' designs. They were tall, short, thick, thin, light, dark, long-haired, or short-haired. Props to the artist. Ten out of ten. Overall I think the comichas tons of potential and could be used as an effective mechanism to bring in more viewers to the web show. I look forward to see it progress. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Andrea Speed Oct 24, 2012

    Theres lightheartedness and a constant sense of humor that causes this issue to just fly, and makes some of the clichs in a set up like this work really well. It doesnt re-invent the wheel, but I was surprised by how much I liked this. Younger readers should like this one a lot, and older readers should find it pretty damn charming as well.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Oct 24, 2012

    Get ready for adventures set in outer space. Based on the upcoming web animated series by Pendelton Ward, you can expect plenty of zany adventures and laughs when these teenage warriors set out to tackle absurd missions. We get a great introduction to the team and you can see the potential lying within the pages. As part of Kaboom!, Boom! Studios kids line, I'm not sure if it's completely an all age title. There isn't anything inappropriate but you might find yourself explaining the idea of Sexism to young readers. This series is set to deliver the kind of laughs and adventures we don't get to see in may comics and it has become a welcome addition to my pull list. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 2, 2016

    While the look of Bravest Warriors and it;s obvious connection to Adventure Time may lead you to think of this as a kiddie book, it's a bit more than that.  While this issue is complete character setup, it has the wit and references that are more adult friendly than I would have imagined.  I liked it enough to continue on with the series and I'll recommend it to anyone that is looking for a comic that only exists to have some goofy fun in a goofy universe with goofy characters.

    He writes toward children, but managed to make me stop and think about how such simple concepts still hold so much truth even in adult life. It was a great read and I'm looking forward to issue two! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Oct 25, 2012

    Yep. They defeat sexism and a banana is proud. If that last sentence seems like something you're into, you'll dig this book. It's fun and silly and a reminder that not everything has to be dark and brooding to be good. Read Full Review

    Comic Addicts - Akshay Dhar Oct 28, 2012

    Lost somewhere between absurdist humour, cleverness, extremely childish, surrealism and warm-fuzzy-fun, I'd say this is a good read when you want something upbeat to change the vibe in between all the intense stuff out there. I'm not entirely convinced I'd buy this every month as it's a little outside my wheel-house, but I enjoyed just this one issue enough that I'll definitely try a couple more and might even take a peek at Adventure Time sometime. The cupcake fight and lines like "If a baby giggles inside you, where does the giggle go?" are enough reason to give this book a shot. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Oct 26, 2012

    To a kid, of course, this should be pure catnip, and that is, after all, the audience Kaboom! is courting. The Adventure Time comic has almost instantly become an enormous success, spawning a couple of spinoffs with remarkable speed and reminding us all of a time when licensed kid's properties were the bread and butter of the comic book industry. Anything that can make inroads towards getting kids back to reading comics is to be welcomed with open arms, and Bravest Warriors should help continue that work nicely. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Meylikhov Oct 26, 2012

    So as far as introductions go, the main story is a poor foot to start off on. While pulling from the quirky web comic crowd certainly worked for the “Adventure Time” comic, it's just not the case with this book. It's lucky that the comic features a back-up strip by Ryan Pequin, however, because that's the closest thing we get to what you'd likely expect from a book with this title and cover. It actually features the Bravest Warriors being an off-brand of brave and warrior, and that's what you're paying to read. With eight different covers to the book — all but one of which giving the implication that this is a book about teens in space having adventures — with a solicit that implies you'll find a story of teens who “warp from galaxy to galaxy, saving alien races with the power of their… emotions,” you'd assume you'd get more than a muffin-off some TV watching.
