    IGN - Daniel Crown Apr 1, 2009

    Again, there is certainly nothing challenging here, but that's not really the intent of the book. For better or worse, Alan Porter harkens back to the film multiple times, likely giving his audience exactly what they are asking for. If you have a kid who enjoys Pixar's original movie, then this issue should serve as a no-brainer. It's cute. It's somewhat endearing. And it should do just enough to keep your child's attention.

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Apr 2, 2009

    Ultimately, this is a readable and pleasant comic that's particularly well-suited for younger readers. It might not provide much food for thought for adults and it might not win over any readers who aren't already fans of the original Cars movie, but the storytelling is clear, the artwork is attractive, and the writing serves the story perfectly well. If you have children, I can recommend this as a good title to offer them. Read Full Review

    Some of Pixar's other licenses will certainly read better on the printed page, but with the fan base out there for "Cars," I have little doubt that this title will race home with fans. While I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did "Incredibles," I'm far from disappointed in this line. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 6, 2009

    It's kinda cute in it's "Say one thing, show something different" bits, though, and overall I suspect it will hit well enough for the target audience. Read Full Review
