    Dodge City #1 is just simply an excellent read. I cannot wait for the next issue to figure out where the series will go. I haven't enjoyed a non-Superhero series like this in a long time. There is anelement of “fun” that I found while reading which is still picking at me. Here's hoping the series continues to run as amazingly as this issue. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Rachel Freeman Mar 7, 2018

    Josh Trujillo has created some wonderful characters, I can already tell. And I love the fact that there are several panels where Abril and Toms only speak in Spanish without a translation. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 7, 2018

    Lots of action and a great cast of characters has me coming back for more of this series. BOOM! seems to have found magic with their sports focused comics which bring the popular manga genre to western audiences. This series, as well as Fence, stand out for their focus on characters and their ability to deliver action that doesn't involve people in spandex punching each other. BOOM! is ahead of the curve when it comes to western comic trends and here, they're leading the pack once again. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 7, 2018

    Dodge City #1 had a solid start, with potential for much more that there is to learn about the world of dodgeball. This creative team chose an interesting approach that we haven't seen before, and that might be the best thing that this book has going for it. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Lindsey Bass Mar 6, 2018

    This is only the first issue of Dodge City by Josh Trujillo; and he managed to immediately catch our attention while giving us some background story. This sets the tone and pace for books going forward. The target audience is younger, but this appears to be a book good for all ages. It’s important for everyone to see a diverse group of individuals working together for a common goal. In this case that goal just happens to be winning a game of dodgeball. Read Full Review

    Dodge City #1 is a welcome addition to the relatively few books about sports -- even if it is ostensibly about organized dodgeball. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 13, 2018

    While the characters of Dodge City are great, Im left struggling to be invested in the plot and conflict. Thats a pretty big problem, but if off-beat sports stories are your thing, Dodge City could still scratch that particular itch for you. Plus, McGee and Peers art is great, so there are some things going for this book. Personally, I can tentatively recommend it. Read Full Review
