    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 5, 2013

    There is something about this series that sets your imagination on fire. It reminds you of why comics exist and the simpler times of animation; animation that focused on story and style rather than action figures and time slots. Hopefully Herobear has found a lasting new home at Boom! And Kunkel will produce more one-shots or approve others to help on the franchise. At the very least he could produce one new issue a year and I would be there for it. If you’ve never had the pleasure of checking out this amazing all-ages series then definitely grab this issue. I’m betting Boom will reprint the first volume as well so that even more people have expose to this great series, but we’ll have to see. Read Full Review

    If you have kids in your life or are a kid at heart, you need to read HEROBEAR AND THE KID. Mike Kunkel is back with the characters he created and all we can say is it's about time. This is a book great for everyone. It may be suitable for kids but that doesn't mean it's only for kids. Comics don't have to be full of despair, suspense and terror. Comics can be fun and enjoyable. If you can't appreciate the nature of this comic, you might want to schedule an appointment with a cardiologist to see if there's a cure for your blackened heart. Read Full Review

    At $4 its a little pricey for an all-ages comic (although that seems to be the going rate for these now). I enjoy Kunkel's black and white style, with flashes of red (which actually remind me of some of Matt Wagner‘s far darker Grendel stories). Worth a look. Read Full Review
