    The short B story in the back is pretty great, too. It has a unique look and doesn't try to mimic the show, which is totally fine. To put it simply, buy Regular Show or I will face you in game of punchies and you will lose. Read Full Review

    I highly recommend picking this book up if you adore the show. Its just plain fun. The only drawback is the lack of content. For a first issue, I expected it to be jammed with more pages oh well! Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Aron Clark May 16, 2013

    The rundown? This new all ages series is written very closely to the television series but can still be appreciated as a fun and easy comic for new readers, mind you, with some adult humor. In terms of the art the team has got a good opener with equal credit going to the artist, colorist, and letterer. This series will have you laughing so act now and make Regular Show a part of your regular pull! Read Full Review

    Once again, BOOM! Studios shows how it's done -- hire good people to make licensed comics that offer their own experience unique to the medium and you'll have something that critics (like me) will enjoy and product that fans of the TV show (like me) won't feel like they wasted their money on. So I guess my favorite Cartoon Network licensed comic from BOOM! is whichever one I'm currently reading. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere May 17, 2013

    Having no knowledge prior of anything about this show, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the zaniness of this comic. It has originality, it can poke fun at weird concepts and the art really gets good when the most pit scene sets in. If the goal of this comic was to make me want to watch the show, all I can say is: mission accomplished. Read Full Review

    If you’re a fan of The Regular Show then there’s a lot to enjoy here. It reads like an episode of the show and that’s a very important thing. If you’re new to the show then you might still like it but it may come off a bit odd, but it does a good job to ease you in even if you get it or not. Hamboning!!!! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder May 15, 2013

    Regular Show Issue 1 is great, all-ages fun in the exact same vein as Tiny Titans or Adventure Time: excellent fun for kids while being clever enough to hook adults. Whether you're a fan of the show or want to see what it's all about, this is a great place to start and a strong opening from a creative team who clearly "get it" in terms of what the cartoon is about. While this particular issue feels a little derivative (again, it feels very strange to write that about a comic that is SO UTTERLY STRANGE), I definitely think there's enough of their own voices to take the story in completely different directions from the show.

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston May 16, 2013

    In the end,the “Regular Show” comic is just that: a comic aboutRegular Show.If you're not already a fan, it's not likely to win you over; but if you are, it's a silly comic with a funny characters, some great art, and a lot of heart. The biggest complaint would have to be the lack of Pops, the show's resident gentleman, but other than that it's a good title. The only other thing missing from this book? Read Full Review

    A few good laughs couldn't save the overall mediocrity of these stories at this price point, though die-hard fans will likely still enjoy it. Read Full Review
