    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Sep 3, 2014

    Concrete Park: R-E-S-P-E-C-T #1 is an engaging start which shows a lot of promise. It took one issue to win me over and I can't wait for the next one. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Sep 3, 2014

    This is Blaxploitation style in a science fiction setting and it works. Puryear and Alexander have created a fun, bleak world for their characters to traverse, and it reads like nothing else. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Sep 8, 2014

    The artwork compliments the story's surroundings and the characters have a boastfulness that makes it easy to either like or dislike them. I'm always a fan of comics where the creator writes and draws the book because you're virtually guaranteed that everything will be in sync. The desert planet felt hot and coarse as two suns orbit it's space and the dialog that contains its share of urban slang somehow fits in with the story, rather nicely I might add. If I was a betting man, I'd venture to guess that this series will find itself in the critically acclaimed realm sooner or later." Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Sep 3, 2014

    Concrete Park is a good read that has a very cinematic flow to it. It would be great to see some more unpredictable events in the issues to come. It concluded with a rather clich cliff hanger. It would be great to see the intensity of the action scenes utilised to their full potential; leading to cliff hangers that will leave reader salivating at the mouth. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 3, 2014

    I'm glad to see this series is back and I'm definitely looking forward to getting bigger chunks of the story at once. Hopefully this first issue gets the kinks out of the system because I know that once this series gets its rhythm there's no stopping. We've already seen as much with the previous chapter of the story. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Nevin Jones Sep 3, 2014

    Even though a prison planet isn't the most original idea, Concrete Park captured my full attention quickly. The characters and world are interesting, and Isaac seems like a character the reader can root for in all of the gang chaos. There's still a lot of ground to explore with this world, and I look forward to reading more. Read Full Review
