    Comic Bastards - Allen Wiggs Jun 23, 2016

    Let's talk quick economics here, which is literally the only downside of this book. The comic is 64 pages, they are 64 gorgeous pages (excluding the two bio pages) but those 64 pages cost nearly twenty dollars. I know comics are expensive, they are a luxury item, it just feels a little too expensive. I assume there will be an edition later that is cheaper, buy that. Unless you are a huge Gaiman, Moon, or Ba fan, which I wouldn't blame you for being any of those. In that case you probably already bought it. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jun 22, 2016

    The collaboration of the trio of creators provides a story that covers all the frailties of human interaction. There is a certain sadness prevalent in the book; the sadness of experiences long gone for the girls, the sadness that maybe Vic is pretyy much how Vic will be for the rest of his life. Then there is Enn, who hears poetry, who listens and despite his best intentions, remains alone. Still having been where Enn is, I think he will be fine. Read Full Review

    Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba, manage to create a strangely unique place in the everyday world that Gaiman has created. I will admit I loved the brilliant elegance of the "poem," despite the strangeness of the origin. The artwork manages to highlight some of the stranger but subtle parts of the story well and continues the two's amazing work. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Jun 23, 2016

    So yeah. HTTTGAP is really, really good, the exact kind of thing I look for in a Neil Gaiman story. Its got what I want, yet it changes just enough to make it stand apart from his other works. Its normal until it isnt, and really, isnt that what we want from any story? Read Full Review

    I would recommend How to Talk to Girls at Parties to fans of supernatural and speculative fiction, readers who enjoy a little unsolved mystery, and of course any and all fans of Gaiman's writing and Moon and B's artwork. How to Talk to Girls at Parties takes something as mundanely intimidating as a teenager attempting to talk to a member of the opposite sex at a house party and turns it into a strange and unforgettable occurrence that no one involved could ever forget or even attempt to explain.

    Impulse Gamer - Dana Anderson Jun 26, 2016

    Overall I found this to be a pleasant and whimsical read. Even though its a simple story with minimal progression with its story arc, it is still fun and quite relatable. We can all connect with once being young and nervous around the opposite sex and feeling almost overwhelmed at being thrust into daunting situations. I also feel like this edition of How to Talk to Girls at Parties is much more engaging with the addition of the art from Moon and B. Their art really does add to the whole experience and it works lovely with Gaimans story. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Nicole T. Feleo Aug 9, 2016

    Although some critics say that this particular piece could have been more" more of what? who knows" I am confident that the illustrations and lettering, along with the story itself, was compiled to its greatest potential. Rest assured, the triplet has done justice to the original and if you find yourself at the wrong party where you were not invited and you meet a universe or poem, you should " 1. Properly listen to girls when they speak, and 2. Just go home. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Jared Leatzow Jun 27, 2016

    How To Talk to Girls at Parties is a good story, but it is short. Awkward young men in high school will be able to identify with Enn and his struggles to connect with the opposite sex. It also has a cool sci-fi element in it as well. That being said it is old material and might not seem worth the money to some. I wish the story would have been expanded. There are a lot of unanswered questions. Read Full Review
