    Jenny Zero #1 is jumping into the the pond filled with other Kaiju fighting comics. It turns out, that in all the ways of magic, that pond can just keep expanding to fit in all the monsters and those other giants who fight the monsters. While this story does not have the loveable main character like Big Girls and does not have the incredibly bloody splash pages like Ultramega, this book, has a complicated protagonist and a meta-commentary worth thinking about for days, weeks and months to come. Bring on the monsters! Read Full Review

    GWW - Joseph Gilmore May 5, 2021

    As far as comic heroes go, Jenny Zero is as unconventional as it gets. Depraved and unhinged, Jenny can be best described as Paris Hilton meets Commando " and I, for one, am here for all of it. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 5, 2021

    Jenny Zero is off to an interesting start with what we get here and I'm definitely interested in seeing where it goes. There's an easy familiarity coming from my background and I really like the visual design of it which is going to make it quite enjoyable even if the story doesn't hold up. But there's a lot of potential here so far and plenty of craziness that can be drawn on for more going by what we see here. Some of the dialogue makes me cringe a bit but there are some fun things in the mix as well. Not a bad start at all and certainly plenty to bring people back to see more of it. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Noelle Reyes Apr 15, 2021

    Jenny Zero #1 is a fun adventure that captures the chaotic glee of slaying monsters, partying hard, and teenage recklessness. Following Jenny's shaken and imperfect attempt to become a hero, this is pure over-the-top kaiju action. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Apr 14, 2021

    When all is said and done, Jenny Zero #1 delivers a tale that, while told well, doesnt do enough to make it stand out. But if you are looking for a solid sci-fi tale about a hard-living hero who has to fight giant monsters, this will certainly scratch that itch. Read Full Review

    If you’re looking to try out a new kaiju series, absolutely give Jenny Zero a shot. I feel it’s a series that needs a moment to stretch its legs before stomping its way into your pull list. It’s an intriguing tale for sure and I’ll be happily checking out the next issue to see what direction the creative team will take. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Josh Rathbun May 5, 2021

    Im not big on Jenny Zero #1. I really wanted to like it because whats not to like about some bad-ass gal and her bad-ass gun just gunning down big critters? Sadly, I think the first issue (possibly) doesnt do the main character much justice and just traps her as another edgy loose cannon with a chip on her shoulder the size of the world. That said, theres definitely a character secret that reveals itself at the end thats got me interested in what's to come. Read Full Review
