    Adventure and the supernatural create fun and terrors in this exploit of the Lobster. Why can't this be a monthly? Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    The script itself moves the plot forward and is easy to follow. We get a few surprises in this issue that I won’t spoil for you all, but I will say that they make this issue well worth the read. This miniseries has one chapter left, so catch up before the next issue closes out the mystery! Read Full Review

    This issue hangs on to the Fleischer-inspired narrative we gushed about last week while firmly planting itself in the bedrock of the universe around it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Arron Ferguson Jul 5, 2016

    Lobster Johnson: Metal Monsters of Midtown Issue #2 (of 3)is a playful pulp romp full of mystery & intrigue wedged nicely between, presumably, two issues of madcap action. Not for everyone, but glorious good fun for those willing to go along with the ride. Its lack of real depth holds it back from the 5-star rating a similar Hellboy book would have got, but this is brilliant fun none-the-less. Read Full Review

    It's a good book, but a rushed one. If you really like Lobster Johnson, this is your moment, but it's not going to bring in any new readers. Read Full Review

    It remains to be seen how the mini will wrap itself up, but I'm unconvinced the destination will suddenly become worth the journey. I can't help but feel the issues could work much better as a single, judiciously edited-down, double-sized issue. As it is, Metal Monsters of Midtown is entertaining, but frustratingly paced.
