In case anyone was wondering, Crush is doing just fine, actually. Sure, she recently walked away from her classmates at the Roy Harper Titans Academy and effectively quit being a
Teen Titan in a blaze of glory. And okay, her relationship with her too-good-to-be-true girlfriend Katie is kind of on the rocks, if you want to get all technical about it. Oh, and she recently found out Lobo’s in space jail, but that’s cool, because he’s the worst. OKAY, maybe Crush has some STUFF, but that doesn’t mean she’s gonna DO anything about it, like actually go to space and confront her dad and all her problems, because everything is FINE. more

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Jun 9, 2021

    Crush and Lobo #1 is a ton of fun. Every aspect of the book is wonderfully done, and it's completely accessible by readers that don't have previous experience with Crush as a character.  Read Full Review

    Crush and Lobo #1 walks exaggeration, self-reference, drama and comedy lines gracefully, as the set-up for this gay angst drama comes directly for us with the strongest vibes. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Benjamin Milne Jun 2, 2021

    In conclusion, Crush & Lobo #1 absolutely crushes it in it's first issue! Engaging characters with immediate development and chaotic action with bold real-world consequences gives this series all the potential to be a gut bustingly bombastic ride with room for thrashingly relatable emotional baggage as it proceeds.

    GWW - Nick Friar May 31, 2021

    Crush & Lobo #1 has a high tempo, and that's the result of Amancay Nahuelpan's artwork. While Crush is talking to the readers about her life, she's fighting off villains and dealing with other messes throughout the story. That's how it should be with a Lobo book " get things rolling right out the gates and don't slow down. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 1, 2021

    This isn't a totally smooth first issue, but DC and Tamaki deserve praise for breaking the mold with LGBT leads in a similar way as Midnighter. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 1, 2021

    Bonvillain uses bold, brilliant colors to highlight Nahuelpan's detailed drawings. The character expressions and forms are emotionally connective. This is a well crafted issue that is engaging and transportive. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Perry Jun 1, 2021

    Crush & Lobo #1 is a fun introduction to DC's next big father/daughter adventure. It isn't perfect, but that's not what it promises. Its promise from the get-go is fun, wild adventure, and readers will find that in droves. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Jamie Lovett Jun 2, 2021

    Crush & Lobo #1 does an excellent job of entirely investing readers in Crush's story and the internal conflict that will almost certainly manifest as external butt-kicking in the issues to come. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Jun 5, 2021

    Crush and Lobo #1 wouldn't sell me on the series based on the events of the issue alone. But, the writing is good and the characterization of Crush especially, makes me want to give this series another shot. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 1, 2021

    This first issue of Crush & Lobo looked great but seemed intent on turning Crush into the next Harley Quinn... or the next Lobo.  That's a shame because she is so much more than that.  I hope Mariko Tamaki can turn things around starting the next issue because I can't recommend this one.
