    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Dec 7, 2016

    The only concern I have for this book is that it has to eventually stop because all good things come to an end and eventually, the stories will repeat themselves. For now, we must bask in the glory of The Flintstones. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Avi Weinryb Dec 13, 2016

    Undoubtedly the most clever and enjoyable part of this book is when writer Mark Russell draws attention to the absurdity of a classic Flintstones trope; living creatures serving as household objects. If you are scratching your head, just think back to the classic Flintstones cartoon scenes of a birds beak serving as a record player needle, pausing to look at the audience and say something like Hey, its a living!. Well, in this issue, an armadillo bowling ball and a pygmy mammoth vacuum cleaner actually stop to commiserate about their mutual suffering and loneliness as indentured slaves. Its a brilliant bit. Is this my life?! Is this all I mean to the universe?! the little armadillo shouts to the heavens. It seems like every character is in full-on crisis mode in this bizarre take on a classic property. Its a yabba-dabba doo of a time. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Dec 12, 2016

    Overall, this issue may not be the series at its best, but for a comic that's so consistently high that's by no means a bad thing. Issue #6 is a little more simplistic than the rest have been, but it feels nicely cathartic and reassuring while being both absolutely hilarious and depressing as anything. If you like your laughs existential and full of dread with a slice of satire on the side, there really is no better book thanThe Flintstones. Words I never thought I'd say. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 7, 2016

    This book continues to hold a mirror up to society, but it's a weird mirror because everything in it is prehistoric. But it's like fake prehistoric. Like it's 20,000 BCE or whatever but they have televisions. It's sort of hard to explain. But this is a funny, well-made book that's also holds some stark truths for the reader. I think that's probably worth four bucks. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lead Sharp Dec 12, 2016

    Nothing about this is funny, it feels like it was created by a committee that thinks humour is how Arnold Schwarzenegger pronounces the name of his four by four and only the art saves it from being Garfield Summer Special bad. 0.1/5 Read Full Review
