    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jun 27, 2017

    Looking for a Noir/Crime/Mystery comic with all types of fantasy creatures to boot well look no further than Blood Brothers #1 (of 4). Javier Caba and Fabian Rangel Jr. have crafted an entertaining series (that was apparently a successful Kickstarter before being picked up by Dynamite Entertainment) that will have you dying to read the next issue. Blood Brothers is a wonderful concept that really stretches the boundaries of the imagination, yes it throws you into the story without much explanation but that is also part of the mystery, we just have to trust the creators that everything will make sense and to sit back and enjoy the ride!

    When an Aztec skull is stolen from the local museum the police detectives are on the case which includes a little extra motivation as the mysterious skull has ties back to the pair's father. I'm curious to see where things go next. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 28, 2017

    While it's not a perfect issue, it is one of the best first issues I've read in many months. It's very successful in setting up the world and establishing the potential for future mini-series with different mysteries. A lot of stories try to do that, but rarely maintain the focus of what they're doing to ensure that a reader wants to come back for more. I will be looking forward to more Blood Brothers.

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jun 30, 2017

    'Blood Brothers: Hermanos De Sangre' manages to blend in Spanish phrases and words seamlessly making the interaction between brothers natural and realistic. Rangel and Cabaare solid pros with an indie spirit that remembers how entertaining comics can be. It's the start of a fun mysterious adventure worth taking. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 28, 2017

    Blood Brothers didn't knock me out and demand I come back for more but it laid out more than enough to bring me back for more. Rangel's script is solid and we get a good establishment of the two leads and the setting while leaving a lot of world building to be done still. Caba's artwork is distinctive without being distracting and he lays out some solid pages and has a good bit of fun with the character designs at times in the background. The leads stand out as well as I particularly like the grim look that Diego gets and there's a real charm with Gabriel that makes me grin when I see some of his expressions. There's plenty of potential here even with the familiarity and I'm curious to see where the team will take this book for its run. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Kevin Hamilton Feb 6, 2017

    Blood Brothers is a project that I hope to see more of. There are small things about this first issue that seem weird to me. Mainly the lack of explaining character motivation and decisions. I would like to see the writer take more time and flesh out more dialogue that explains more about the characters besides that one was raised in luxury, and the other on the streets. So hopefully in future issues that gets better addressed. That said, this story has so much potential. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Jun 30, 2017

    You have to give Fabian Rangel Jr. and Javier Caba credit for being original. I doubt you will find another book out there today quite like this one. Cabas art is a big standout. He uses the basic panel grid but his coloring and cartooning are especially strong. That may be the best reason to continue with this series. Outside of some of his opening issue jitters, the heart of this book is strong. Dynamite is quietly building a lot of original creator own books this past year. Read Full Review
