    Cryptozoic Man #2 is not perfect, but there's so much that improves on the initial foundations that it easily garners attention and praise. To be truthful there are some off moments but nothing that hinders the ride. Recommended. Read Full Review

    It's a shame, but Cryptozoic Man is failing across the board. The simplest way to sum it up is to say that the creators are trying too hard to make this book clever, when clearly it is anything but. The premise is just far too complicated to keep it interesting, and the pacing is all over the place. If you're a hardcore Comic Book Men/anything-Kevin-Smith-related fan, then you could maybe see past its flaws, but I hold myself among said fans, and I still can't stand this book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Nov 27, 2013

    There's a fine line between a deep story with complex moving parts and sheer nonsense. Cryptozoic Man straddles that line for all it's worth. It still has some moments of brilliance though. If you're a big Comic Book Men Fan (and I am strangely enough) or a fan of really, really weird monster stories this one is for you. They need someone to polish this up badly. Hopefully the last two pull things together. I'd say it's a safe bet that this one will read much better when taken as a whole. Read Full Review

    The artwork is good. The writing and the story are terrible. There is nothing redemptive about them. I am a fan of the comic book men, but this book wouldn't have gotten anything but laughed out of the room if not created by them.
