    While there isn't a lot going on here beyond variations on the same joke, "Herogasm" #1 is a brisk and entertaining read. Hopefully the amount of time spent on mining "superpeople having lewd sex" here means the plot will pick up next issue. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson May 31, 2009

    McCrea and Burns offer exaggerated, twisted visuals that are in keeping with the excesses of the plot and characters, though it's sketchy at times, lacking in detail when it comes to the peripheral players. The thing is that this story - meant to be an exploration of morals (or a lack thereof) - seems to call for a darker, more cynical tone, but the art is quite bright. That's of course attributable in part to Tony Avina's colors, but the line art is almost devoid of darkness and shadows. It's understandable, given the tropical backdrop, but it feels as though a darker mood is still called for here. Read Full Review

    The artwork was uneven. The proportions are off and the work feels expedited. The best part of the artwork is the scenery. The backgrounds and vehicles are all well rendered hinting that perhaps the artist is the wrong choice for a series thats focused on the human body and what goes on between consented adults.
