    THE KINGS OF THE WASTELAND is an overall decent attempt at telling an old tale in a fresh, new way. With a more focused effort on dialogue and some added depth to the characters, this series has the potential to be gripping. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Aug 4, 2015

    The story is set in an apocalyptic future where animals have gained the ability to speak, use tools and interact with one another after a referenced explosion that we still don't know much about. The animals have increased their size to that of humans, so picture Ninja Turtles as a reference. Jacob is on the prowl for Hunter the Tiger, a "King of the Wasteland" who Jacob feels is responsible for the deaths of his family mentioned above. It's pretty straight forward and although I did feel a connection to Jacob, the supporting cast don't feel as fleshed out. Despite its issues, Kings of the Wasteland is a decent first issue from a new talent, and that is always fun to see. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jack Johnston Aug 20, 2015

    Overall The Kings of The Wasteland has a long way to go if it wants to make a name for itself, it is an interesting enough premise but unfortunately the characters are all very bland in the first issue and the action comes off as clunky. Usually in these sort of stories it is the world that is the most interesting facet but we're told very little of it here and the outlook on learning any more in the future looks bleak. The series may well improve as it continues on, if it finds its own flavour, but right now, in my opinion, it is just very bland and I often view that less favourably than something which was experimental but not well executed.
