    I hope the rest of the series builds up and pays off as well as it was set up. If so, then, sales willing, I'll happily be waiting for the return of the King for more Bubba Ho-Tep adventures. Read Full Review

    This may mature to be a slow build to greatness, but based on my initial assessment of this title I may pass on the next. Read Full Review

    This comic book is strange but fun. I had a good time as I turned each page and found at least one laugh per page and some horrific goings on. Add this one to the ranks of Evil Dead, Zombieland and Return of the Living Dead as a classic in the horror/comedy genre. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - James Turner May 15, 2018

    I feel I'm coming across a little harsher than I mean to be. At its core, Bubba Ho-Tep and The Cosmic Blood-Suckers is a perfectly passable first entry into a new series. It sets up intrigue, characters, and even begins to build a fun world " the colonel's ship, the Nocturne, adds a particularly nice touch. However, it does little else within the confines of its limited page count. Will I read the next one? Hell yes. Did I have a great time with this first issue? Eh. Read Full Review

    "Bubba Ho-Tep and The Cosmic Blood-Suckers" #1 trips over its trippy concept in this first issue. It should be more fun than it is. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 15, 2018

    Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Bloodsuckers #1 is a painfully serious and, consequently, dull read. It wants to be a story of an old and war-weary Elvis in the autumn of a life fighting monsters, but the premise is too ridiculous to take this seriously. Im not saying such a tale is impossible to tell; its just that this one doesnt succeed in doing so. As such, I must say to give this comic a hard pass this Wednesday. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jun 10, 2018

    This had the perfect foundation to build upon and it fails in every possible way. The humor is flat, the art terrible, the colors hit and miss, and the lettering a disappointment. Save your money and buy a copy of Bubba Ho-Tep. You'll be much more satisfied. A major disappointment. Read Full Review
