    No matter if you're a fan of the original movie, or have only caught the Cobra Kai series on Youtube, this book is gonna be a great compliment to the story of Johnny Lawrence. Is it worth the $4? I'd say so. It's definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Manuel Gomez Oct 9, 2019

    Cobra Kai is a fun book and well worth it to just have more Kagan McCloud on a printed page, once again drawing martial arts. If you loved the movie and like the show, you'll totally be into this. It's fast and fun. Throw in McCloud's art and you have a book that should be checked out. Read Full Review
