    Comics Bulletin - Mike Nickells Oct 1, 2019

    Jorge Monlongos art expertly captures all the awkwardness of Napoleon and the characters around him, while the writing of siblings Carlos and Alejandro hits the tone and personality of this group of teenagers perfectly. The mystery twist to this coming of age comedy makes for a highly entertaining opening issue to this four part mini-series. There are five different covers including three photo covers with still shots from the original movie for collectors who enjoy variants. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Edward Wendt Oct 7, 2019

    Those familiar with the original film might remember the post-credits scene involving the marriage between Kip and LaFawnduh. This part of the movie was added onto the original after the studio saw that the movie was going viral. It was criticized at the time for lacking the overall spirit of the film, and fans seemed a bit perplexed that the studio didn't get what had made the movie so special to begin with. In short, it was zany, but not in character. The same can, unfortunately, be said for Napoleon Dynamite #1. The creative team is evidently working hard trying to capture the spirit of the film, but it is such a hard task that the issue falls a little flat. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Chris Egan Sep 23, 2019

    Fans of these characters will enjoy their return, but it offers nothing more than a sequel for sequel's sake. It's not bad, but there is a reason why the movie was a cult hit and anything beyond that like, 2012's Napoleon Dynamite: The Animated Series, is destined to be forgotten. Read Full Review

    This is a bland adaptation of a fun movie. Read Full Review
