    Altogether the blend of a great script and bold yet simplistic art make this an issue #1 worth picking up, and a series to look forward to. Read Full Review

    At the end of the day, this series, much like its stars, is likely to be something of an acquired taste. If youre a fan of cheesy gags, wild action and little-to-no characterisation or logic, then this is definitely going to be right up your street. Utterly, utterly bonkers. But in a good way, I guess?

    If you have a choice between the four covers IDW offers, I'd personally go with the one done by Cory Smith (art) and Peer (colors). Smith make's Bebop and Rocksteady look about as badass as possible. Read Full Review

    It isn't bad, but if the creative team can sharpen their voice and let the visuals do more of the storytelling in future issues then this could be something more. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Aug 7, 2018

    There are things to like in Hit the Road #1, but as a whole the issue feel like an unnecessary cash grab. IDW appears to want this duo to make the transition from villainous sidekicks to lovable anti-heroes akin to Marvel's Deadpool or DC's Harley Quinn. The difference is that those characters danced along the lines of morality from the very beginning, whereas Bebop and Rocksteady have always been proud baddies. Seeing them attempting to transition, as ill-fated a decision as it may be, reads as a cheap gimmick. There really is no reason to pick this book up other than to fulfill completionist urges.
