    In many ways, this book reminds me of Shirtless the Bear Hunter book in that it has a crazy off the wall hook. If you think that this issue is bonkers, then future issues will pretty much take it several notches higher. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Michael Thao Jun 9, 2021

    The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton is, at times, surprisingly dramatic and scrappy yet incredibly heartfelt. The mystery surrounding the death of Trigger Keaton is the least interesting part in a book whose characters quickly won me over. They're woefully inept yet lovable, and they steal the show in this first issue. But above all, Six Sidekicks is simply just a hilarious and witty book that will no doubt bring a smile to your face. This is the first I've read of Kyle Starks and Chris Schweizer's work, and it definitely won't be the last. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jun 6, 2021

    I'll consider it a miracle if Kyle Starks and Chris Schweizer manage to avoid a lawsuit or a firm punch from the third fist concealed under Chuck Norris' beard. With any luck that legal shutdown and lethal strike won't arrive until after we've seen the rest of The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton. This is one of the funniest comics I've read in some time.
