    This is the start to what is going to be a great series. It’s awesome to see Hawaiian Dick back, and I am so excited to see what’s going to happen when Mike gets to Hawaii. If you’re as excited as I am, keep reading to see what happens! Read Full Review

    I don't know that old detective stories will ever be for everyone, but if you've ever enjoyed the genre, you've a fine chance of enjoying this one, too. As I said at the start, I'm happy to have been introduced to the series, as this little taste left me wanting more. I'll be anxiously awaiting issue 2, and likely checking out the previous stories too. Read Full Review

    "Aloha, Hawaiian Dick" #1 is a welcomed introduction to the uninitiated. Moore knows his genre, loves his protagonist, and masterfully has fun setting up the next set piece. It's the equivalent of doing your summer reading on a beach chair in Maui while sipping on a daiquiri. If you like Elmore Leonard novels then this pulpy private eye adventure is just your style.

    "Aloha, Hawaiian Dick" #1 is either a strong return or an intriguing introduction; it works either way. Moore obviously has a lot of fun in this world, with these characters, and with the situations they find themselves in. Though it's earlier work from Jake Wyatt, it still hums with a fine energy and vibe. It's an all-around cool little comic revving up to take off in a moment. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of reverence for mid-century crime fiction here. But that reverence never parts to reveal a unique identity. None of the rote dialog translates to insight nor does it earn any interest on the part of the reader. Read Full Review

    Welcome return to the Hawaiian Dick universe, BCM fantastic loser gumshoe Byrd. Reads like a 70's detective show. My biggest problem with this issue is i missed Steven Griffin's art, he had a great mood to his art style. Jacob Wyatt was still very good but maybe could have used a colorist, the Coloring was really in your face. Sean Dove Cover is Excellent! The Back up was very good Jason Armstrong has the Tiki Noir feel to his art style.
    The previous issues in the series had a Blue Hawaii soundtrack theme to me this issue was more Pepper inspired.
