    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey Sep 5, 2019

    I truly wasn't sure what I would be getting with Battlepug #1. Now that I've read it, I'm not sure what I expected, but I like it. The entire issue is so tongue-in-cheek and fun that it's impossible not to smile while reading it. Clearly a love letter to Conan the Barbarian and old-school fantasy, it works on its own as well. If you're in the market for silly, adult-themed fantasy then this is for you. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Sep 4, 2019

    Irreverent and absurd, Battlepug delivers the satire and the humor in a battle worthy of legends. It is silly and weird, but all about poking fun at the things that need to be mocked. Read Full Review

    "Battlepug" #1 sets up a good antagonist and dives right back into the world of the last Kimmerian with enough gravity and humor to succeed as a first issue. Read Full Review
