Pure fun! Pure flavor!

    This is a fantastic issue that's definitely for anyone who's a fan of this kind of really busy, gritty, but vibrant artwork. The storyline is a bit crazy and unrealistic, but that's kind of the point of the book"to get into another reality. It's a really immersive book that I have such high hopes for. If you like the sound of it, make sure to grab a copy at your local comic book shop! Read Full Review

    A high-octane neon-drenched acid trip that feels like an underground punk zine, "Grrl Scouts" is unlike anything else out there. Read Full Review

    Creator and Writer Jim Mahfood (Generation X Underground Special, Clerks) does a charming job showing the seedy underbelly of the drug scene, with harmonious tidbits from the strip clubs. Mix in Justin Stewart's (Jesus Hates Zombies, Miami Vice Remix) coloring and lettering with a dash of Carmen Acosta's (Henchgirl, Young Justice) design expertise and you're in for one helluva ride. Enjoy!!! And tune in for issue #2 to see what's up with those damn socks. Read Full Review

    I love when I find a book that comes out of nowhere, a book that I have no concept of before I start reading. I feel like I've been getting more and more of them recently, especially from Image. They are consistently putting out the kind of books I gravitate toward, and Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks is definitely another one of them. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will now seek out more of Mahfood's work. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins May 17, 2017

    An obvious spiritual descendent of Tank Girl and respectfully so. A wild thrill ride that is unrestrained and unapologetic. Truly an acolyte of gonzo psychedelia. As your attorney, I advise you to take more art. Read Full Review
