    Comic Bastards - Jun 21, 2017

    Flat-out, I loved this book. It's just fun and ridiculous and totally over the top. I wish there was a little more in the way of character development, or even a pause to explore some of the wild idea and imagery Mahfood lays out for us. But I'm not really complaining about it. I love the energy in this book. I love the little side jokes and commentary from background characters. I love that Mahfood just seems to be having a whole hell of a lot of fun with this book. And that translates to me, to us readers. It works. The Grrl Scouts are just fucking badasses, man. Read Full Review

    A book which is an art form onto itself. However, the writing is really for people with a juvenile sense of humor. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Jun 30, 2017

    Perhaps the problem is me as Im looking for too much in a stoner comedy about magic socks that have traveled throughout history. Looking at Jim Mahfoods brash art you can see a style that is creative and unquestionably its own. It will not take long to know if this book is for you or not, and I freely admit it is not in my wheelhouse. Still, that does not excuse some of the glaring story problems that stop this from being an enjoyable comic. Read Full Review
