    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Mar 15, 2017

    I won't lie, Head Lopper is a violent book. Yes, it's in a fun cartoon style, and in the vein of shows like Samurai Jack and Adventure Time as I mentioned before, but there is well, obviously, head lopping, and quite a bit of blood. Somehow, the book is still one of the prettiest things I have ever seen. That's a testament to how good Maclean and Bellaire are. I loved the first four issues, and I loved this as well. This issue showed there is no sign of stopping with Head Lopper, and I cannot wait for the next three issues of this arc. The first chapter as Maclean calls it of “The Crimson Tower” is fantastic, original, and so much damn fun. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Patrick Hellen Mar 15, 2017

    This is not your standard super-hero fare, or a Conan knock off trying to be funny - this is a deep and layered world, filled with hilarious characters, a bearded ass-kicker, and his witch-head, which tries to ruin everything. Just pure fun. Read Full Review
