    I do not know what just happened to me but I think I might have liked probably the exact right response to Ludocrats, a new comic that is like the characters it stars a perfectly ludicrous and not boring event. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Mar 24, 2020

    Although its characters behave in unrestrained manners and constantly try to outdo each other in the matters of eccentricity, Ludocrats #1 is a comic that's fairly easy to follow. Its focus is two main characters and a variety of visual and verbal jokes. Instead of relying on boring exposition (This is actually a plot point), Gillen, Rossignol, Stokely, and Bonvillain throw you straight in the middle of the world without a life vest. This is an admirable storytelling point, and Ludocrats #1 is a true party of a comic that you should safely try to acquire when it's released. Read Full Review

    Rogues Portal - Ben Boruff Apr 1, 2020

    So if you like stories that feel like a 1990s Jim Carrey acting out Hieronymus Bosch's fever dream, you will enjoy The Ludocrats. It has violence, fourth wall breaks, and a character named Voldigan the Perfidious. If nothing else, comics like these help us appreciate the silliness of life and the value of spontaneity. For those reasons, I recommend it. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Apr 1, 2020

    Despite its scattershot plotting,The Ludocrats #1gets by on its absurd charm and reality distorting artwork. If you enjoyMonty Python and the Holy GrailorRick and Morty,then this comic is for you. Hopefully, future issues will have a more coherent plot. Read Full Review
