    Maestros #1 was not what I was expecting it to be before I started reading. It's a great story filled with great art. The characters might be a little lacking as of yet, but it's only the first issue and I'm into it already so I'm down with wherever this thing's going. I am hooked. I loved this book.

    Comicosity - Chris Campbell Oct 18, 2017

    The mark of a good story teller is to present the reader with something they have encountered before as something new and interesting. Skroce has done this with the first issue and the reader will be left excited to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Oct 18, 2017

    I recommend this book, as long as you do not mind a little swearing, a little violence, a little nudity, and a lot of craziness. If you like books like Head Lopper, or other out there original stories that are trying to do their own thing, and incredible art, then give Maestros a shot. Its insane, in all the right ways.

    Bounding Into Comics - Jorge Arena Sep 11, 2017

    Maestros #1 is more than just fantasy, sci-fi, or even a story. It's a fun journey into a whole new world of magic and chaos. If you're a fantasy fanatic than you should definitely pick this up; it's definitely geared towards fantasy fans. The issue is a great beginning for Maestros; however,I do hope that there is more character development as the series moves forward. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Oct 22, 2017

    Sumptuous visuals make this adult fantasy blast into the stratosphere. The story took an unnecessary turn to the past, but that's just my preference for linear storytelling. This is definitely a book to follow, but keep it out of the hands of younger comic readers! Read Full Review

    You may think you've read every variation on the "ordinary kid discovers they're part of a secret magical community" fantasy trope, but Maestros manages to put plenty of new spin on an old favorite. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Pierre Brown Oct 18, 2017

    Gore, foul language, comedy, and a being who makes small dicks big makes this series worth checking out even though this storyline will remind you of like"at least 6 different fantasy plots. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Oct 25, 2017

    Maestros #1 is an entertaining, yet flawed comic that shows much potential. The mediocre script is elevated by the outstanding art. While it may not be the most impressive debut issue, the visuals by Skroce and Stewart make this one series worth keeping an eye on for at least the first few issues. Read Full Review
