    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 27, 2017

    In short, this book is a reminder of why I love comics: Not just cool corporate characters, not just high-profile super-artists, not just the major motion pictures they inspire. Corey Lewis has a unique voice, a deceptively simple looking art style, but most of all an understanding of how to make a series of static images with words stuck on 'em grab the reader and make them hold on for all they're worth. Sun Bakery #1 comes highly recommended, and you need to sit down and digest it all as each story provides something different, but they're all energetic, entertaining and above all, fun.

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Feb 20, 2017

    Sun Bakery #1 takes itself seriously only insomuch as the act of creating is refreshingly pure. In all its schizophrenic glory, Corey Lewis has crafted a celebration of the acts of creating and storytelling themselves. Theres an honest sense that anything can happen and will happen; an effect that blurs the fear and invigoration of being completely out of control. Do not hesitate to give yourself over to the frenzy that is Sun Bakery and enjoy every minute of the subsequent face melting. Read Full Review

    All in all, Lewis embraces some of the niches of today's nerd-meets-pop culture and paints for us a vivid portrayal of these fantasies that we would totally love to live out. I mean, who wouldn't want to be a space explorer or walk around with Katana 7.6? We'll live vicariously through these comics, Lewis. It'll be exciting to see where SUN BAKERY goes and what new story-gems will be introduced. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Kenia Santos Jan 31, 2017

    Overall, Sun Bakery is a book with a very particular sense of style that is likely to offer something to most shonen manga lovers in its 49 pages.I would only come back for issue #2 to find out what happens with the kids in Bat Rider. The stories didn't quite connect with me, but it's probably because I'm not the correct age or this young at heart. You will have to see how it works for you. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 26, 2017

    Bits and Pieces:Very ambitious for one creators undertaking with all the art and story being done by one person, but it comes off as more of a check list inspired imitation rather than a Shonen inspired inspiration. The art is varying and great in places, but the story is very lacking and sometimes better defined in the synopses than the story themselves. With one story being actually interesting and one basically fan fiction it's hard to see much reason to follow-up with this in the future. Read Full Review
