    Kirkman and Howard have a really good comic on their hands here. If you spent the mornings of your childhood watching cartoons and your afternoons playing with the action figures from those cartoons, you need to read this. Read Full Review

    The situation with Dexter's father is a sad one, and it gives the characters a real tangible goal with real stakes beyond those of the crazy monsters and supervillains they have to fight. Perhaps even more important, though, is the way the Dexter/SD relationship is painted. Although SD is the big gun and the title character, he's most definitely the sidekick in this scenario. Dexter is our star, Dexter is our hero, and that places this book firmly in the camp of such good company as Marvel's Sentinel series or Mike Kunkel's Herobear and the Kid. It's a child's wish fulfillment fantasy with some real intelligence to it, and that's exactly the way to play a book like this to make it work. Read Full Review

    With Bruce and Sarah Kingston " government-sanctioned mechanical engineer-types - on hand to modify Super Dinosaur's harness (not to mention create new variations on the harness) it seems like just a matter of time before the brand expands to toys and other merchandise and media. That's right, not only is this a great all ages read, it's also a toyetic property waiting to wring your wallet dry. We're three issues in, but those issues shouldn't be too hard to find if you know where to look. Of course another option would be to just jump in with this issue right here. Read Full Review
