    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 25, 2020

    Remender and Larosa have a fun thing going with The Scumbag. Its got a rhythm and pulse that feels fresh and unique even if its not aspiring to a whole lot more than a simple loser-saves- the-w0rld action story. Ernie continues to be appealing. The passion and the sharp-witted energy of Sister Mary adds a stylish contrast to Ernies comic grotesqueness. With the full reveal of the antagonistic Scorpions, the series is off into an appealing momentum. If Remender and Larosa can keep it from veering too far from the heart of the conflict, The Scumbag might be one of the better comics to be introduce in late 2020.  Read Full Review

    This is a great second issue. This feels like this is going to be a great long term series too. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 25, 2020

    Andrew Robinson does some brilliant, beautiful work with the art in this issue. Everything is perfectly exaggerated and outlandish giving the art a timeless, gritty feel to it. A great looking book. Read Full Review

    There's no doubt about it, this team is going full-on, unadulterated satire and the end result is probably the closest thing we'll ever get to an X-rated comic. It's clearly an 18+ book, and even then, it's not really even that safe for adults. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christa Harader Nov 30, 2020

    "The Scumbag" #2 tries a little too hard to be clever in its writing and ends up missing the mark. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Nov 25, 2020

    Overall, The Scumbag is trying to take down fascism while hypocritically reveling in the key characteristics of white supremacy's modern patron saint. If that wasn't bad enough, the characters are as flat as the art and story. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Theo Dwyer Dec 6, 2020

    The Scumbag #2 sees the bit get old - fast. What started out as an original gross-out comic becomes overdone satire in this 2nd issue. Read Full Review
