Legendary Comics transports you to A Town Called Dragon. On the surface it seems like your average all-American tourist trap, but this snow-covered town hides a burning secret. After centuries of lying buried within the depths of an icy mountain, the world's last dragon egg finally hatches - endangering modern life as we know it. Now an unlikely group of dangerously unqualified, ordinary citizens must band together, battling the elements and each other to slay this menacing creature.

    Comics Bulletin - Travis Moody Sep 30, 2014

    The man has good reason, because theres a lot of juicy conflict involving a not-so-Easter-egg on the horizon; a lot as in 50-pages that, you the reader, will only have to pay standard cover price for. With strong character personalities that match the strong facial expressions, a tasteful mystery that will only widen as the story goes, and spectacular dragon action not witnessed in comic pages before, the Monsignor can tell you geeks who fancy the sword-&-sheeth that your money here is well spent.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Sep 24, 2014

    This is a great start for A TOWN CALLED DRAGON. Aside from the fact that you're getting more than 50 pages of story for the price $3.99, the art is wonderful and the story is fantastic. Do you like dragons? Then you should read this. Even if you're not a fan, Winick does an awesome job at setting this all up. Overall, I really enjoyed this issue and so will you. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Oct 2, 2014

    A Town Called Dragon focuses on the inhabitants of the small town of Dragon, Colorado learning something that was all too apparent to the vikings in 1002AD. Dragons are pretty bad-ass and should be avoided (or killed) whenever possible! Well, our current day protagonists may not be able to side-step the dragon, but if they did we wouldn't have much of a story. Winick and Shaw put together a stunning 55 page package here, one I heartily recommend you to look for at your local shop. I'm in for this series and am looking forward to #2. Read Full Review

    The Lost Lighthouse - thelostlighthouse Sep 19, 2014

    This was a great start for this mini series, and dragon stories are usually good fun. It was great value too, with over 50 pages unbroken by adverts for $3.99. Check it out at your local comic book shop, or online digital comics platform. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ashley Victoria Robinson Sep 30, 2014

    A Town Called Dragon #1 is almost three times the number of pages for $3.99. It's well written, has a clearly laid out mythology, really great looking fight scenes and dragons! A fantastic issue for mythology fans or people looking for an urban fantasy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Sep 29, 2014

    In all, "A Town Called Dragon" certainly isn't a bad book -- but it's not a great one, either. Judd Winick and Geoff Shaw present an issue that reads like sixty pages of exposition, gearing up to a fantastic concept without really delivering it. Read Full Review
