    Word Of The Nerd - Megan Rae Jul 6, 2017

    Lion Forge is on the forefront of innovation in comics, and that is only more obvious with the release of Cloudia and Rex #1. This is a fantastic book that values cultural representation, innovation, and varied life experiences. This is a comic that pushes the industry forward, and it is an impressive first issue in every way. This series also hits on a demographic that is often underrepresented in the comics market. Young teens are often forced to choose between children's books and adult books, but Cloudia and Rex strikes a balance between these two age groups and serves up a realistic, thoughtful option for young readers.

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart Jul 10, 2017

    Cloudia & Rex #1 is an engaging start to a promising three-issue miniseries. It's refreshing to see a series directly aimed at young adult readers - the cover states it's intended for ages 14 and up, and the dialogue, while not simple, is written in a way to make it easy for young readers to follow themes and potentially new vocabulary from context clues in both the art and surrounding language. This issue would be perfectly at home amidst any young adult novels on the shelves today, and is a thoroughly-researched and beautifully illustrated miniseries well worth adult comics fans' time as well.

    Gods have been having a mini resurgence in pop culture this year, but Cloudia & Rex is the first of the recent crop (American Gods, Wonder Woman) where I haven't felt like an outlier to the enthusiasm. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Carrie McClain Jun 27, 2017

    A mini-series about a Black family which includes a Black girl who possibly has the power of hundreds of different Gods at her disposal, that also happens to have a creative team that includes an Afro-Cuban (Farias) catches my eye for sure, I think we're off to a good start. Read Full Review
