    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Jul 23, 2020

    VILLAINOUS does for superheroes what WICKED did for fairy tales. Stonie Williams and Jef Sadzinski have developed something unique in the landscape of comic book capes and cowls, producing something that should make it onto your regular Wednesday pull list. The story is intriguing but straightforward, and the dialogue sometimes a bit over the top, but overall eminently enjoyable. The art is professional grade, borrowing techniques from manga and applying them to a western style, with clean linework and quality coloring. Read Full Review

    With an amazing first issue, Villainous is for sure the comic to be on the lookout for and add to your pull list. Taking place in the greatest city in the world (New York City), Williams seems set on continuing to build upon this world laced with mystery and deceit. Coupled with Sadzinski's and LaFuente's arts and color, scenes will be a blast to marvel at. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Jacob Cordas Oct 14, 2020

    Villainous #1 is a satire without sharp enough teeth. It definitely has the pieces of a more interesting story, but this book still needs more time to develop and reach its full potential. Read Full Review
