    Clobberin' Time promises readers one thing: Steve Skroce drawing The Thing fight all sorts of strange stuff; Clobberin' Time #1 delivers upon that promise and exceeds it with a style that from the page layouts to the dialogue could only belong to Skroce. Read Full Review

    Clobberin' Time #1 is a big pile of clobberin', smashin' fun. Skroce's snappy banter is highly entertaining, the action is cartoonishly violent (in the best way), and the connective mystery linking this issue to the next is intriguing. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 30, 2023

    Skroce wouldnt be picking up a series like this if he wasnt a big fan of the Thing. Theres real love thats put into Ben Grimms appearance on the page. Its a rich and cuddly kind of craggy rockiness that Skroce is bringing to the page. Next month, Ben teams up with a rugged little bruiser as he fights alongside Wolverine. Hes not a bad choice for the second issue of a five-part series. Skroce is off to a good start. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Mar 29, 2023

    Writer/artist Steve Skroces script is appealing zany and weird, but the real star of Clobberin Time #1 are his wacky visuals. Just a few examples for the imagination on display includes an Iron Man/Doctor Doom/Ultron hybrid man wielding (what appears to be) a Mjolnir briefcase, a kaiju I can only describe as a goth Klawf, and an allen race of what are basically mystical shaved Ewoks, theres a lot to look at here. Bryan Valenzas colors enhance the vibe further, with each page popping with all sorts of flavor between Skroces heavy lines. Clobberin Time has a big indie comic sensibility in tone that makes it an incredibly entertaining read, but even if youre only here for the clobberin promised by the title, youll likely walk away from it satisfied.
