    It's understandable if readers are feeling burnt out on the Inhumans at this point. However, Lockjaw #1 offers an entertaining diversion from the norm that places more emphasis on Lockjaw's new partner than the trusty canine himself. This issue delivers all the wacky superhero fun one would expect, but it anchors that fun with a surprisingly deep look at a fallen hero in crisis. Read Full Review

    Lockjaw is a breathe of fresh air, with so many major comics being so serious, it's nice to see something a little light hearted and funny in places. If you want to try something a little less intense and more "Saturday Morning Cartoon", give it a try. Read Full Review

    411Mania - John Pumpernickel Mar 15, 2018

    This is a pretty funny book. Writer Daniel Kibblesmith and artist Carlos Villa give it light tone that delivers where it counts. A refreshing read in a glut of overly serious and glum comics. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 28, 2018

    At the start of the issue, I was hoping for a good "Lockjaw saves his family" adventure. At the end, I'm hoping for a good "Lockjaw saves D-Man" story, and I'm fairly confident that we'll get that. And probably some awesome Lockjaw family action, too. While a faster pace would be welcome, Carlos Villa's gorgeous art and Daniel Kibblesmith's funny script ensure that these first slow steps are highly enjoyable. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Brandon Davis Feb 28, 2018

    Daniel Kibblesmith pairs the oversized teleporting pup with once-hero D-Man for an adventure which will certainly teach them to rely on each other, possibly one more than the other, in an unnecessary but potentially quite fun adventure. Read Full Review

    While D-Man might outshine his canine compatriot, consider me sold on Lockjaw #1. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 2, 2018

    The dog is definitely the hero in this story and the remnants of D-man is the sidekick. Don't forget the hamsters piloting quad-copters! Light and fun. No harm no foul. Read Full Review

    Despite its quirks and muddled elements, LOCKJAW #1 has a layer of humanity that will primarily appeal to fans of the loyal companion to the Inhumans. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Feb 28, 2018

    Lockjaw #1 toys with a couple neat ideas but leads me to wonder if I need to come back for the next issue of the series. Read Full Review
