• Weirdworld is where the lost things go. Like the barbarian lord Arkon, who's now prisoner of the underwater apes.
•  Or like his cellmate, a mysterious one-eyed man who appears to be made out of rock and calls himself a Crystal Warrior...

    This title is unabashed fun. Jason Aaron is doing his best Conan riff with a forgotten Marvel analogue in Arkon, and Mike Del Mundo's art is simply inspiring. Read Full Review

    A gorgeous little diversion, "Weirdworld" offers all the fun of Marvel's more forgettable titles with the luscious artwork of its most serious. I'm so excited that Aaron and Del Mundo have used the "Secret Wars" premise to make this odd, wonderful book. Read Full Review

    It's violent, it's rude, it's disgusting - but mighty entertaining. Read Full Review

    Jason Aaron and Mike Del Mundo do plenty of justice to the barbarian hero Arkon with this book. Like the first, issue #2 is crammed full of outlandish sights and bloody action. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Robert Reed Jul 23, 2015

    Jason Aaron and Mike Del Mundo have crafted an visually stunning book inWeirdworld#2. While Arkon doesn't quite escape the tropes of his character archetype, he makes for an entertaining enough protagonist for readers to navigate this bizarre world with. Jason Aaron and Mike Del Mundo have come up with enough unusual imagery that it will keep readers on their toes, even as they stop to stare at Del Mundo's images. Read Full Review

    The art is probably the best part of this series. Even just the cover art is gorgeous and enough to make you want to read this. The whole issue is wonderfully gritty and dark, reminiscent of Thundercats, with carefully placed bright pops of color amongst muted darker backgrounds. Although it happened to be a short issue with little development, there was enough to keep me interested for the next release. All-in-all, I'd say there's even better content to come.

    Bottom line is: this book is well worth the read. It’s a simple story with simple writing and amazing artwork. And dudes, it has UNDERWATER APES. What’s not to like? Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Jul 29, 2015

    With the introduction of Warbow, it's clear the comic is also using as its source material the world of Crystar, which apparently was one of Marvel's attempts in the 80s to create comics and toys in hopes to elicit a licensing deal, but it failed to connect to audiences. Sure enough (thanks, Wikipedia!), the other named character, Moltar, is a key player in the Saga of Crystar. An intriguing spin on some obscure characters. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jul 23, 2015

    Like a lot of Secret Wars tie-ins Weirdworld's biggest success is in being fun while unobtrusive. The action is fast paced, the plot simple, and the characters likable and it's all easily enjoyed and forgotten pretty quickly. It's a fun comic snack that's buoyed by some stupendous artwork.
