    Comics Bulletin - Steve Morris Jul 4, 2012

    It's a fun strip, and a nice introduction to the character and world. It's slight and throwaway, but that's half the intent. It's a breakfast comic. You read it with a coffee and piece of toast, then you go buy a croissant to eat tomorrow. It's fun! It's what more comics should be trying for! And it feels utterly effortless. Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover, you guys. They're just great. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Jul 7, 2012

    This might have been my favourite comic that I read this week. Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover have a really fun concept on their hands of a girl who is kind of a hero and also likes to steal stuff sometimes. The whole experience is a bundle of fun, and I am eager to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Aug 10, 2012

    The most important thing that this comic has which is becoming, unfortunately, all too rare in comic books, is that it is a lot of fun to read. It's a quick comic, and thankfully the price reflects it's length rather than it's content (which would have made it much more expensive). This is the perfect issue to read on your lunch break, and is a great read for casual comic book readers or first timers who want to find something light and fun to read rather than some of the heavy and depressing stuff going on in the DC universe right now. I have a feeling the plot threads dropped may lead to a story arc, which does worry me since I would be content just reading one-shot stories, but there's no reason to doubt the combined abilities of writer Paul Tobin and artist Colleen Coover from MonkeyBrain " Bandette has stolen my heart and I don't want it back anytime soon.

    Comic Spectrum - Stephen Bretall May 5, 2013

    The one thing I thought this comic suffered from was that its focus on action made it so that over the course of a single issue not a whole lot happened in terms of plot. Combined with the fact that each issue is a dollar (which admittedly is way less than a print comic, but it's not the free of most webcomics either) and I felt like it could have done with a little better pacing. However, this isn't a huge issue, as the events the comic does portray are quite interesting and well put together. I would say it's worth the money, but those who refuse to spend money on comics aren't completely missing out (unless they enjoy lighthearted adventure romps in which case they definitely are).

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jul 3, 2012

    Monkeybrain Comics has a lot going for it right from the outset. We expect quality work from quality creators. Tobin and Coover absolutely deliver here. Bandette is a reminder that all kinds of comics have the potential to be good even if they are far from what's generally out there. It's just a matter of strength of execution. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Jul 5, 2012

    "Bandette" is the sort of light and fluffy that can easily reach a diverse audience. If Monkeybrain Comics plans to branch out and find casual new readers, this is the sort of off the wall quirk that will easily prove perfect for a cheap read on a sunny afternoon. By the end of this issue, you'll be actively waiting for more. "Bandette" should become the new caf "Modesty Blaise." Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 8, 2012

    I wasn’t crazy about the story and I’ve actually read other things from this creator before. I hope that this book doesn’t turn out to be Catwoman in a cape with far less beatings and actually does something interesting other than homage The Spirit which is basically where the rest of the story is going (I was going to let you figure that one out for yourself, but screw it). The second issue has a lot of work to do with the story otherwise this comic may end up being a picture book. Read Full Review
