    Big Comic Page - Chris Downs Jun 8, 2016

    A large part of what makes this series is Cannon's wonderful art, which balances both the pathos and cartoonish elements perfectly, able to nimbly go from silly to heartbreaking to unsettling in a matter of panels, not pages. Admittedly it is packed with lots of really esoteric references, lots of which undoubtedly went over my head, but that doesn't detract from the sheer enjoyment to be had in this wonderful series.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 8, 2016

    If you've never read this series, then you really should check it out. I know that's like the thing to say for every comic book ever, especially ones that people like, but there's nothing like this in comics. NOTHING! I mean a serious look at prison/parole life told through the perspective of Kaiju that still manages to stay true to and use all of the Kaiju genre's tropes and, AND, use prison tropes as well!?! Its fucking brilliant is what it is, so check it out. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 11, 2016

    The world of Kaijumax is still utterly fascinating, but that world only works when we care about the characters and the story. Cannon achieves that in the first volume, but I'm just not feeling it with the new focus this time around. Read Full Review
