    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh May 7, 2015

    If you want tongue-in-(butt)cheek comics that tickle your neck while going for the jugular, accept no substitutes… because, quite frankly, there are none. Read Full Review

    Geek Sushi - Stephen Poferl May 13, 2015

    I think what Rick Spears is building is one of the most memorable and original characters to come to the pages of comics in quite some time. Add to this the psychedelic and almost maddening art of Jim Callahan and you are left with a genuine piece of comic genius. The art reminds me of something you find in an old Zap Comic, Robert Williams comes to mind. Not to give away too much but" Hasidic practitioners of martial arts is all I'll say. This book is nothing short of spectacular and you should definitely add it to your pull. Go out and get the first trade, "President's Day", as well. You shan't be disappointed. Happy reading everyone! Read Full Review

    GWW - Casey Walsh May 12, 2015

    The Auteur: Sister Bambi #1 is another very adult but very entertaining journey into the life of a movie producer. Spears and Callahan have once again grabbed my attention and there is no way I'm turning away. Sister Bambi #1 is the kind of comic book you read when you have had one of those days. A perfect escape full of everything you love; outrageous humor, hardcore violence and a satirical commentary on the workings of Hollywood. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Mark William Pawziuk May 12, 2015

    As it reads on the credit page, The Auteur: Sister Bambi #1, is not for "the weak or immature." What Spears, Callahan and their collaborators have put together is a decidedly adult book. That said, it is also one of the most playful, bizarre and hilarious comics currently on the stands. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke May 13, 2015

    This is a fun and funny comic that's fast on its feet and always interesting. If you're not laughing by issue's end you're at the very least going to be wondering why comics aren't all this unique. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chris White May 13, 2015

    Some of the story can be a little convoluted at timesit tries to introduce too much in the issue without allowing other parts of the story to breathe first. We are introduced to many characters that struggle to find their place with only Nathan and Sister Bambi leaving a lasting impression on me; however, it would be unfair to scorn at such a trivial matter so early on in the run and I fully expect the series to go from strength to strength. The Auteur: Sister Bambi #1 is a fun, smart reflection on the movie industry that assaults your senses and challenges your perceptions of what a comic should be, without making you feel uncomfortable or stupid in the process.
