    Disclaimer: Readers of this book is probably not for you. Its for your kids, or younger siblings, or anyone youd like to get started on comics that may not be ready for more "mature" titles (like All-Star Batman & Robin). Adventures of Bio Boy is kid-friendly without talking down; it is witty without giving the wink-wink to parents. Bio Boy contains just the right level of absurdity, more than most adults can handle but not quite enough for the rest, just the exact amount of foolishness to appeal to early teens who may be bored of action and funny animal cartoons but still eager to accept animation as a hip medium. But then, this is not animation (not yetsomebody get on this!), this is comics, and comics have to work a bit harder to reach their audience. If Speakeasy can place this comic in non-traditional outlets, like Hot Topic, this may be the next hit among the black t-shirt set. Read Full Review

    Overall, I found the artwork to be crisp, colorful, and pleasing. The writing and dialogue were on par with any Ive seen. Its comic but not silly. While I didnt have the actual printed issue, the production quality of the digital pdf was excellent. AND for your parents out there, I cant foresee anything that would keep your elementary aged children from reading and enjoying the adventures of this character! Read Full Review

    So, why only ? Well, the stories are a bit light; its perhaps a bit churlish to complain after going on about how free and exciting the comic is, and truly the last thing this book needs is to be weighed down with unnecessarily complex plotting and dense dialogue, but theres a happy compromise in there somewhere. Id like to see some more twists and turns and a bit more intrigue perhaps; the setting and characters should be more than able to provide interesting and fun complexities in later issues, such as backstabbing game show contestants or executives from rival television shows. If Cipriano can do that, then hell have a very strong title on his hands. Read Full Review
