    ART OPS has skyrocketed to the top of my reading list. It's easily become one of my favorite series to read. I'm having to restrain myself from gushing on and on about how much I love the story and art. Shaun Simon, Mike Allred, Matt Brundage, and Laura Allred are creating something truly wonderful with this book. Set in a world where art can come alive, I find myself almost wishing I could go into this world just to take in all the splendor. There's a strange mix going in the story. I have no idea what's going to happen and I absolutely love that. Each issue has been like a treat or reward. You really need to do yourself a favor and get on board with this series. It's not like anything else out there. I just can't get enough. Read Full Review

    Art Ops #2 really solidified the concept of this series for me, which I am choosing to describe as “all the right kinds of crazy”. The script is getting stronger as the series progresses and the Allreds are a powerhouse pair and are seemingly unstoppable. They are forces of nature that are currently blowing minds with Art Ops and I recommend you get in on the ground floor of this one before the issues get tough to get your hands on. Read Full Review

    Another solid issue here that is making it difficult to avoid this series. This issue proves this might be the coolest superhero team in comics. Read Full Review

    Those looking for an interesting, mature new title to sample need look no further than Art Ops. This well-spun yarn is an entertaining mashup of the spy and science fiction genres, as well as art and punk rock culture. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Scott Southard Nov 30, 2015

    Art Ops is not the ascendent work of fiction it could have been. It is not a praiseworthy comic nor is it a sublime work of fine art. What it is, however, is a conceptually brilliant love letter to all things creative. While the execution might be lacking, the attempt at a mashup is admirable, and I hope that this work's shortcomings don't stop visionaries from taking similar risks in the future. Read Full Review

    The story and concept are great, it has its own voice, but it insists on doing John Wayne impressions and just sounds like more like Yosemite Sam. Read Full Review
