    This is another perfect issue, as fulfilling as it is possible to be. And as a sucker for the use of board game layouts in comics, the final page had me squealing in delight. Read Full Review

    Kirby's concepts have been getting a massive revival lately, and while this one is a lot less straightforward and more indie-accented than many of them, I think Kirby would be proud. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Nov 15, 2017

    On art, there’s nothing I could say that has not already been said about the Allred’s. Michael and Laura have their style and have perfected it without a doubt. Everything in this issue is beautiful. One small touch I truly enjoy is the use of non bubbled, for lack of a better word, of Kazuko’s dialogue. It is omnipresent throughout the series, but is always done as funny quips explaining the situation at hand, or simple observations. I don’t know why I feel this way, but I feel it adds just that extra touch to this already great book. Read Full Review

    Bug! The Adventures of Forager #5, promises a no holds barred ending next issue where anything is possible. It's been a fun ride so far. This issue simply reinforces the genius of Jack Kirby and the love that the Allred's have for the King and fun comics. Read Full Review

    You will love this book if you grew up with Mike or Lee Allred, or are Mike or Lee Allred. For everyone else, it's like watching someone else's home movies. Great looking book, though. Read Full Review
