There is a level of craftsmanship in this art that only a master cartoonist can bring to his work, a level that betrays his deep love for this material. The art in this book is Really ******* Great, and why the hell would I be stupid enough to expect anything else? ----Comics Bulletin
For what's essentially an evocative throwback to the kid's superhero comics of yore, there's a lot going on here--youth versus seasoned oldsters, absolute power corrupting absolutely, mother/child dysfunction--and it's all wrapped up in a package of terrific dialogue, stellar artwork, and enough raw fun to drown in. ----Publishers Weekly
That this is beautifully and evocatively drawn, full of fun action set pieces and two or three grandly emotional and cathartic moments, that shouldn't surprise anyone at this point. It's Jaime Hernandez. ----The Comics Reporter
