Aint It Cool News says: "Lighthearted & humor with enough bite to keep things interesting"
Newsarama says: "It’s a fun, funny book and right now superhero comics outside of the big two are getting so good (see things like The Life and Times of Savior 28 and Irredeemable) that they’re no longer guaranteed to be afterthoughts....it’s got more polish than a lot of small press books, making it feel like it could compete in a comic shop market.
Just Jen says: "Lava-roid is hilarious. it's mock hero-epic poetry. Like freaking Chaucer..." and Geek Syndicate says: "..it left me hungry for more..."
Plus a web series is in the works as well....yes that's me in spandex. ;)
