“Butler has managed to create a new superhero that feels unique while also playing to his strengths, he’s freaking hilarious when’s he not trying to be a comedian and he needs to get hammered to access his powers.” – Troy Mayes, ImpulseGamer.com
“The jokes are sudden and short, like strong jabs, and definitely have the outrageous and somewhat offensive flavor you would expect from a writer on Family Guy. The pacing is solid…” – Craig Reade – CXPulp.com
