"IDW's Blaze Brothers Is Soaked With Blood, Adrenaline And Fun... The Writing Is Loaded With Gems!" (Bleeding Cool)
"What if Tarantino made a comic book? That's what it feels like when you hit the first page of this collection.

(Fan Boy Comics)
"All fans of great storytelling will appreciate Blaze Brothers... Multicultural and with a global setting." (Vibe Magazine)
"The artwork continues to be nothing short of awesome, better than a lot of artwork you would see from Marvel to be completely honest.... Good story telling pays off, and trust me when I say this is good story telling." (ComicBooked)
