It Cool News reviews Daisy Kutter - "It’s
just great when I come across a book that is a perfect representation
of sequential art. When I read a graphic novel/comic book
that is the pinnacle of characterization, storytelling and

across a book that exemplifies the best in its class and make
no mistake about it DAISY KUTTER: THE LAST TRAIN is one of

review at Silver Bullet Comic Books - "Daisy
Kutter: The Last Train reaffirmed my faith in comic book story-telling,
and I cant wait to read it again." - Keith Dallas
review at Diamond's Scoop - "We
had managed to overlook Daisy Kutter when it first came out
in mini-series form, but no such mistake this time."
review at The Fourth Rail - "Mix
equal parts George Lucas, Miyazaki and Sergio Leone and you've
got some idea what to expect from Daisy Kutter, the western/sci-fi
adventure by Kazu Kibuishi." - Randy Lander
review at Sequential Tart - "Daisy
Kutter rocks." - Rebecca Salek
review at Hero Realm - "This
issue wraps up one of the most unique and entertaining comics
Ive ever read." - Sarah Haslett
review at moviepoopshoot.com - "One
of my favorite unheralded gems of the past few months comes
to a close with these two issues, and defying what seems to
be all-too-normal these days, it delivers an excellent and
earned payoff in the end..." - Marc Mason
review at thecomicfanatic - "Writer/artist
Kazu Kibuishi has created one of the brightest, most lovable
characters to hit the scene in years. Kibuishis Daisy
Kutter is a tough cutie along the lines of a female Clint
Eastwood with the luck of Barney Fife! Kibuishis art
captures this essence perfectly, all the while giving this
book a welcoming and comforting feel that can only be described
as a breath of fresh air in an often stale industry!"
review at comiXtreme... -"...
if I had to give one word to describe this book it would be
"fun", because really that's what this book is.
Yeah, it's beautifully drawn and the writing is top notch,
but it also manages to have the fun factor and that's really
what sets it apart." - Matt DeWolskin - comiXtreme
at comiXtreme - "One
thing that struck me about this series was the quality of
the story. I have something of a law in comics
when it comes to stories written and drawn by the same creator.
I try to be as forgiving as possible in regards to the story
I find that usually that aspect of the one-man-show
comic is usually the weakest. It makes sense to me
the art of drawing is a very different skill than the art
of storytelling. And while an illustrator can be very imaginative
and come up with a great story concept, sometimes the execution
can be lacking, and I try to be forgiving in cases like that.
Here, though, I found that wasnt necessary. Kibuishi
has skillfully woven his tale, with all of the imagination
I expected from an artist, along with all of the writing sophistication
that I didnt. It was a welcome surprise, and it is the
story that, in the end, makes this title a complete package."
- Craig Reade - comiXtrem
review at CBR - "This
is pure storytelling, the ability to pace the images to go
with the words." - Augie De Blieck Jr.
review at Popthought - "Kibuishi's
sharp writing and stylish art makes Daisy Kutter a book that
immediately grabs the reader with its excellent pacing and
highly entertaining story." - Jeremy Clifft
review at NeedCoffee - "In
a strange mishmash place that's Old West but with robots--imagine
a Brad Bird-directed and animated version of Westworld...Solid
composition and "camera angles" make this worth
reading through once for the story and once to appreciate
everything else that's going on."
review at PaperBack Reader - "...along
comes Kazu Kibuishi with a book that has enough style and
substance to make this reviewer excited about comics all over
again. Daisy Kutter: The Last Train #1 is one of those books
that comes out of nowhere and surpasses all expectations."
