What people are saying about Amerikarate:

“It hearkens back to a time in our youth when we were more innocent. When reading a comic book felt like a getaway in which you could immerse yourself into this world and just revel in that happiness.” (PopCultHQ)

“Three issues in and Amerikarate shows no signs of slowing down. It grabs your attention,
smacks the hell out of it, and leaves it shouting ‘Thank you sir, may I have another?!’ ” (Rogues Portal)

“If you’re a fan of 80s cheese, gag a minute writing,
and high energy action then you owe it to yourself to pick this issue up.” (The Broken Infinite)

Amerikarate Volume 1: Suck My Kick will be released on July 19th, 2017.
