"A wacky genre mash-up that starts with a bang, throwing readers into a massive ancient conflict while steadily injecting strange new elements into the plot.... The sense of scale Ponticelli brings to the battle is very impressive, and he packs the spread with detail that Brusco matches in her vibrant, textured coloring." -- AV CLUB

"Prepare to discover BRONZE AGE BOOGIE. The series combines the best-selling comic genres of the 1970s -- beyond superheroes -- into one wild adventure as monsters, kung fu, fantasy, cosmic adventure and of course apes collide when a barbarian princess faces a martian invasion in 1975 AD. But don't expect the creative team of Stuart Moore, Alberto Ponticelli and Giulia Brusco to go for the easy way-back jokes with this series."--HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"It's like skateboarding uncontrollably through 1970s comics with kaleidoscopes strapped to your eyes -- but in a good way I mean, I guess they could have called it SAVAGE SWORD OF THE PLANET OF THE DEADLY HANDS OF THE WORLDS ON THE LOOSE...but BRONZE AGE BOOGIE is, at the very least, shorter. Don't miss it " -- Kurt Busiek (Astro City, Marvels)

Give this book a read if you want something completely different to everything else on your stack."-- POP CULT HQ

"Kung fu, swords and talking apes. You don't need more than that, do you?" -- 13TH DIMENSION
