Topic: Packed with twisting plots of rivalry, revenge, and wrestling!
Review: “Strength Monsters was a fun read for me. The story is packed with twisting plots of rivalry, revenge, and wrestling. The wrestling scenes were by far the best part of the book. The sequences flowed together like a strip book, making it easy to follow what the characters were doing despite the often complicated and elaborate maneuvers the characters were pulling off. It reminded me a little bit of the way Black Belt Magazine formats their step-by-step how-to articles, each image showing one more step of the move. I thought that was really cool.”

Topic: Strength Monsters is the type of wrestling comic America needs.
Review: “Strength Monsters is the type of wrestling comic America needs. Willing to go to the outer limits of the absurd with a Burrito wrestler villain (a real living burrito not a man dressed in a burrito costume) and a hero that has built in Tesla Coils with permanent arcing action going at all times. The level of creativeness reminds me of the great Japanese puroresu manga Kinnikuman, there is even a character that reminds me a bit of SteCase King. What's going to set this comic apart from any wrestling comic you may have read, beyond the insane concept of a pro-wrestler with arcing Tesla Coils that fights a giant burrito eating burrito (yes a burrito that eats burritos, that's not a typo), is the attention and research into the amazing catch wrestling moves and techniques. An entertaining blend of real and fake, of the outlandish and historical."

Topic: Great art, funny Catch Wrestling in-jokes and tons of bizarre characters embroiled in food fights and wild in-ring action.
Review: “Just got my hands on a hard copy of Sam Kressin's "Strength Monsters" and it is awesome! For years Sam would tell me and Billy Robinson about this crazy idea he had for a surrealist Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling comic book. Well now I understand. Great art, funny Catch Wrestling in-jokes and tons of bizarre characters embroiled in food fights and wild in-ring action. Who could ask for more?!? Get a copy!"

Topic: Hilarious and Well Illustrated!
Review: “Strength Monsters is physical proof that (Indie) comics are alive and well. It’s hilarious and well illustrated. Original artists are the ones to persevere! I would ask any of comic reading friends and comic/graphic novel reading aficionados to support but most importantly enjoy this book! “
