"... a madcap stylish adventure comic..." - Bleeding Cool
"The book’s ideas and absurdity and sarcastic self-commentary and fully-realized, plausible wonderland of future marvels and ancient grandeur and generous 40-page premier make it one of the most enjoyable comics now available; your own only-human nose will still be unmistakably able to detect a breath of fresh air." - Comic Critique
"The Roman Nose #1 has been in development for over a year, and the end result is a great beginning for the series. Michelangelo seems to be a fun character, and his lack of super powers or gifts beyond a big nose make him more relatable. The addition of entertaining side characters, a futuristic setting, and killer mob robots (complete with fedoras!) just makes the comic that much better.
The Roman Nose #1 is a new comic worth picking up, especially if you love clean art and interesting stories."- We the Nerdy
