“Papercutz is doing its own thing here, giving us something a wee more cerebral than a live action toy catalog. . . something that reads almost like a superteam comic from the 1970s, taking a silly premise and making it adventuresome without overdoing it. . . . The science-fantasy is hyperactive fun.” — THE LOTTERY PARTY
