"I loved the battles and the writing…had me laughing as I finished it through to the very end…A very good mix of action and humor I would suggest to all." - Comic Avalance

"A cute story." - Bill Messner-Loebs, former writer of The Flash and Wonder Woman.

"The art was great for the wacky sort of thing that they're trying to do here." - Optical Sloth.com

"This is not a comic that is likely to appeal to adults jaded on all manner of dark fantasy riddles with sub-plots, intrigue, and betrayal.  If the first issue of The Three Keys does what I think it's doing (setting the tone for following issues), this shares a closer kinship with fantasy stories from old Dungeons and Dragons campaigns, from a group of heroes going back and forth over who truly saved the day to the very cut and dry 'these are the good guys and these are the bad guys' style of writing...For that audience, this could shape up to be an incredible series...Visually, the comic is also very solid and carries itself well." - Indy Comic Review.com

"For people that love porn and violent action intermixed with some good story telling...this is for you." - Small Press Newsroom

"If you can laugh along with some of the sillier scenes, there’s plenty to like here, and yes, I do mean more than a lot of naked people. Some of the fight scenes are done really well, and I thought her origin story was handled nicely. If you must take everything here seriously though, you’ll probably have a hard time with it. Unless, of course, all you’re looking for is some serious nakedness, in which case you’ll probably come away happy." - Optical Sloth.com
