    1. Rock Candy Mountain is a fun action adventure comic about two hobos called Jackson and Pomona Slim who are travelling America in search of the magical Rock Candy Mountain.Look, you either enjoy stories about train-hopping, adventure-having hobos, or you don't. If you do, this is a pretty good one. Kyle Starks has a fine sense of humour, and his storytelling skills are on point. Chris Schweizer's artwork is goofy and cartoonish, which fits the tone of the comic well. I could do without some of th [...]


    2. A rip roaring adventure of a hobo named Johnson searching for the Rock Candy Mountain whilst being chased by the Devil, the Feds, and the hobo mafia. The art can be a little much to get through in places. I find the noses that look like mustaches particularly off-putting.Received an advance copy from Edelweiss and Image in exchange for an honest review.


    3. I just met Kyle Starks the other day, such a nice dude, and very funny. Anyhow, is this story good? Well it's about Hobos. The main one, Jackson, is on a mission to Rock Candy Mountain! Exciting huh? But we also have THE DEVIL chasing him down. However, he made a deal with Jackson. For his soul Jackson will be unbeatable in a fight. He is the ultimate warrior. So while Jackson travels the vast world with his book that points towards the Mountain he must come against some tough fights, the bigges [...]


    4. On the road spiced with magic, fisticuffs, prison breaks, smelly eggs, FBI and lots more. Plus good old Saint Nick thrown in with the kitchen sink. Hobo shenanigans like you have never seen before. Woot!


    5. I'm not typically a fan of hobo stories (although I do like the movie Emperor of the North quite a bit), but this first volume of Rock Candy Mountain strikes just the right tone: adventure mixed with humor (but not too much) and the supernatural (but not too much). The tone is humorous without being frivilous, which is quite a feat. I look forward to the next volume.



    6. Interesting concept for a graphic novel—a hobo hero on a mysterious quest. I’m still trying to decide if I liked the way it was drawn. There was something nostalgic in the simplicity of the artwork, but the style also made it difficult to tell what was happening in the action sequences. Not all the dialogue was great, but I thought the two tramps (not hobos) were funny. I couldn’t stop giggling when one of them called the devil “Beezlebud.” I liked the hobo slang and signs that were in [...]


    7. So much fun! Great storyline, love the chapter titles, and the characters are all well, characters! Quick read as well but mature language.


    8. Even better than I was expecting and I was expecting a lot. It's great that we have Image Comics to make books like this available to larger audiences.


    9. BCDER: 88Definitely my first “hobo” comic and I loved it. The language was one of the most interesting additives. I guess a chicken is a “gump”, but why? It doesn’t matter. The adventure is real and I look forward to future volumes. A buddy hobo comic? I would have never thought it would be something I’d like


    10. This is something different. A comic set in the hobo culture of the early 20th century. The author tries to keep most of the hobo interaction authentic as there are notes included revealing some of his sources. However, this tale is also steeped in Fantasy as the main character has made a deal with the Devil and the Devil is chasing him, leaving a trail of death and destruction in his wake.I like the art, but it's a bit cartoony for this subject matter as the book has plenty of profanity and is [...]


    11. a man hops a train & befriends a hobo who leads him on a journey full of crazy shit while trying to make it to a magical place from a well known folk song. this was HILARIOUS i was cackling out loud by the second page. can't fucking wait for volume 2. 5/5.


    12. Starts off so well and becomes insufferable by the end. Like the concept, but the Hollywood Slim character is so forced in his cleverness that he completely disrupts the hardboiled edge. Such a shame considering how much I like the art.


    13. Um, is there a hobo revolution going on in comics or something? What’s happening?! Hot on the heels of Cecil Castellucci’ and Jose Pimienta’s “Soupy Leaves Home” comes another hobo-centric saga: Kyle Starks’ manic, vulgar hootenanny, “Rock Candy Mountain.” Jam-packed full of fisticuffs, cuss words, organized crime, and the literal Devil himself, this collection of the first four issues of the Image series definitely isn’t for kids or the faint of heart or the easily offended or [...]


    14. *Received an advance galley from Image*"Manic, hobo fighting epic" indeed. I didn't much know what to expect from this one, and it was still more over the top in basically every way. As a war-scarred hobo searches for the mythical Rock Candy Mountain - with a failed movie star in tow - he is pursued by the FBI, the hobo mafia, and the devil himself. Oh, and he's virtually unbeatable in a fight.Written for mature readers only, this manic adventure with absurd flair careens around a post-war count [...]



    15. Hilarious hobo hijinks. Only 4 stars because I had it dramatically read to me and I didn’t get to see much of the illustration. Great stuff. Hobo spiders.


    16. An great action adventure comic about a hobo on the run from a deal he made with the devil and hunting for the mythical candy mountain.



    17. I didn't think it was possible to make hobos actually entertaining, but this was great fun to read. Looking forward to more.


    18. Honestly, the serious tone didn’t match the cartoony style, but I worked really well. I like the hobo signs in between chapters, that was a nice touch.
