"This is where it starts. It's the prequel. It's awesome."
— Simon Daoudi
, Did You Catch All That?
"The most anticipated prequel since Star Wars Episode 1. The main difference is this one won't disappoint."
, Super Robot Mayhem
"It's breathtaking... amazingly intense and a powerful statement about the human condition. A fantastic introduction to the world of Hip Flask and his cronies."
— Greg Burgas
, Comics Should Be Good
"Though the elements are over the top and fantastic, the central message -- of the wasteful and spiritually devastating nature of war -- is clear and quite down to earth."
— Don MacPherson
, Eye on Comics
"Picture Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People crossed with Sarah Connor from the Terminator flicks. A damn fine war-comic if I've ever read one."
— Erik Wise
, via GoodReads
"An old-fashioned war comic in which combat is a character itself."
, A.V. Club
"I enjoy the way that Starkings, Moritat, Ladronn and everyone else involved is slowly building up the world of the Elephantmen. War Toys shows the Elephantmen as the weapons that they were intended to be but also shows the beginnings of their own development into individuals."
— Scott Cederlund
, Wednesday's Haul
"Starkings creates a collage of images, characters and events that slowly reveal a grander picture, visible only from a distance. All of this is brought to life by Moritat, who here produces some of his finest work on the series to date. An invaluable edition to an increasingly fine canon of work."
