Like Archie comics ... The jokes are always executed right on point, and Jayson (and his gal pal, Arena) are just so darn endearing that you quickly get caught up in their misadventures and enjoy the ride.
--Brian Cronin, Comic Book Resources (CBR)
Krell's character-driven tales are fun and witty. He's got a great ear for dialogue; you can hear Jayson and the other players speak their lines as you read them... Krell's art is akin to that in Archie and other classic humor comics. His style is crisp and energetic, easy on the eyes and always in service of his stories... 'Jayson Goes to Hollywood' earns the full five Tonys. --Tony Isabella, Comics Buyer's Guide
96 pages of new original work and a plot line worthy of a sitcom on Logo... Krell's simple black-and-white artwork neatly blends the timeless characters with timely background, very much like the look that Dan DeCarlo developed for the 'Archie' comics... As with the previous [Jayson] collections, this volume contains a number of short comic episodes, although this time the stories add up to one long story; on might go so far as to call it a 'mini-epic.' However, despite the episodic divisions, Krell ends almost every page with either a good joke or a turn of events that makes you want to read just one more page, until suddenly you've read the whole thing. The story resolves, but the ending suggest a subsequent volume to come. --Jay Laird, Edge magazine
