The Escapist "Seriously funny" -- Earnest Cavalli, The Escapist
AV club "It shouldn't come as any surprise that the contributors to The Devastator include alumni of Funny Or Die, Popzilla, Metalocalypse, The Venture Bros., McSweeney's, Cracked, Mad, and (full disclosure) The Onion. It's every inch as irreverently awesome as that pedigree suggests." -- Jason Heller, The A.V. Club

"Lively and amusing from start to finish" -- Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

"A humor magazine that values good design as highly as good gags..." -- Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

suvudu02 "[The Devastator has] a hip but undeniably warped sensibility that falls somewhere between the broad satire of National Lampoon or Mad magazine and the bitter humor of indie comic great Peter Bagge."

"[The Devastator] knows their nerd stuff as well as they do humor, and have no problems mixing the two up for laughs." -- Matt Staggs, Suduvu (Del Rey)
