Jerry Beck at Cartoon Research gushes, "It's rare that the comic book version of a popular comic strip is as good or better than the original. This is one of those rare exceptions. Sagendorf is immersed in Segar's world. His storytelling abilities are superb and his cartooning is a joy to behold. Sagendorf owned this universe as much as Segar – other artists have been able substitutes, but Sagendorf knew these eccentric personalities inside and out."
