"The title alone, ‘Doris Danger Seeks Where Giant Monsters Creep and Stomp’ should have warned me off, but I read it anyway. Somehow, Chris Wisnia had performed the amazing feat of taking the minor masterpieces that Jack Kirby and I had done and looking at them through a carnival's distorting mirror. I wanted to write the sort of thoughtful, philosophical blurb about "DDSWGMC&S" for which I'm so justly famed, but after getting caught up in its weird and wacky contents, no mere words of mine could truly do it the injustice it deserves. Therefore, I'll just add the one sentence that applies to any horror or monster tale—'Read it at your own risk!' "
- Stan Lee

"The penultimate Kirby-style giant monster comic."
- Mike Mignola

"This book has giant monsters that outshine even the ones from WUTHERING HEIGHTS! Enjoy!"
- Adam Hughes

"A fantastic hoot! Great pin-ups, too..."
- Dave Gibbons

"Who doesn't love big monsters?! Well, I do, and if you do too you need to crack open this book and take in all the monster love."
- Mike Allred

"Giant Monsters in Diapers..."
- Michael Kaluta

"...Dude, you know I love the magazine and think it rocks..."
- Tim Bradstreet

"A big, bristling, bombastic, black&white, blockbusting buttload o' fun!"
- Matt Wagner

"I rank you with the very best of pencillers, Chris."
- Dick Ayers

"...Throw reason out the window...laugh-out-loud homages...Told with tongue wedged so far in cheek that I’m surprised Wisnia can breathe...Enormously entertaining goofiness (and that’s a big compliment)."
- Newsarama.com

"For some reason that I can't quite explain, I laughed out loud...big damn fun..."
- Johnny Bacardi, "The Johnny Bacardi Show"

"Demented footnotes, conspiracies, double-crosses, triple-agents, a woman in peril, crazed and paranoid Army Generals and giant robots all combine to ensure that no possible speck of discernable sense makes its way out of these pages...Plotlines switch tracks in the blink of an eye, sometimes within the confines of a single speech balloon...very funny."
- Comixfan.com

"If you're after nuanced storytelling and naturalistic dialogue this isn't the book for you. If, on the other hand, you're looking for enormous monsters creeping and stomping, plotting that seems to spring directly from the mind of a lunatic with A.D.D. and dialogue such as 'Redneck fools! You've doomed us all!' you're in the right place."
- a completely different review at Comixfan.com

"...Hilarious...a very good laugh...rollicking elliptical balls of confusion highlighted by monster-fearing military men, monster-loving guerrillas, monster-hating spy organizations, monster-manipulating secret societies, and, of course, Giant Monsters, as well as robots, aliens, assassins, double-agents, triple-agents and hapless boyfriends..."
- Steven Grant, Permanent Damage
