"In each self-contained story the boy Copper and his talking dog Fred journey through a detailed but economically-drawn landscape - sometimes beautiful, sometimes bleak, sometimes surreal. Fred usually has some pithy comment to make on their circumstances, while Copper is generally more sanguine."

"Each page tells a self-contained story, but there are a few recurring characters."

"...each episode is a gem. Kibuishi devotes a month to each of them, and his patience and care can be felt in every panel and every line of dialog.

The stories maintain a friendly tone, suitable for young children, but satisfying for adult readers. Copper is clearly a child, but in some ways he's wise beyond his years. Fred's attitude is impatient and crabby, and the stories often show Copper gently mentoring him to be more mature.

Several dramatic episodes shift the focus from Fred to Copper, who himself must face issues he's not prepared to deal with. Most often these are issues of romance... Often the series places romance in a humorous context...

Kibuishi's work often has darker shadings and more ambiguous themes... Kibuishi's ambiguity carries over into some of his most whimsical tales..."

-- The Webcomics Examiner

"The art for Copper is so beautiful that after I've read the comic, I stop, go back to panel one then go through it again just to admire the art... In short, some of the best art I've ever seen, and this is NOT hyperbole.

...The writing's main purpose seems to be to catch those fleeting notions, fancies and dreams we once had and forgot we had...

Reading Copper is like coming in from a grimy, rainy day in some urbanised, crowded city and walking into your living room to be transported into a beautiful and peaceful garden... Such beauty in perfection that it makes you want to cry and be happy crying. ...a rare gem for webcomics."
