Review:

Just the sort of thing you want lying around your house or apartment to distract you, several pages at a time, from the potentially hungover but definitely mind-numbing bullshit of another quotidian day.” — Wayne Allan Brenner, The Austin Chronicle

I was surprised at how well Stevens captures the hyper-intellectual, alcohol-hazed existential nightmare of grad school.” — Andrea Battleground, The Onion's A. V. Club

[The] style of Stevens’s artwork is exquisitely rendered, with micro-fine pen lines that capture the slightest gradations of light and shade.” — Douglas Wolk, The Washington Post
