Review Quotes

"For a new generation never exposed to the original, it's a vivid insight into one of the most fascinatingly creative and unwaveringly troubled writers of his generation." -Publisher's Weekly

"This 170-page graphic novel is nothing short of breathtaking. Little's cartoony characters and herky-jerky frames and lettering add to the drug-fueled stories contained within. The colors pop on every page, whether you find yourself in a dark, seedy hotel room or the bright outdoors." -verbicide
