"[Cuphead] features illustrations by Studio MDHR's Miller that evoke the golden age of American animation, when Walt Disney and Looney Tunes were at their peaks. The book's tone blends the smirking asides of Tex Avery...with the heartfelt aw-shucks emotions of early Mickey Mouse cartoons. Fans of the Cuphead video game will delight, but even those completely unfamiliar will find plenty to enjoy here."--Kirkus
