If there s a cartoonist working today who more reliably,
ruthlessly, and relentlessly exploits his own strengths with each
new release than Josh Simmons, I've yet to encounter him. --Sean T.

Josh Simmons' book The Furry Trap is truly disturbing in its depravity. Makes Ultra Gash Inferno look cute. An inspiring & exhilarating read! --Sammy Harkham"
[The Furry Trap] is a nightmarish monster...[W]hat Simmons does so well. . . is smash together sweetness and nightmare. Innocence and the most vile corruption imaginable. The stories are unsettling, but Simmons takes it three steps further than many other creators in this vein.... Yeah, this stuff is really good, in surprisingly different ways from story to story. It's a reprint collection that feels like a wonderfully terrible, vibrantly new manifesto on what comics are capable of. --Tim Callahan"
As with some of the best horror, The Furry Trap curb-stomps all expectations.... There s some sick s*** happening in this hardcover and if you re brave enough, you ll crack The Furry Trap open and enjoy the stories free of restraint and convention, yet teeming with unbridled creativity and absolute insanity. --Mark L. Miller"
