“Ed Subitzky's cartoons are brilliantly funny, amazingly clever, and frankly adorable. So, for that matter, is Ed himself. Thank God all his amazing work has finally been collected in one place.” —Mike Reiss, writer and producer for The Simpsons

“Subitzky has long been one of my favorite cartoonists; his Dada-tinged minimalist comics set my brain on fire when I first encountered them as a teenager. I'm not alone in having waited impatiently for decades for someone [to] publish a collection of his work... To me and many others, he remains one of the most singular figures in comics history, and the new book should open his brainy, bizarre take on the world to new audiences. It truly deserves the attention.” —John Kelly, The Comics Journal

“I first saw Ed Subitzky's work in the Funny Pages section of National Lampoon. I immediately loved his stuff. I thought his comics were hilarious. Strange, surreal, interesting, never show-offy, never mean or stupid. Ed Subitsky is one of my cartoon heroes.” —Roz Chast

“By the time I graduated from high school I knew about bitter and sweet, but thanks to cartoonists like Ed Subitzky, I also knew about weird and rare and hilarious ways of changing one into the other. [Subitzky] taught me to watch the people around me and listen to how they talk and to write down what they say.” —Lynda Barry, from Blabber, Blabber, Blabber: Volume 1 of Everything
