“The exacting artistic flare that develops in Johnston’s cartooning is gentle, thoughtful, and perpetually insightful to 20th-century life.” –LIbrary Journal (starred review)
“Johnston’s art is impeccable. Her simple and graceful line work conveys a great deal of emotion. It’s not overly stylized or intricate, making it easy to plug yourself into the roles of the protagonists. Again with the timeless and universal nature of the strip.” –Cinema Sentries
