Product Details


Mechaboys feels like the return of an old friend… like the Linklater movie Dazed & Confused mixed with a garage-built robot battle suit. Pure Kochalka magic!” — Atomic Books

“Kochalka includes the standard high-school plot points—party in the woods, gym class rope-climb, an obnoxious bully, secret crushes, crass teenage repartee—but he deftly keeps it cliché-free.” — Booklist

“A paean to awkward, high-drama teenage years, Mechaboys gains relevance from its deliberate echoing of school violence, while distancing its plot from the real-world horror of school shootings with its superhero comic book/cartoon elements.” — School Library Journal‘s Good Comics for Kids

“Almost every panel or page could be framed and hung on a wall, or printed on a T-shirt.” — Slings & Arrows

“The former cartoonist laureate of Vermont has made a triumphant return with his finest work since Monkey vs. Robot and the original run of SuperF*ckers.” — Page 45
