Praise

"I thought that Phoebe Gloeckner’s story, ‘Minnie’s Third Love,’ was one of the best comic stories I ever read in my life … a masterpiece. She is one of the best, which is interesting, seeing as: A.) She’s a cute girl, B.) She’s not a very prolific artist … two factors which, one would assume, would be a hindrance to great art. But it’s always a mystery, what makes great art … there, I said it … she’s a great artist."
—R. Crumb, cartoonist

"Phoebe Gloeckner’s illustrations for The Atrocity Exhibition were superb—wonderful line and shading of which Durer would have approved—several were absolute tours de force."
—J.G. Ballard, author of Crash and The Atrocity Exhibition

"Many cartoonists today mine their personal lives for subject matter. Phoebe Gloeckner achieves what few of them can; she makes the autobiographical universal. Her finely crafted drawings and emotionally powerful story-telling ability combine in this terrific collection to tell us painful, sympathetic, and hilariously human truths. Read this book. Find out why comics are art."
—Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead
