"Nate Beaty is a classic whiner in the hallowed autobiographical-comics tradition of R. Crumb and Joe Matt. ...he blows your mind with beautiful, thick-lined, tragedy-strewn, full-page drawings of Seattle or radiant renderings of Oregon swimming holes." -- Village Voice
"If you're a fan of the autobiographical genre, you'd enjoy this offering ... you'll never find such an unendingly varying style anywhere else." -- Atlantic Comics Online
