"Genuine comic book genius." — Panel Patter
"Three Fingers is what you'd get if Oliver Stone had done Who Framed Roger Rabbit... It's a completely involving piece of work. You go along with it, this great big mad yarn, until finally you're squirming uncomfortably in your seat." — Artbomb
"A delicious re-imagining of cartoon history. The bright and shiny past of film animation is muddied up and tarnished in this dark take on the early years of the industry. A concept this precise could only have been written by a true fan... The book is not easily forgotten." — Comic Book Bin
" . . . a single-minded obsession with animation history informs this work even as its creator twists and tears that history into a new, hideous, and hilarious form. There’s a little bit of Roger Rabbit and a whole lot of Spinal Tap at work here. Twisted and dark, funny and frightening, this is a deliciously evil toon history that demands attention." -- Alan David Doane
