“The Year of Loving Dangerously is an excellent work. If I may have wanted to know more about what happened to Rall at the end, that merely shows he and Callejo did an excellent job of telling a story. As more folks read it or when this book is filmed (yes, I said that twice), […]

“Byun is a stunning draftsman and character designer, but one got a sense of restlessness from this collection of stories.

Another great review on this collection our imprint Forever Nuts did: “The “Forever Nuts” book does this rarely seen comic strip proud. It’s a good read, not just for students of early comic art, but for lovers of an enjoyably rough-hewn, low-brow American brand of humor.” Pop Culture Gadabout

If you wanted to buy anything in Turkmenistan you had to go to the bazaar on Sunday. It was always jam jam jammed packed and you’d have to push your way through the crowd. Which is kind of like SPX, only instead of carpets, car parts and livestock people are looking through piles of comics. […]
