"Jungle incorporates quite a bit of solid information on comics creation in the telling of its story."
-Tony Isabella, Comics Buyers Guide

"Grade: A. The book takes readers through the beginnings of a semester right up to the fledgling artists' first opportunity at landing work. Along the way, it throws in a few how-tos that are of special interest to both would-be comics creators and casual readers."
-Comics Buyers Guide

"Belongs in a similar category as Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics. A lighthearted complement."
- School Library Journal
