Quotes[edit]

"I love Tony "Baloney" Juliano's paintings, and was thrilled that he was lending his unique vision to creating an actual comic book! Despite starting a Comic Art museum, I may not know too much about Art, but I know what I like. Now you can experience Tony's comic book for yourself. And that's no 'Baloney'!" - Lawrence Klein Chairman of the MoCCA Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art

“Juliano's work is accessible, widely-appealing, and often damn funny, but also contains undercurrents of more serious thought. But not too serious - after all, this guy named his pet Commander Hamster.” - Nick Scalia PLAY Magazine

"Tony takes art to a whole new world, and I love that crazy world of his!" - Bill Plympton animator

“Tony is a good man. Producing is not an easy thing to do and I applaud his efforts. The economy is in the tank and Tony has managed to get businesses to give it up for the arts. Makes me happy to be a part of Forgot To Laugh!” - The Great Throwdini an Impalement arts
