Critical reception[edit]

Wired called it "intriguing and humorous".[1] Film director Gus Van Sant called it an "Awesomely executed story by Courtney Taylor-Taylor. Great art – you must read it."[2] Ain't It Cool News wrote that it was "worth a look if you haven't read it already, especially if you're an indie comics fan. It's a good story that should appeal to those who like comics that have realistic characters along with a small bit of socio-political history mixed in."[3]
