Reviews

Astoundingly well-crafted and punishingly heartfelt.
Readers struggling with their own demons will find Hanselmann's work chillingly real.
These are simultaneously some of the meanest and most tender comics you will ever read.
Hanselmann is one of the most gifted cartoonists alive.
Hanselmann is a phenomenally talented, internationally renowned cartoonist who switches between laugh-out-loud absurdist humor and startlingly raw scenes of extreme sadness from one panel to the next, and this is his finest, funniest, and most mature work to date.
Hanselmann's particular brand of surrealist, sharp-witted humor [is] augmented with a darkness that draws from his own deeply personal experiences, but which has clearly touched a helluva lot of people.
Bad Gateway is a soap opera. It's a sitcom. It's a black comedy about drug addiction. ... There's a voyeuristic quality to it--like watching a car crash. But it's also hard not to root for this out-of-control crew. I want them to win.
Bad Gateway feels like Hanselmann's going all out; giving us deeper character development, more depressing, yet relatable backstory and tragi-comic events than ever before. Hanselmann is hitting his stride and it's clear his over-arching narrative is now becoming satisfyingly cohesive. Not to be missed for fans of the series.
