Flocks is one of the most powerful works I've read... ...It's remarkable in that it avoids judgement and preachiness in her handling of what are generally perceived as extremely sensitive subjects... ...a searingly honest piece of work. -- Comics Beat (Nichols) brings an instantly apparent, appealing, and accessible intensity of emotion and craft to whatever she's doing, in whatever vein. -- The Comics Journal The intimacy of a mini-comic that deals with an issue close to the heart of the author and reader can make for powerful reading... ...My own personal experience came later than it did for Nichols, but I can still feel the pain and fear on every page of her comic as though it were my own. -- Panel Patter Nichols's incredibly empathetic and humane autobio series about the various groups that have had an impact on their life reaches an almost unbearable point of agony and then resolves in an unexpected but remarkably hopeful way... ...After extending empathy, compassion, understanding and the benefit of the doubt to everyone else, Nichols finally gave it to themself. The joy and radiance in Nichols's line at this point fairly bursts off the page. -- High-Low
