"If the Daniel Clowes cover intrigues you, and you want to a good introduction to the odder and more idiosyncratic side of comics today, there are few guides more knowledgeable than Brunetti, and few books more useful than his Anthologies."--Andrew Wheeler, ComicMix--Andrew Wheeler"ComicMix" (12/16/2008)

"Another far-reaching set of comics that range from the 1920s to 2008. As with the first book, the genius of this second Anthology is in its organization, which groups pieces not by year or subject, but by association. . . . A."--Onion A.V. Club-- (11/07/2008)

"Good grief, what a book this is--a hyperactive, periodically insane dive into the archaeology of alternative comics, the sort of book you long to present to people with no interest in the medium and watch as it removes the top of their heads and gives their brains a good stir."--Independent on Sunday
