★ Nicholas's innovative tale, brimming with fully fleshed out characters and bombastic battle sequences, is one to revisit again and again. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

This is a silly and fun-filled story with a heartwarming throughline about not needing special abilities to have an impact on one's community... A solid, action-filled comedy with a crucial message. -- Kirkus Reviews

Jamar Nicholas delivers an engaging story about finding your own power... an uplifting read. -- Book Riot

It's a refreshing change of pace to have a kid hero who's Black at the center of the story. Supersize panels with bold coloring truly make the stylized character designs pop and the action sequences come to life with plenty of classic superhero action. The various body types and skin tones represented in the artwork underscore the narrative that anyone can be a hero. -- Booklist

Praise for Fist Stick Knife Gun, illustrated by Jamar Nicholas:

This is exactly the sort of broadly appealing and gripping nonfiction graphic novel that librarians need to be adding to their shelves. -- Publishers Weekly

Jamar Nicholas is a master of his craft -- his drawings are full of life and truly stunning. -- Bryan Lee O'Malley, creator of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
