Reviews

"Combining a vintage comics aesthetic with vibrant, saturated colors... this fun and chaotic comic evokes underground punk zines through its blend of anger, heart, and anti-corporate themes. Lisa's self-doubt and journey to find her place and purpose will resonate, particularly with older teens and new adults, while the absurd hilarity and exciting action sequences will keep readers captivated." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Wry jokes about student-loan debt, joyless office jobs, and parents deriding artistic aspirations keep this grounded in realistic concerns, while the kaiju fights, boldly cartoonish characters, and acidic color palette give it a pulpy, underground-comics feel... sheer fun." -- Booklist

"Lisa Cheese and Ghost Guitar brought me back to the days when reading comics was taboo, full of subversion, provocation, and excitement. Alvir is a master of this style... I couldn't imagine a more perfect caper about magically corrupted foodstuffs, and that's just the beginning!" --Steve Orlando, writer of Scarlet Witch, Supergirl, and Midnighter

"This is raw and passionate cartooning that slaps. Visceral and violent one moment and endearingly cute the next, Lisa Cheese will charm anyone looking for a vigorous blast of pure comics." --James Kochalka, creator of Johnny Boo, Banana Fox, and American Elf

"This book is an insane delight, blending the struggle of life's mundanities with fun larger-than-life elements to create a fully realized yarn about finding your place amid all the craziness. Where else are you gonna see such dynamic rage over non-dairy coffee? I loved the heck out of it." --Nick Cagnetti, writer/artist of Pink Lemonade

"An utterly unhinged comic overflowing with wit, absurdity, and pure childlike energy. Kevin Alvir delivers one infectiously memeable panel after another. Highly addictive reading." --The Comic Book Couples Counseling Podcast
