Reviews

"Tamaki's sense of comedy and pacing owes a lot to Charles Schulz's "Peanuts," although her subject matter is decidedly less innocent. And she delights in breaking her own rules: Her artwork is black-and-white except when she throws in impish splashes of color, drawn with broad, rough brush strokes except when it's composed of felt-tip scribbles or shimmering digital gray." --New York Times

"SuperMutant Magic Academy... exudes an irresistible wit." --The Guardian

"This collection is a great read for comic fans and genre newbies alike." --Bust Magazine

"[SuperMutant Magic Academy] is smart, thoughtful, and too hilarious to gobble down in just one sitting." --Bitch Magazine

"When it comes down to it, this is one of the best books... of any kind to come out in a long time." --Autostraddle

"The humor [in SuperMutant Magic Academy] is sometimes slapstick, but more often it offers ultra-dry observations on modern disengagement. Tamaki is playful and loose with her art, unafraid to be experimental as she draws us into a world where true feelings are the greatest danger." --Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"Though Tamaki's black and white panels shift from detailed and realistic to dreamy and atmospheric and back again, she consistently and expertly captures subtle emotion and subtext with only a few strokes of the pen. [SuperMutant Magic Academy is] simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious." --Booklist Starred Review

"SuperMutant Magic Academy will reassure teenagers that high school is a weird place, even for humans, and will remind adults that it is an experience we never really outgrow." --Winnipeg Free Press
