Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The strength of Kochalka's composition, the bold sureness of his line and the consistency of his vision all suggest that he knows exactly how to draw the way he wants to. If that's not craft, what is?" — Douglas Wolk, The Washington Post

"The Cute Manifesto is a good, fun read, which is perhaps the most important element of all, because when you take those qualities away from comics, you're left staring at a blank page..." — Brian Heater, Ink19

Douglas Wolk

—The Washington Post
