"All of life is struggle, of course, and Jon’s deftly rendered mutants are struggling up one heck of a storm. Struggling with each other, struggling with nature, struggling to get out of their own fucking skin. It leaves a hell of a mess, with all of your favorite bodily fluids competing as signifiers." - David E. Williams, www.davidewilliams.com

“courageous dissents and outraged howls against the demoralizing suck of dominant America culture...really taut, cool stuff; not feeble-minded, PC hipster, stick figure, conceptual, poor man’s origami, foldy zine bullshit.”
