“There’s a lot of interesting stuff in Spiegelman’s intro, and in the afterword by John Pound, the artist who originated and drew the bulk of the Kids. But the real reason to buy this book is for the graphic brilliance of the art itself.” —Boston Phoenix

If you ask me, reliving my time with Bad Breath Seth and Potty Scotty is worth the cover price alone.” —

“I worried that [the Garbage Pail Kids] might seem too time-bound for their own good; but if anything they’re more poignant. Maybe it’s because I’m a worried, concerned adult, but more likely it’s because nothing is ever as funny as it is when you’re ten years old—and everything is a lot scarier.” —
