“The book reaches its emotional and thematic heights with the actual workshops. Bennett is at his most animated, antsy and assured and his drawing reflects as much. His faith in comics and cartooning is abiding and infectious… he’s a proselytizer all right, an apostle, and over the course of the trip you’ll find his is a belief honestly come by. You’d wish it for all fellow travelers.” — Rich Kreiner, The Comics Journal

“This is an engrossing work…  This is the kind of thing that should be taught in schools to show what we’re capable of as a race if we just stop to listen to what the other side is saying.”Optical Sloth
