RaveThe Comic JournalLutes’ research is impeccably accurate and his drawing style is detailed beyond almost anything anyone has ever done in comics ... Many of the panels are worthy of study for hours at a time. Unlike too many of today’s comic artists, Lutes is not afraid to tackle drawing crowds ... Activity is often broken down into tiny details, and actions of a second or two can take many panels to relate. The effect of it all comes across as a newsreel ... We need more books like this to warn us against the easy, \'final\' solutions ... It seems a shame that an artist such as Jason Lutes cannot sell enough copies of this masterpiece to make producing it his full-time profession.
