Praise for Hanawalt and My Dirty Dumb Eyes:
"Imagine a grown-up Richard Scarry turned absurdist social commentator."–Publishers Weekly Starred Review
"For years I've encountered Lisa Hanawalt's comics and illustrations piecemeal–in various magazines and periodicals. They're always a pleasant jolt. Now they've been assembled into one thick, blazing bludgeon. I envoy you getting walloped by them all for the first time. This is a Hanawalt assault. Succumb."–Patton Oswalt
Michael Kupperman is an American comic artist and humorist whose words and pictures have appeared everywhere from the New Yorker to Saturday Night Live. He has written four books and illustrated many more. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife Muire and son Ulysses.
Praise for Kupperman and Tales to Thrizzle:
"Imaginations come no wonkier, no dafter than Kupperman’s. His idea of a crime-fighting, daring, dynamic duo à la Bruce and Dick (Batman and Robin) is Twain and Einstein (Mark and Albert)-that is, when it's not a snake and a strip of bacon." –Ray Olson (Booklist)
