The stories, like the Peach himself, are tempered with a sense of humanity...The Peach is a great character, not simply because of his dashing good looks and politeness, but also because he is a fully dimensional, well-rounded character. The stories are funny and touching.--MIKE KAZALEH, INKER, REN AND STIMPYThis is one of the few comics I eagerly look forward to. Theres so much going on, I can read em over and over and still get something new from em. On this little stage set in North Africa around 1940 are played out some of the most intricately-crafted comedy-dramas this medium has to offer.--ROBERTA GREGORY, ARTISTIC LICENTIOUSNESS, WINGING IT, and NAUGHTY BITSThanks for your excellent work- I think you are among the best in comics today.--MICHAEL VANCE, SUSPENDED ANIMATIONThis book is heart-warmingly individual, funny, irreverent and quite simply brilliant in its concept and execution. I cant praise it enough for its constant breaking-down of stereotypes.--PAUL BIRCH, COMICS INTERNATIONALThe woman could draw on a shovel with a rock.--CHUCK MELVILLE, MU PRESS/AEON
