"Finally, your book-on-comics for the week – a newly expanded hardcover edition of Alexander Theroux’s 2000 profile of the famed author and illustrator." – Joe McCulloch, Comics Comics

"Fantagraphics have expanded and updated The Strange Case of Edward Gorey, a book that originally came out around the time of his death in 2000. Written by novelist Alexander Theroux, it’s a book about Gorey’s work as well as the enigmatic bearded man himself: Theroux knew him personally for over thirty years so it’s pitched as both a loving and an analytical portrait of the artist." – The Gosh! Comics Blog

"Alexander Thoreaux’s examination of one of the most influential American artists to ever put pen to paper is a lovely-looking, $20, 170-page hardcover." – J. Caleb Mozzocco, Newsarama
