"The series makes sense of Harkham's ever-changing tastes by publishing work he admires, and presents it in considered sequence through measured, thoughtful design.

"The latest issue finds underground icons such as Kim Deitch appearing side-by-side with some of today’s brightest talents, including Michael Deforge, Julia Gfrörer, and Anya Davidson. The short length of the contributions promises an exhilarating, surprising read — and one that’s sure to have people talking." — Broken Frontier
