"MOME helps me stay on top of the coolest cartoonists in the industry... it's well worth the subscription." – USA Today Pop Candy
"Strip of the Year: 'Not Quite Dead' by Gilbert Shelton and Pic... With a style that seems strung from spider-webs, popping veins, worried brow-wrinkles and tangled vines and an eye for absurd posturing, both undiminished by five decades and whatever art-supplies hes been sniffing, Sheltons dystopian vaudeville is a vision you can never predict of species-wide misbehavior which remains, alas, just like you remembered it." – Adam McGovern, ComicCritique.Com
