Press Highlights:

"Drew Friedman is an amazing artist. More Heroes Of The Comics is absolutely stunning. It stirred memories of long ago when I met and worshipped some of these stars on the nascent comic book world. This is a trove of sweet nostalgia." — Al Jaffee

"The two volume Heroes set is scholarly and popular at the same time, and represents a milestone in the early history of comic books. Drew Friedman himself is a hero of comics for making it." — BoingBoing

"Drew Friedman’s More Heroes of the Comics is a comics nerd’s delight. Friedman’s voice on the subject of comics is always a treat." — Steven Heller PRINT

 "Friedman's portraits also captures a certain something — his art is an actor, emoting on behalf of his subjects in a way that the text cannot by itself" — Under the Radar

"Friedman’s drawings of people imbue them with soul instead of simply laying there on the page. Tiny flourishes, visual in-jokes, and a painstaking attention to the right details give each portrait of a figure from comics history a visceral, almost animated quality." — The Comics Journal
