"Lonnie Allen's USA WAR Instruction Manual is reminiscent of the agitprop to be found for the past couple of decades in World War Three Illustrated, using a clip-art style to comment on out-of-control U.S. aggression quite pointedly.  [Lonnie Allen's and Matt Dembecki's] are the stand out pieces..." 
-Alan David Doane, Comic Book Galaxy
"An intergalactic bounty hunter who speaks in Haiku, an abortion, a monkey with a robot head, pneumonia, and small town prejudice; what do these all have in common? They all carry a common theme of love and loss. Newcomer, Lonnie Allen weaves them together in a wonderful melancholic fabric of fiction." 
-Lisa Jonte, Sequential Tart
