“A fantastic ear for dialogue and an uncanny ability to pick up on contemporary mores to make some of the funniest work around”
– Mark Sinclair, Creative Review
“Collins’s stick figures are ordinary people trying to deal with incomprehensible, often horrendous circumstances […] Collins is a young man already equipped with the mordant gloom and brutal cynicism of the career cartoonist, and this is a fine first collection.”
– Marcus Berkmann, The Spectator
“A slightly 1950s style and a genuine GSOH”
– New Statesman
“An absolute pleasure to read and look at, whilst being witty and sharp enough to get the old cogs into gear- easily ingested but difficult to pull off. […] It’s been a fantastic year for collected volumes of authors works, and this ranks amongst the best”.
– Zainab Akhtar, Comics and Cola
“This may be the most beautifully illustrated collection of gag strips I have ever seen”
– Jonathan Rigby, Page45.com.
“Some Comics is a fantastically funny thing”
– Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet International
