• "Jill Thompson's Scary Godmother is another of this comics maestro's knockout punches. Thompson delivers a series that shrugs off the censors like the dead weight they are and writes and draws directly at readers of all ages, all experience. Her work is always a delight, and much more: her craft, her precision, her delicious whimsy, all serve as a goad to the rest of us cartoonists to have as much fun as she's obviously enjoying, and to work our butts off as hard as she does. She only makes it look easy. That's the sign of a master."—Frank Miller
• "A beautiful and ambitious piece of work."—Alex Ross
