"There’s no way Jack Kerouac, along with every other self-consciously cool person in New York, wasn’t reading this. O’Malley turns into Neal Cassady, the guy who’s not quite human, who never shuts up, who drives you crazy, and who can make anything happen, just like that." – Griel Marcus, The Believer

"…[Barnaby] radiates human warmth and whimsy… The artist’s brilliantly-written characters… keep their feet planted in the all-too-real world of 1940s America while flying off on pink wings into one of the greatest fantasy strips ever made.” – Art Spiegelman

“Yes, there are dozens of other strips worth rereading, but none are this Great; this is great like Beethoven, or Steinbeck, or Picasso. This is so great it lives in its own timeless bubble of oddness and truth…” – Chris Ware

"I think, and I’m trying to talk calmly, that Barnaby and his friends and oppressors are the most important additions to American arts and letters in Lord knows how many years." – Dorothy Parker
