"A strange and wonderful story in comics."

Los Angeles Times Book Review


"Marvelously dark and funny . . . Simeon Mills evokes adolescent awkwardness so well."

J. Robert Lennon, novelist and editor of Okey-Panky


"Butcher Paper is one of the strangest, most potent and most humane tales you can find between book covers anywhere. It will unsettle you in all the best ways."

Shawn Vestal, author of Daredevils and Godforsaken Idaho


"This is super neat and funny! you will think to yourself . . . This is sick and messed up! you will amend yourself, reaching the comic's gleefully heinous conclusion."

Katy Waldman, Slate
