Eisner Award Nominee - Best Humor Publication

"Jim Benton has my number. Page after page made me laugh out loud. It's all twisted and hilarious. What more could you possibly want from a book?" -R.L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps series

"Jim Benton's comics are not always funny; sometimes they're moving. But they're not always moving; sometimes they are really deep. But they're not always deep; sometimes they're caustic. But they are not always caustic; sometimes they're just funny. Anyway, they are good. Always REALLY good." -Boulet, French comic book creator and cartoonist

"There are no duds whatsoever in this collection, every cartoon made uslaugh - some for ages. We quickly became that annoying person who keepscalling everyone over to look at something when they're trying to work."Look at this one though!" "OK, seriously, this is the best one." "LOOKIT'S YOU IN BEAR FORM" and so on. We have no friends left, but nor dohalf the people in the cartoons, which made us feel better." - Holly Brockwell,

"Moving on, Jim Benton is a madman. His comics are a brilliant breath of fresh air in a webcomics smoking lounge, but he's still a madmannonetheless." - Cameron Hatheway,

"...this cartoon collection for "People and Advanced Bears" is silly, witty, and laugh-out-loud fun." - Erica Sadun
