Praise for Garbage Pail Kids:
and#160;"If you ask me, reliving my time with Bad Breath Seth and Potty Scotty is worth the cover price alone." and#8212;USAToday.com
"I worried that [the Garbage Pail Kids] might seem too time-bound for their own good; but if anything, 27 years later, theyand#8217;re more poignant. Maybe itand#8217;s because Iand#8217;m a worried, concerned adult, but more likely itand#8217;s because nothing is ever as funny as it is when youand#8217;re ten years oldand#8212;and everything is a lot scarier." and#8212;CapitalNewYork.comand#160;
"The book is a wonderfully designed tribute to these shit-disturbing cards in all their graphic, full-color glory." and#8212;ComicsBeat.com
"There's a lot of interesting stuff in Spiegel man's intro, and in the afterward by John Pound, the artist who originated and drew the bulk of the Kids. But the real reason to buy this book is for the graphic brilliance of the art itselfand#8230;" and#8212;Boston Phoenix
