"Grant Morrison plays with layout and narrative like no other comic writer, not just breaking the fourth wall but dismantling it screw by screw. He is a mad genius in the vein of Alan Moore, and his revitalization of DC third-stringer Animal Man is where he left his first footprint on the comics industry. A must-read." - Andrew

"If you hand me a book and tell me I have to read it, it's going to be a slog for me; the quality almost doesn't matter when my sheer stubbornness comes into play. So it is a testament to the caliber of Harper Lee's masterpiece that - despite my first encounter with it as high school assigned reading - I've reread it multiple times. This book defines what a classic should be." - Andrew

"Neal Stephenson perfectly toes the line between cyberpunk staple and well-crafted satire to the point that I will recommend this book to friends simply to get their opinions on the matter. Either way, it's an incredibly fun romp following Hiro Protagonist through universes both real and digital." - Andrew
