PRESS, REVIEWS & INTERVIEWS

"VERDICT – A fine exemplar of comics journalism, this true story conveys suicide bombing from the perspective of bystanders, victims, and bombers. Educators of midteens and up can use it in classrooms, while other readers can learn about the human effects of violence through the poignant drama."

"For those who enjoyed Joe Sacco’s Palestine, or documentary enthusiasts who want something different in their collection, or lovers of a good true life story, Then Mike’s Place might be worth hanging out in for a while. It will definitely introduce you to the 'real' Israel of 2003. It’s a change, for sure."
