"No one does giddy surrealism quite like Kupperman…" – "The Best Comics of the '00s," The A.V. Club

"If God didn't hate us all, we'd live in a world where there'd be some way for Michael Kupperman, Johnny Ryan, and Matt Furie to do a world tour in every way the humor comics equivalent of that Guns n' Roses/Metallica/Faith No More tour my parents wouldn't let me go to back in '91 — selling out stadiums, inspiring bootleg T-shirts sold in parking lots filled with drunk drivers, and causing riots when Ryan gets in a fistfight with Stephanie Seymour and blows off a show in Toronto out of frustration. But here we are, and the best we can do is get a new issue of Tales Designed to Thrizzleand laugh ourselves stupid." – Sean T. Collins

"Is there anything more delightful than a new issue of Michael Kupperman’s hilarious comics? …I submit to you that there is not." – Newsarama

"Be warned: This comic is dangerously funny… A masterpiece of absolutely gut-busting comedy. The entire Wizardoffice was rendered completely helpless by its hysterical tales… Trust us, this is a future cult classic." – Wizard

"Seriously, go to your local comics shop and buy this. In fact, buy everything Michael Kupperman's ever done. Not only is he hysterical, he's a major influence on my comedy." – Graham Linehan, creator of Father Ted and The IT Crowd
