Introduction by Aaron Cometbus

"Playfully drawn and provocatively written, the memoir reinforces Bell's standing among the first rank of the genre's artists." — Kirkus Reviews

"You could say The Voyeurs is the work of a writer’s writer, but it’s actually something more cool, more exotic, more punk: a rare glimpse of the fiercely mysterious human heart, observed in its natural habitat." — Kim O'Connor, The Comics Journal

"The Voyeurs is the work of a mature writer, if not one of the most sincere voices of her literary generation. It's a fun, honest read that spans continents, relationships and life decisions. I loved it." — Chris Ware, Acme Novelty Library

"Alternating between funny, surreal recreations of her life as a globe-trotting celebrity indie cartoonist, and never ending neu-rotically obsessive self-examinations of her moods, comics, and friends, Bell's newest comics memoir is an oddball delight." — The Best Books of 2012, Publishers Weekly

"This may well be my favorite comic of 2012." — Rob Clough, High-Low
