On Everything Takes Forever:
“This collection of comics and drawings by this New Yorker and New York Times illustrator is a showcase of talent – featuring varying styles and subject matter, and including, of course, Taco Head.” — Benn Ray, Largehearted Boy
On Very Casual and Lose #5:
“First, there’s a new issue of one of the hottest underground comics going on right now, Lose. It’s a collection of trippy, weird and entertaining short stories – it’s sort of like Adventure Time for grown-ups. Then, Very Causal collects a number of Deforge’s non-Lose stories – his contributions to websites, anthologies and mini-comics. Also weirdly excellent.” — Benn Ray, Largehearted Boy
