“Every choice made by Kurt Ankeny in his visually ambitious, restless, and innovative cartooning — every line and letter, moment of color and mark on the page — feels completely his own. These unforgettable comics, unforgettable and bold, are unlike anything else I’ve ever seen. I am so thrilled this book (and its creator) exist.” Matt Fraction

“Kurt Ankeny’s comics explore the nuances of the human condition with keen observation, versatility, and wistful poeticism.” Whit Taylor

“In Pleading with Stars, Ankeny employs variations made available by his deft application of line and colour to illustrate quietly observed moments of humanity and subtle dignity.” Connor Willumsen
