SCOTT MCCLOUD: "Tales Of The Closet was a ground-breaking series in its time-and still is now. There should be more comics like this."

KURT BUSIEK: "TOTC is absolutely compelling – heartfelt, engaging and important. Once you pick it up, you won't want to put it down. And once you finish it, you'll join the rest of us and wish there was more."

ALISON BECHDEL: "Ivan Velez Jr. is a master of the comics form. That's all there is to it."

THE ADVOCATE: "Ivan Velez's darkly authentic comic books, with their urban locales and themes of loneliness, violence and depression address teenagers on their own level... infused with all the angst, drama, and confusion of a teen coming to terms with his or her own homosexuality."

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: "It is a testament to his ability to create interesting characters..."

THE GAY COMICS LIST: "Ivan Velez manages to build very warm and believable characters, full of energy and hopes."

    The Introduction was right- this IS addictive. I feel it's so much more down to earth that what i've been reading lately, and the art style is great.

    Such an amazing crew. Everyone of them is endearing in their own way. I like how every member of the group has their own fears and struggle, yet still manage to find common-ground between them. I like Shorty and Jenny because they make me laugh the most. I'm also pulling for the Jenny/Ramona relationship.

    I admit I wasn't so interested in the drawing style but this book is really good. It sucks that people are so cruel to those who are different. I'm lucky that it's not like that at my school. We actually have several people (myself included) who will beat you up if you're nasty to gays.

    Wow. Pretty different material from things that I have been seeing here. But different isn't a bad thing. At first, I was totally turned off by the drawing, but my thinking changed when I got into the story--actually as soon as I picked up this series. The mosts interesting part of this series is that it's interesting from the very beginning. It doesn't take half the book to get into the meat of the situation/drama. I really appreciated that. Plus, the way the characters are introduced are done seemlessly--it totally flows. Major props to standing against the status quo.
