    Citizen Jack perfectly blurs the line between satire and social commentary. Its a cunning look at the American electoral process and biased media. This is a book that should be read and recognized as a culturally significant piece of art. If youve paid attention to American politics in the past ten years, then pay attention to Citizen Jack.

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Dec 2, 2015

    As a fan of fun political satire, I'm still really enjoying this book. Sure, it gets a bit silly at times – demons and talking dolphins do abound (though Cricket does remind me of a "cuter" version of the non-human outsider voice in something like Quinn's Ishmael). But it's an interesting application, albeit a somewhat flippant one, in the discussion on electability, and I for one am more than happy to continue to #GetJacked. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Dec 1, 2015

    Its strongest element is the character building of Jack which may pay off in the end. The demon and general premise is strong, but this issue drags on since it's really not funny enough to sustain the commentary. That said, this is a diabolical political commentary that should be noted now that we're in the heat of campaigns and their forthcoming buzzwordyness. Read Full Review

    This could easily be based on a true story, you know, minus the demon part. Politis have become so outrageous that this is barely satire, it might even be considered tame four years from now. This has got to be near the top of your pull file, it's so damn good!
