    Easily this is the best collection of any comic this year. Sina Grace has crafted an essential collection for this generation of autobiographical comic creators. This is a must buy with my highest recommendation. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Mark William Pawziuk Apr 1, 2014

    Self-Obsessed is a gutsy comic that is not offered up very frequently by mainstream publishers. Like Bob Fingerman's Minimum Wage, (also from Image comics) Sina Grace's Self-Obsessed presents comic readers with real life stories from actual comic creators " their triumphs along with their struggles " and helps fans appreciate just how much goes into creating these "funnies."

    Capeless Crusader - Mike Sains Apr 1, 2014

    Self-Obsessed is a touching, emotional, raw self portrait of a man coming to terms with his own life using the only means he ever really knew how. Even though it lacks much action, the bold, gritty art fused with the utterly human dialogue gives this book all the punch it needs. I would recommend this book to someone who needs a reaffirmation that comic books can be much more than just popcorn entertainment. Someone who is seeking a cerebral experience that pulls no punches in it's sullen earnestness and forthright despair. But also an experience that lends a hand in providing you with some optimism in knowing that even through all of that raw angst and frustration, there can be peace. While rough around the edges and hard to take in all at once" Read Full Review

    Look, I get it, this guy is big right now. And I like his work!Walking Dead is great, I don't think any one would argue that. I wasinto Invincible! But this doesn't have anything to do with them. Thisdoesn't even come close to them. This is a collection of disjointedmemories, slice of life glimpses, and all in your head fantasies thatyou share with a best friend. I admire this guy's work, but I'm nothis best friend. The only reason you should buy this book is if you'realready obsessed with Sina Grace as he is. Read Full Review
