    PopMatters - Michael D. Stewart Sep 23, 2012

    We must too. That is what makes The Li'l Depressed Boy #13 such a complete comic. It works in terms of structure, it works in terms of probability to reality, it works in terms of character development, and it works in terms of visual aesthetic. It's a ragdoll protagonist pursuing the relationship of his dreams, facing the harsh reality of a situation he never considered. And there's a popcorn popper firing hot buttered shrapnel. You could simply not ask for more. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Sep 19, 2012

    Helping this surreal world find life is the beautifully understated art of Sina Grace. The work here is focused only on the characters within the panel. Spike and LDB are drawn beautifully, with a real sense of delicate pencil strokes and moderate inking. Grace’s backgrounds are usually clean, devoid of too much detail and there only to give the characters a framework to exist in. Much like the writing, the art in Li'l Depressed Boy makes its point subtly and skillfully. Though it doesn’t come out nearly enough, every issue of this series is a treat. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - thorverine Sep 19, 2012

    Struble and Grace continue to pull the reader into a story of the highs and lows of a little featureless character who strikes out with the ladies. This is another strong installment in the current arc, and I'm really looking forward to where it goes. I give LDB #13 a 4/5. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Sep 20, 2012

    LDB doesn’t try to cheer you up or tell you how you can improve your life. No, this comic is like a friend who stays with you and suffers with you until things get better. It’s great to have that type of empathy come from a comic book. Read Full Review

    What might be the real hook of Lil' Depressed Boy is the relationship that the character has with fans that are just like him. Read Full Review
