Praise For Paul Moves Out

Praise for Michel Rabagliati:

“Both funny and touching, Michel Rabagliati’s Paul Has a Summer Job has an authenticity sorely lacking in most forms of entertainment, not least of all comix . . . It reminds you of what you really enjoy literature for—the chance to connect to others and what’s real—and get away from superficiality and irony.” —

“Rabagliati’s confessional writing is free of self-loathing, and his black-and-white panels eschew halftones for a spirited line that adeptly conveys the messiness and joy of youth.” —Ed Park, The Village Voice
