    "The Big Lebowski by way of Twin Peaks, Tom Manning's Eric is a psychedelic acid trip of Lovecraftian proportions, blending humor, heart, and horror to deliver a uniquely compelling comic book experience."
    -ANDREW COSBY
    Hellboy, Eureka


    "To find a wholly original comic is unusual. To find one deeply emotional, doubly so. Eric is the rare thing that is both."
    -MICHAEL GREEN
    Logan, Blade Runner 2049, Y: The Last Man


    "Eric is visionary, suspenseful, funny, scary, beautiful, mind-warping, meaningful...In other words, it s a Tom Manning book. READ THIS BOOK!"
    -ELLIOTT KALAN
    Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Spider-Man and the X-Men


    "Tom Manning is an unassuming, but brilliant comic book creator. Revealed in a slow burn and always mind bending, his books seemingly defy categorization and are strictly for thinking readers."
    -FANBOY CONFIDENTIAL


    "A masterpiece...Tom Manning blurs realities and creates interwoven worlds that—despite seeming impossible—contribute to an understanding of the real world."

    "Tom Manning has created a world that is as bizarre as it is recognizable. As scary as it is moving."
    -GUILLERMO DEL TORO


    "[Manning's] latest masterpiece, Runoff, gives an entirely new dimension to the world of comics, providing readers with a refreshingly one-of-a-kind experience."
    -HARVARD BOOK REVIEW


    "Runoff is terrifying, hilarious, bizarre, beautiful and utterly unforgettable."
    -ANGELA KANG, WRITER & EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF THE WALKING DEAD


    "Manning has created a unique piece of fiction that can be appreciated by graphic novel aficionados as well as any avid reader, which is no small feat."
    -THE HUFFINGTON POST


    "Given the choice between world peace and Runoff, I would choose world peace, but just barely."
    -NICK NUNZIATA


    "Runoff is a major accomplishment in both writing and art, standing out in stark contrast from anything else in the medium."
    -COMICREADERS.COM


    "The deceptively raw art and homespun aesthetic belie a horror-comedy narrative that is as complex as Twin Peaks, with an epic, mysterious and horrific conclusion."
    -GIANT ROBOT MAGAZINE


    "Runoff has to be one of the most refreshing reading experiences I've had in years."
    -TOO MUCH COFFEE MAN


    "It's really the best comic book I've ever read."
    -POPIMAGE
