    "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


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


    "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
    The Flop House, MST 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


    "Eric functions as a definitive California artwork, yet does so despite — or perhaps because — it transgresses generic boundaries."
    -LOS ANGELES REVIEW OF BOOKS


    "It’s rather spectacular how Manning has been able to create this surreal world without making it too unfamiliar. This would not have been possible, however, without the help of the unique characters that makes his graphic novel so compelling."
    -INDIE TOASTER

    "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
