Praise for Keyhole
“Ah the 90s, … a fertile time for indie comics, as cartoonists found more outlets for personal expression, and showcases like the Small Press Expo gave rise to a new generation of stars. Among the books that made a splash: Keyhole Comics, a collaboration between longtime friends Dean Haspiel and Josh Neufeld that featured quotidian slice of life comics, travel tales and the unforgettable character Billy Dogma.”
The Beat
 

“The stories of Josh and . . . Sari traveling through Thailand provide a street-level view of other cultures, with nothing whitewashed. . . . The lessons learned are basic but universal, made more relevant through seeing exactly how the travelers came to them. . . . The stories often remind us of the point of traveling — to experience and come to terms with the unknown, and ultimately to address your own spirituality and reason for being.”
— Comics Worth Reading

“(Two) talented young cartoonists who are aggressively exploring the comics medium.”
— Subliminal Tattoos

“Pushing the creative envelope to the limit.”
— World of Fandom

“One of the most thought-provoking, interesting, entertaining and all-out cool comics.”
— Poopsheet

“A head-on collision between American Splendor and Hate, but rest assured that its eccentric appeal is no accident.”
— Comic Shop News

“(Fans of) Acme Novelty Library or Zero Zero should check out this very mixed but highly entertaining bag.”
— Comics Buyer’s Guide

“A good mix of insightfulness and off-the-wall humor, with solid artwork throughout.”
— Bart Beaty
