Praise for Titans of Finance:
A brilliant use of the medium.
— James J. Cramer

 

These accounts of the lives of the sometimes rich and frequently unscrupulous hit the mark with their irony and sharp observation.
— Harvey Pekar

Dissections of executive arrogance and mismanagement. … Superman never pounded businessmen-gone-bad the way Titans of Finance does.
— James M. Pethokoukis, U.S. News & World Report

Sharp and fearless. The comic book is hilarious — or it would be if it weren’t all true. Recommended reading.
— Nell Minow, The Corporate Library

 

I have always been fascinated by the men behind the curtain, the actual faces that make up faceless corporations. Titans of Finance is an amazing and much needed work that shows that the machine is made not only made of real people, but made of really odd people. My only complaint is that I didn’t think of it first.
Rich Mackin, author of Dear Mr. Mackin

Junk finance, with pictures.
The New York Times

A delightful book, fascinating reading, and an amazing accomplishment. A+.
— Cliff Biggers, Comics Buyers Guide

Strange.
The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune

A tad preachy at times.
— Ken Kurson

A fine antidote to the free-enterprise hype ladled out by ‘capitalist tool’ media outlets like Forbes and Money.… Hilarious.
