“James Marshall . . . smashes the crap out of boundaries for what may be acceptable in terms of both content and format, using both to make some interesting statements about life in an absurd, mindless, consumerist society that thrives on sound bites and internet memes.”

“. . . you can see the underlying complexity and sheer convention-defying balls that Marshall is truly writing with.”
