"Its blacks and blacks and more blacks hammer into one's minds and guts. It is a recitation without uplift, a score card of defeats.
Tethers have run out. Only dead ends remain. Smoke has denoted fire and fire burns to ash." Bob Levin. The Comics Journal.
"In Tongues Illustrated is a paper product that, like toilet paper and the Bible,
belongs in every home. Buy it and dig it or continue on your dreary way to the mass
grave of mediocrity." Nick Tosches.
"Disorientation is common when viewing scathing white hot truths such as those
contained in Dockery's comics." Jeffrey Scott Holland, author of Weird Kentucky.
"...the artwork is mezmerizing like it's the backwoods basterd child of a psychedelic
Richard Sala and a countrified Rory Hayes." Tom Neely. "F#%kin' J.T. Dockery,"
