Page 45 Review by Mark

"Vanessa Davis' principal character is a young woman whose Renoiresque form belies her seething inner life… The quotidian structure of much of SPANIEL RAGE presents the reader with glimpses of a life as it is being lived. We follow a young woman's meandering path into adulthood in this beautifully drawn, intelligent portrait of Self coming into its own."

- Phoebe Gloeckner, creator of DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL

"Miss Davis's comics are charming, funny and honest, with a mysterious, compelling rhythm that is all her own."

- Daniel Clowes, creator of WILSON, GHOST WORLD, PATIENCE etc

"Drawn in a line that is at once delicate, immediate, and genuine, SPANIEL RAGE captures all of the little moments that make up being alive. Vanessa Davis puts life to paper like no one else."

- Sammy Harkham, creator of CRICKETS, editor of KRAMERS ERGOT

A very more-ish book. Tried to dip into it and ended up reading the whole thing. It's only life and it's only lines on paper but she's got that Lynda Barry confessional tone and the awkwardness of Debbie Dreschler's figures and a lot of Vanessa Davis in there.

Friends, fights, misunderstandings, phone calls and more.

- Mark Simpson, co-creator of Page 45 (written May 2005).

He was always succinct, was our Mark.
