For Jusay Pulp

"Issue One of Jeremy Jusay's Jusay Pulp is a stunningly-illustrated comic ode to '80s New Wave. I'm insanely envious of illustrators who can work in black-and-white, and Jusay's deft handling of his inks is in the greatest tradition of Los Bros Hernandez. The story is absolutely charming as well, and if you've ever wanted to see the ghostly incarnation of Joy Division disrupt a mugging, then THIS IS YOUR BOOK, friend."

For Karass & The Strange Ones

"Just wanted to say how much I really, really enjoyed reading The Strange Ones starring Franck & Anjeline. I finally had some time to a little morning reading during my travel to Montreal and I had to read it all in one sitting I couldn't put it down. I was sad when I finished reading it and I didn't have any more to read. I definitely look forward to reading more comics from you, you have a new fan in me."

Yumi Sakugawa, "I Think I Am In Friend-Love With You"



"A vivacious little zine full of humanity and ambition."
-

Carly Lewis, Broken Pencil



"A humane and lively publication."
-

Kurt Vonnegut



"A fine journal of post-adolescent suicidal introspective discourse."
-

Ink Nineteen



"Very personal, real."
-

Red Fins Komics



"Great illustrations...The Strange Ones is a damn good comic."
-

Futility



"This is my favorite fanzine of all time. In issue #7 there is a quote from The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. Throughout the issues I've seen references to The Pale Saints and Belly but mostly this is a literary/comic fanzine. It is filled with ongoing stories that continue with each issue and real feelings that allow the reader to immediately relate."
-

Starethrough



"It's a good zine...the comics make you feel warm inside, and happy that you're sitting there reading them."
-

The Rain...



"Jeremy Jusay heads up this team of artists and poets emanating from SVA. His stories are dark and brooding and beautiful to look at."
-

Checkerboard Kids



"Karass - Beautiful comic entitled The Strange Ones follows a couple of teenagers through NYC, while poems like 'A Conversation with Sis,' 'Dunkin Donuts,' and 'A Day at Friendly's' take a thoughtful look at day-to-day life."
-

The New Museum of Contemporary Art



"Karass #8, the anniversary issue, by Jeremy: geegollygonads, this wins first place for art. The comics are T-rific...I'm so envious. His little theatershow called The Strange Ones starring Franck and Anjeline is really beautiful. The story line is realistic. Beats Melrose Place. Franck always has a different slogan on his button, which is enuf to make you order this. The melancholy poetry helps balance it all out."
-

Cheshire



"Jeremy makes beautiful comics. We are quite diFFerent in that he is artistically talented. Part of why his stuFF rocks is cos I'm always like: how is this written by a boy? His big project is The Strange Ones which seems to be the ongoing tales of Franck and Anjeline. They are tearworthy if yr in a sweet enuf mood."

What I Would've Asked



For "Battle Cry" from Bloody Pulp Magazine #1

"Battle Cry is a war story. Just to give you an idea, thinking Hernandez - kind of a cross between Jaime and Gilberto in style and storytelling. Extremely well-done. Just good, solid story-telling."
-

Bruce Rosenberger (Comic Book Noise)



For Portfolio

"Jeremy Jusay [is an] interesting artist with a lively interactive website...Well done, Jeremy, you've earned our praise."
-

Shout Magazine



For "Commute"

"The best feature [of Jeremy Jusay Portfolio] is an interactive game about traveling through the New York Transit system. Any game that you win by going home and going back to sleep, truly understands its slacker audience."
-

Shout Magazine



For "I Close My Eyes"

"I found it very compelling! The art is wonderful—you have a good eye! I like the dialogue and introspection. And finally a graphic novel that is devoid of action, sex and violence. This has heart and also displays that we 'dreamers' share the same sensibilities."
-

Francisco Aliwalas



"...Wonderful and bittersweet..."
-

Jesse Reklaw, nonDairy Comics



For "Circumcised at 13"

"A quick, well-done anecdotal story that the title describes quite well."
-

Kluttered Visions



For

Re-Lease

"Depressing shit. Therefore, it is good...It's a comic about a petty love crush to die for, about how the most insignificant things—or so they may appear to others—are usually the most important. Highly recommended."
-

Futility



For

Semen

"Some songs are kinda cheesy, but I actually thought that most of them were really good."
