Editorial Reviews

See You Next Tuesday is a showcase for Mai's extensive abilities, and the most comprehensive evidence yet of her significance as one of contemporary cartooning's most capable talents." - Zainab Akhtar, Comics & Cola"It's a good comic if you love shit and piss and can't handle your feelings. So that should be everyone who reads this website [ VICE]." - Nick Gazin, VICE"Whether being sweetly vulnerable, humorously self-involved, piercingly critical, or just flat out crudely hilarious, the Jane Mai of See You Next Tuesday is fun to hang out with." - Rob Kirby, The Comics Journal"Mai's diary comics are a prism, fracturing and projecting myriad Jane Mais onto comics pages. All that we can tell about the real Jane Mai for sure, based on the resultant work, is that she's really funny, and able to alchemically take some pretty distressing or depressing topics and turn them into funny comics." - J. Caleb Mozzocco, ComicsAlliance"I think fans of Kate Beaton and Noelle Stevenson (and probably Meredith Gran-my favorite webcomic is by her) would dig Jane Mai." - Susie Rodarme, Book Riot" See You Next Tuesdayis an often laugh-out-loud funny collection of comics, illustrations, and short text pieces that spotlights the cartoonist's sharp timing, simple but expressive linework, and dark, occasionally crass sense of humor." - Oliver Sava, A. V. Club"What's great about [Mai's] stories is that every issue, from sex to scat to culture, is simultaneously treated in a mocking but intellectually curious fashion." - Rob Clough, High-Low"Jane Mai is an artist specializing in food, eye patches, and bugs. Her work stands at the intersection of cute and disturbing." - Ivan Hernandez, Boing Boing"Mai's art is singular and original, yet carries echoes of Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, with its dreamy contrast of darkness, surrealism, and childlike whimsy." - Terell Paris, IndieReader Praise for Sunday in the Park with Boys" Sunday in the Park with Boys is about what depression feels like from the inside, although it never explicitly says so. Instead, Mai represents what David Foster Wallace called "the bad thing" as a centipede-like creature, growing and devouring, slithering and embracing her protagonist. It's almost unbearable to read and yet the book's minimalism and Mai's smart sense of pacing (some pages have many panels, some only one or two) contributes to the effectiveness of her story." - Hillary Brown, Paste Magazine"The first time I read the comic, I found it depressing; on rereading I began to see how the character comes to grips with what is going on in her mind to transcend it and that the story expresses a sort of universality of lonesome youth." - James Romberger has drawn graphic novels for Vertigo/DC "
