In his review of MUSH!, Anchorage Press writer Jamie Smith exclaims,
This book should be enshrined in the outhouse as required and repeat reading
For a book like MUSH, I'm not sure there's much higher of a compliment than that! He also had many nice things to say about the book's refreshing take on talking animal comics and its authentic depiction of mushing. Jamie also talks at length about the art. Unlike most reviewers, Jamie brings a great deal of comics related experience to the table. He's taught comics and comic art at the University of Alaska as well as being a comics creator in his own right. His weekly cartoon, Nuggets, has appeared in the Anchorage Press and Fairbanks Daily News-Miner since 1988. In talking about the art for MUSH! he had this to say,
Infurnari’s artwork here is exceptional—his loose, sketchy linework using a Japanese manga quill pen lends a spontaneity to the drawings that thoroughly suits the subject matter
I could continue to quote this piece but I think it best for you to read it in its entirety here.
It was a pleasure talking about MUSH with Jamie who brings a rare enthusiasm for the medium informed by decades of experience creating comics. Please go take a look at the review and while you're at it, go take a look at this nice gallery of Nuggets and other work by him.
