Select praise for THE BEEF:
“A fantastically-weird comic that is equal parts Silver Age fun and indie comics attitude and execution.” —Monkeys Fighting Robots
“A modern day Hulk for the food conscious.” —The Beat
“Kane’s deliberately flat, grotesque style makes the book a queasy thing even before you get into the vivid gore and violence. This social satire is really just getting started, and if their past work is any indication, Shainline and Kane will make it worth the trip.” —Uproxx
“A book that has been purposefully designed to crawl under the skin of anyone who reads it.” —The Comics Journal.
