Praise for Conditions on the Ground

Farel Dalrymple (Pop Gun War, The Wrenchies):

Conditions On The Ground is 350 beautiful pages of existential and meditative comics. It had me smiling all day.

Jonathan Lethem (Motherless Brooklyn, Dissident Gardens):

Hooyman will comb and smooth and style your neurons with his groovy lines of beauty.

Brian Chippendale (Ninja, Maggots, If ‘n’ Oof):

Someone’s got to bring back dispatches from the creatures of the farthest reaches and I’m glad Hooyman is up for the task.
