And on the topic of Mr. Ollmann, MID-LIFE has been garnering some rave reviews! Let's go:

"Funny, serious, poignant and disgusting, [Mid-Life] is a real treat."–MIAMI HERALD

"Mid-Life is a superb graphic novel, by turns hilarious and appalling."–NATIONAL POST

"Mid-Life is bracingly (and occasionally cringingly) smart and funny about men, women, marriage and singlehood and it's told with humor, specificity and style."–NPR

"Joe Ollmann is funny....This sort of honesty about aging...{is}full of insight and hilarity."–TAMPA TRIBUNE

And the esteemed Jeet Heer, who reviewed it for the National Post expounds on the book for the "now-in-cryogenic-state" but still awesome Comics Comics, drawing apt parallels between Joe's humor and that of Pete Bagge. Now, when something is being compared to the great Mr. Bagge, it's funny.
