Possessed by a sense of anarchy that prevents the material from
growing stale or one-note. Bawdy sex jokes commingle with more
heady existential material, and inside-baseball cartoonist humor
alternates with the occasional political gesture.
...Kaz fits right in with the old masters. He brings their artistic sensibilities to our post-modern world. Sure, his 'world' is outrageous, demented, perverted and politically incorrect, but somehow it's also charming, endearing, compelling and 'cute' in its own twisted punk way. As with all great comics, his characters are magically alive on the page. ... The best compliment I can give Kaz's work is that it's %$#&* funny. ... They don't give out Pulitzers for hilarity, but Kaz deserves one. He's a gag genius...--Patrick McDonnell
