"Drew Friedman is a guilty pleasure!" Matt Groening
"Drew Friedman has created the greatest sideshow lineup ever. His astounding portraits of the strange, the unusual, the bizarre, and the unconventionally beautiful truly capture the spirit of these extraordinary characters. This is a must-have book for anyone who is a fan of the joyously twisted world of the sideshow." Todd Robbins, Purveyor of Amazement, coauthor, with Teller, of Play Dead
"Any book that contains sixcount 'em, six!pinheads is my kind of book. Drew Friedman’s trademarked propensity to make 'normal' people look a tad freakish with his forensic attention to every wrinkle, wart, and nose hair is turned on its head in this impressive collection. Here, the 'freaks' look back at us as if to say, 'So who’s normal?' Friedman’s uneasy affection for the 'weirdos' among us comes through in every lovingly drawn portrait." Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead
"It’s true the sideshow is never what it seems, but Drew Friedman draws it like it really feels." James Taylor, creator and publisher of SHOCKED AND AMAZED! magazine, founder of the museum at the Palace of Wonders
