Lauren Barnett's comics are like that nonsensical joke you made in your head right before you fell asleep and it was the funniest thing ever but you couldn't remember when you woke up and were sad all day. Then Lauren drew the joke for you and, much to your delight, it was just as funny as you originally thought. --Julia Wertz (The Fart Party, Drinking at the Movies)
Barnett's comics are charming, self-deprecating and crudely enthusiastic. She has a particular talent for depicting both the absurd and quotidian, finding the essence of humor in both. --Robert Clough (The Comics Journal)
Lauren Barnett's vegetables don't mince words. Her birds are jerks. Her crayons yell and her hotdogs run naked. Hers is a quick-witted funny little world that will change the way you think about tiny moments of revelry and reverie. --Amy Jean Porter (Of Lamb)
