What do some of Jim Morin's peers say about him?

  • "We’re lucky to have one of the very best, waiting with pen in hand to carve up the phonies, blowhards, crooks and hypocrites who make headlines. They might not want to end up in a Jim Morin cartoon, but they will." - Carl Hiaasen
  • "Jim Morin has all the attributes of a first-rate cartoonist. He has a clear idea how he feels about issues and he wants you to know about it. He then expresses himself clearly and concisely in a manner that is both exciting and explorative." - Pat Oliphant
  • "Jim Morin is one of the great under-appreciated cartoonists of the last quarter century." - The Comics Reporter
