SubCulture by Kevin Freeman and Stan Yan
• “…a book that’s a must for fans of the strip and of geek culture in general.” ~Jeff Schutze, JefBot 3/2/09
• "The highlight of the book is the art. Stan Yan has a great eye for setting up a panel and laying out a page. Each page has a minimum of four different perspectives, yet is easy to follow. His figures are visually entertaining, and all of his characters are easy to to identify." ~Garbonzo, Stumptown Trade Review 2/1/09
