Reviewer: Gordon Flagg, (Booklist)

"Even as the more ambitious comics artists are breaking down the barriers between high and low culture, Sikoryak mines the long-standing differences between literary classics and lowbrow comics to telling effect." (starred review)

Reviewer: Glen Weldon, (National Public Radio)

"MASTERPIECE COMICS is an impressively diverse collection of Sikoryak's clever, distinctive and ultimately illuminating work; it reads like the assigned textbook for the coolest Great Books survey course of all time."

Reviewer: Richard Pachter, (Miami Herald)

"[Sikoryak's] a terrific artist, and his awesome mimicry and maniacal imagination will startle and delight litt'rateurs and fanboys alike."

"Readers who pick this up for well-deserved laughter will get a bonus with the thoughtful metaphors." (starred review)

"R. Sikoryak's MASTERPIECE COMICS (DQ) essentially repeats one joke across its 64 pages, but at least it's a good joke....Like the best mash-ups, Sikoryak's mini-masterpieces reveal new interpretations of the work the artist is sampling...."
