The book is so rich in strange images that attempting to square them all with specific symbolic meaning seems fraught and silly, and perhaps would lead to misguided conclusions: The talk of a growing pencil, for instance, which comes up a few times, could refer to an erection as an instrument of will and agency, but suggests an argument that true agency for a woman comes not through her sexuality but through acts of writing or drawing. -- The Comics Journal Her storytelling voice seems to link the divine nonsense of authors like Daniel Pinkwater, William Steig, or Edward Gorey with surrealist writers like Leonora Carrington. Her comics are Truly Weird, the highest compliment I can give. -- Artsy With drawings that hover on the border between clutter and mesmerising orchestration, a well-realised visual/verbal language that is theatrical and physical, and layered themes that address the tensions between influence and authenticity, The Academic Hour represents a vision of the comics form that is distinctly Katz's own. -- Calm Undertones Now Transmitting The Academic Hour is one of the most complex, beautiful, and puzzling comics I've read in years. -- Sequential State
