"Like the best travelogues, An Age of License shows you what it would be like to visit a place while reminding you that you can never have the same experience…This book is more thought-provoking than her other works, demonstrating growth and a challenge to readers to think about these things in their own lives." –Johanna Carlson-Draper, Comics Worth Reading
"Knisley is a pleasurable picture-maker and there are hooks here in that she talks in forthright fashion about an affair she had while over there (a forthcoming book is about her marriage, which has to imminent) and she engages directly with the issue of privilege as it pertains to her ability to take trips like this one." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
208-page full color 8.5" x 11" hardcover • $29.99
"Rosa's comics may be the best comics ever done in the voice of another creator. They're very funny, satisfying yarns, and this presentation — particularly the color — is super-handsome." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
