"From Shadow to Light: The Life and Art of Mort Meskin is a swell-looking history of a little-examined and little-known Golden Age artist who is only just now getting his due. Author Steve Brower and Fantagraphics provide the education." – Chris Mautner, Robot 6
"Fantagraphics presents a 220-page, 9.5″ x 12.25″ hardcover career overview by Steven Brower (w’ Peter & Philip Meskin), no doubt with many illustrations included. Introduction by Jerry Robinson." – Joe McCulloch, Comics Comics
"…[A] lavishly illustrated and sampled history… Mort Meskin… was the only Golden Age artist other than Lou Fine to make a specific impression on me before I was a teen…" – Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter
