Alan Moore called Jetcat “a fluorescent milkshake of a comic book, Jay Stephens’ Jetcat is Saturday morning forever, a timely reminder of what comics are there for, and of how good they can actually be.”
The Comics Journal wrote “If Hanna-Barbera delt with existential angst and deconstructionalism, the end result would probably resemble the Land of Nod, the new comic from Jay Stephens. I sincerely doubt, however, that they would do anywhere near as good a job as he has. Make no mistake, this book is quite an achievement.”
Jay Stephens is a Canadian cartoonist currently living in Guelph, Ontario. He is best known as the creator of Discovery Kids’ animated television series Tutenstein, Cartoon Network’s The Secret Saturdays, and the JetCat animated shorts for Nickelodeon's anthology series, KaBlam!.
