"..(Mike) reminds me most of the great Walt Kelly, who I consider the very best inker of the very best covers of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories....as well as creator of the classic strip Pogo... and I like to think I know a great cartoonist when I see one."
-- Patrick Block, Donald Duck artist for Disney Comics
"Mike Bocianowski is the new Walt Kelly! And his work on YETS! is all the proof you'll need to agree with me! His storytelling is magical and lighthearted and his animal characters possess an inner glow that can only be found in the craftmanship of a master animator from days past. Whimsical fantasy at its very best! I haven't fallen in love with a new series like this for years!"
