Review:

“It’s not often that one can feel a graphic novel resonating with emotion. Nor is it often that this very comic can be a fantastic read from start to finish. Pedro and Me, written by fan favorite Judd Winick, accomplishes both of these lofty tasks.” — http://www.comicsbulletin.com/reviews/96801658723739.htm
