"Once every 5 or 10 years, a new comic feature emerges that's truly unique, breaking the mold of the tired, formulaic pack that populates most of the comics page. Mike Du Jour is such a feature. The art alone is a joy to look at, bringing a smile to your face and making you linger on it. That alone makes it special in today's comic field, but coupled with Mike Lester's whimsical, unpredictable wit, MDJ is a daily must-read. Mike Lester is truly a master of comic art." —Wiley Miller, Non Sequitur
