'Deceptively intelligent and exceptionally moreish.' --Charlie Brooker

'With his beautiful illustrations and incisive words, David Greene is one of the most important cartoonists working today.' --David Squires, Guardian cartoonist

'For years in the pages of Private Eye Scene & Heard has combined to telling effect a journalist's news sense and ear for a quote with an artist's eye for the human condition, once a fortnight, for less than the price of a bog-standard pint in a characterless booze-barn. A collection of same for less than you'd pay to spend an evening swilling cr*p in said dive seems a bargain too good to miss.' --Barney Farmer

'Yeah. What he said.' --Lee Healey. Viz, The Drunken Bakers

'Unusually for modern journalism, Scene & Heard leaves the reader with more questions than fourth-hand conjecture masquerading as insight. As brutally honest as one might hope. Brilliant.' --Rufus Hound

'Fantastic.' --Chris Riddell

'It's the gentle warmth of Greene's approach that gives these stories their unexpected power; the understated humaneness of watching and listening and composing these snapshots of modern public political life. ' --Samira Ahmed, journalist, writer & presenter of BBC Front Row

' A refreshing piece of unbiased reporting in a sea of cynicism.' --Miranda Sawyer, writer & broadcaster

' Scene and Heard does the opposite of that soul-crushing dehuminisation that much of the modern media creates ... Times Like These is a beautiful example of the power of the comics medium to be used in different ways ... Above all Times Like These is very, warmly human, and personal ... It's a fascinating series of snapshots of society, drawn - literally - from all walks of life.' -- Forbidden Planet International

'[Times Like These] is a ride through humanity. Which, yes, is often hideous but the details are fascinating. Greene's pen-line makes sure of that.' --Bleeding Cool
