" [Gonzalez]... has achieved what should be the goal of any serious cartoonist: a beautiful synthesis of many diverse influences to create a work as thoughtful and unique as the artist themselves." -- Anya Davidson, The Comics Journal "Gonzalez's fully formed aesthetic serves as a lightning rod for this diverse potpourri, catalyzing it into something much more than the sum of its parts." -- Paul Mirek, Broken Frontier "Though its narrative and artwork are bizarre, Test Tube offers a nuanced and important commentary on modern life" -- Ben Boruf, Comic Bastards
