''Tales of the Buddha delivers witty scripts and meticulous artwork that makes it a pleasure to read. Like many of the great comics it's irreverent and non conformist, but most importantly it succeeds at being very funny. Jon Haward goes the extra mile to give value for money in every page he draws. Enlighten yourselves and buy it! ''

Lew Stringer cartoonist comic artist/ comics historian of the blog Blimey another blog about comics

"Tales of the Buddha before he Got Enlightened" is a fun thing to read. Great gags. Great artwork -one of the few things that I can read and get a smile from! It has long deserved a solo volume of its own. "
