Andy Oliverof Broken Frontierreviews Smoo #5. He writes:
Some of the very, very best in autobiographical comics are those that feel they have been written as much for the creator as they have for his or her potential audience. For me, Simon Moreton’s work falls firmly under that classification. Quietly uncompromising, it has a raw and admirable honesty to it that draws the reader in and fully absorbs them in the emotive and very personal slice-of-life episodes he recreates on the comics page.
