Praise For…

"Ryan Heshka’s new release from Nobrow Press (as part of their wonderful 17 x 23 series) is going to blow your mind."

"The Mean Girls Club is a subversive look at the clichés of Hollywood’s Golden Age wild on a pink tinted acid trip. While it is a quick and light read, this one-shot will make you a lifetime member of the Mean Girls Club."
—Previews Indie Edge

"The story is fun. It’s a blast to read […] I would 100% recommend this to people to check out."
—Comic Bastards

“It’s honestly batshit crazy in the best way possible” – Women Write About Comics

“Ryan Heshka’s Mean Girls Club is a short, adorably, ridiculously amoral tale […] would make a great gift for the bad-girl lover in your home”. – Okazu

"Ryan Heshka plays on the clichés of 1950s Hollywood noir. He subverts the sadomasochistic high-heeled, overly made up wannabe movie stars sirens of the time (think LA Confidential on acid?) and turns it up to levels of ear-drum busting craziness." –Down the Tubes
