  • “Kake allows Tom to express all his fantasies. Sailors, lifeguards, cowboys, policemen… —all are invariably handsome, brawny, and enthusiastically gay when Kake comes along.”

    — Chicago Reader, Chicago
  • “This new volume beautifully reproduces the most famous and arguably the best cartoon series in the history of gay art.”

    — Boyz, London
  • “If you need proof that today’s revolutions are tomorrow’s institutions, look no further than the Finnish postage stamp recently earned by Touko Laaksonen, aka Tom of Finland… Over several decades, Tom of Finland’s drawings, including his Kerouacan wandering alter ego, Kake, who he rendered in a sketchier style than his Cadmus-like signature tableaux, did more to promote gay male hyper-masculinity than James Dean, Brokeback Mountain, and Bob Paris combined. His cum-spurting leathermen are now coffee-table appropriate.”

    — The Village Voice, New York
