Praise for Issue 17:
« I’m honestly running out of ways to praise this series, and yet well-crafted issues like this keep demanding that I do so. With this issue, ELEPHANTMEN earns its second BOOK OF THE WEEK honor for 2009 and does so by simply blowing every other issue out of the water. »

« Extraordinary. Starkings makes use of the entire panoply of pulp genres to create exciting and atmospheric stories in which he can explore the various social issues that are at the heart of what the book is about. »
— David E. Ford, Jr. , Comics For Serious Readers
« The art tells a tremendous story. The series rarely churns out a bad issue and this one falls on the side of being great. »

« Another strong issue from a series I continue to enjoy. »
— Darrell Ferguson , Life of Darrell
