The schoolhouse is filling with drowning children. Bizarre and garish colors dominate this surreal high school story. Breutzman's rubbery realism reminds one of characters from Daniel Clowes’ Eightball, while the narrative contains elements of overwhelming dread not unlike a Todd Solondz film, and the vivid colors evoke the work of a Lauren Weinstein comic. Yearbooks was given an honorable mention in the Neil Gaiman edited Best American Comics 2010.

Yearbooks made several 'Best of Lists': The Comics Journal's Top 50 Comics of 2009 at #24, File Under Other's Best of 2009, Cartoonist Noah Van Sciver described it as one of his favorite comics of 2010 on Inkstuds

Chilling... [Yearbooks] raises an interesting issue vis-a-vis the relationship between an artist and their responsibilities as a moral agent in the world. Can art be evil if it's made by predators, or is this entirely in the eye of the beholder? —Rob Clough

The story, from creepy dream sequence to almost apocalyptic ending, perfectly captures the creepiness and angst of high school, and Nicholas' art only adds to the effect. —Size Matters

Breutzman's comic is vivid, unsettling and altogether more believable than you’d perhaps like it to be. —Exquisite Things

Strange, gross, and lovely, Yearbooks is just connected enough to real high school memories to really freak you out...
—Jessica Abel

Nic Breutzman's comics are often beguiling, sometimes disorienting, and always formally inventive. Yearbooks is a quick sucker punch that will leave you feeling uneasy but eager for more.
—Matt Madden
