"It’s a poet’s job to show us the world the way it really is, (not the world we want to live in, or should live in) in a way we’ve never seen. This is exactly what Nebel does, and it’s remarkable that he uses humor to do so."
"The barbecue in Nebel's poem is always the loneliest place on the planet without the kids and the wife because it reminds us of what we were and what we are at the same time."
—New England Review
"This is a thoroughly American voice descended from the Beats and from punk rock, from science fiction and Marvel Comics, from Godzilla, Blackbeard and King Kong."
