The strip received attention when it was featured in the Ilta-Sanomat newspaper in January 2007, which caused the self-published album Kiroileva siili to rise as the top-selling comic album of the Academic Bookstore. In February 2007, the publishing company Sammakko published a hardcover collection of Kiroileva siili strips, which rose to the most-sold book in Finland for the entire spring. At the Kemi comics days in 2007, Milla Paloniemi was awarded the Strippi-Lempi award for her comic Kiroileva siili. In 2008, the strip won its first Comics Finlandia prize.
