Posted on Oct 11, 2017 in Blog

Kawai Shen on their Cute Juice Comics blog has an insightful analysis of GG’s “haunting story about an immigrant family” I’m Not Here.

Broken Pencil Reviews Crawl Space

Posted on Oct 10, 2017 in Blog

Broken Pencil reviews Jesse Jacobs’ “visually arresting” Crawl Space.

By This Shall You Know HimSafari Honeymoon and now Crawl Space are each stories of Edens squandered by human consumption, and the way nature strikes back. They’re paradise-lost narratives for the climate change era, albeit leavened by whimsy and body humour.” — JM Francheteau, Broken Pencil

Sequential State Reviews I’m Not Here

Posted on Oct 10, 2017 in Blog

Sequential State reviews intricately constructed and told I’m Not Here.

“Our protagonist’s indecision, her feeling of being trapped, the dream-logic of her escape; I’m Not Here is a book that represents the current state of family in the 21st century and the power relationships that convolute it.” — Alex Hoffman, Sequential State

The Paris Review Picks Everywhere Disappeared

Posted on Oct 4, 2017 in Blog

The Paris Review selects Patrick Kyle’s Everywhere Disappeared as a staff pick!

“Kyle marries geometric precision with surrealist accumulation (and occasional painterly marks), meaning that those panels are disordered with orderly elements. That appealing chaos creates a unique architecture within and between pages and gives an elasticity to the way the narratives progress.” — Nicole Rudick, The Paris Review
