Booklist has reviewed Britt Wilson’s whip-smart slice of slapstick, Cat Dad, King of the Goblins.

“Wilson’s purple-heavy palette, loopy cartoon figures, and playful sound effects (“FLA-WALLOP”) are a great complement to the fast-paced story, which should find an eager audience among fans of the TV show Adventure Time.” — Sarah Hunter, Booklist

Rob Kirby
has reviewed Jesse Jacobs’ Safari Honeymoon (think a lysergic Jack London and you have a slight idea of what’s in store).

“Presenting nature as a pitiless arena for survival of the fittest isn’t the most original of scenarios, but Jacobs’ presentation is wonderfully fresh and drolly humorous – a genuinely personal vision … [he] is a cartoonist gifted with tremendous imagination and one-of-a-kind visual acumen.” — Rob Kirby, The Comics Journal

Alex Hoffman of Sequential State has reviewed Britt Wilson’s explosion of colour, adventure and closet dwelling goblins, Cat Dad, King of the Goblins.

Cat Dad, King of the Goblins is a story the kids are going to want to read again and again. With its strong narrative, great characters, beautiful art, and blisteringly fast pacing, its only flaw is that it ends. Recommended.” — Alex Hoffman, Sequential State
