SFcrowsnest says: 'This is a rich and rewarding book, the best graphic novel I've read in a while. I consumed it in one sitting on a sunny Saturday afternoon when I should have been doing something more useful instead. The story takes 192 pages and every one of them is worth it.'

Publishersweekly.com says: 'Rollins' strong worldbuilding lends his narrative a creeping sense of prescience, sending a provocative message about what modern society is capable of bringing about, and at what cost.' Full review: https://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0-7653-9868-0
