“Kyle (Roaming Foliage) uses a simple, angular line in the service of this devastating satire of religion, industry, and arbitrary authority.” —Publishers Weekly
“Kyle’s odd pacing and deadpan sense of humour work together to highlight the absurdity of this off-kilter and occasionally achingly familiar world.” — Thomas L. Batten,Library Journal
“It’s in no way an exaggeration, then, to say this is a singular work by a singular talent related by singular means — the very definition, in my book, of what auteur comics are all about, and one of the most interesting and accomplished reads of the year.” — Ryan C.,Ryan C.’s Four Color Apocalypse
“Officialdom’s hyperbolic language doesn’t translate to the masses…That contrast is the book’s heart: the disjunction between “era-defining” moments and individual experience; balanced with the absurdity of imagining individualism in the midst of capitalism.” — Annette Lapointe,New York Journal of Books
