For one of my first graphic novels, this is a great read! A bit strange, but worth it for the wonderful artwork and storyline!! :)

Awesome! Odd but in a good way. Don't judge it by the abstract illustrations at the beginning, the style quickly changes. Make sure to check it out online ( it's a web comic, this is just a compilation ) because there are like 4 more volumes- worth!

Have now read all 3 volumes; hope that there will be more.

High production values, well done, with somewhat quirky/whimsical stories, but the stories are too short and the overall impression is that it is a tad anemic. But also, overall, not a bad read, and it gets better as the plots slowly thicken.

Very good online comic, its a joy to see it in print. Always leaves you wondering. Great visuals and the story stays fresh.
