Reviews

"Sorese has the moving ability to explore the sweet aching melancholy of getting over a broken love, in a hypothetical future so well pictured that it feels alive and familiar well after you put the book down."
--Julie Maroh, Blue Is the Warmest Color

Sorese masterfully immerses the reader in the story from the first moment. Incredibly human stories exist in a world full of robots and fantastic beasts. The story is heartbreaking, but heartbreaking in the "how great is humanity" kind of way; the kind of heartbreak that leaves you in love with the world.
--LAMBDA Literary, Finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for Best LGBT Graphic Novel

Sorese's character development and visual choices push this story into new territory. [...] There's a bit of stream of consciousness about Curveball's construction, but that's the best thing; it keeps you reading and moreover, looking, alive with an electricity that is just barely under control.
--Library Journal

[Sorese] renders a universal melancholia with a pinpoint precision and a tangible sincerity. [...] These are infinitely relatable scenes writ large.
--The AV Club
