About the Author
In the new graphic novel Cyclopedia Exotica, immigrants with one eye coexist uneasily with their two-eyed neighbors.... Cyclops deal with being perceived as overly submissive, the lack of cyclops representation in Hollywood movies, and worries about whether mixed children will have one eye or two... It's resonating with [Aminder Dhaliwal's] thousands of Instagram followers.--Robert Ito, The New York Times
"Fans of Jillian Tamaki's SuperMutant Magic Academy and Kate Beaton's work will find much common ground here."--Carmen Maria Machado, author of In The Dream House
--Hellen Jo, Cartoonist, Illustrator, and Translator of Uncomfortably Happily
Playful and provocative. A delightful delve into the lives of the not-so-monstrous!
--Felicia Day, Actor, Writer, Producer
As the immigrant cyclops navigate their world, Dhaliwal uses humour and spot-on cultural references to address themes of race, xenophobia, beauty ideals, and our desire to belong.
--Quill & Quire, 2021 Spring Preview Cyclopedia Exotica is dedicated "to those who don't feel seen," and the nature of the cyclops inspires irresistible metaphors around eyes, being seen, and who owns society's gaze. --Publishers Weekly
