Reviews

"...the warm color palette designed by Kazimir Lee unifies the collection while helping the heavy subject matter stay measurably more approachable. This anthology disturbs and illuminates in equal measure."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"An eye-opening, damning indictment of one of America's worst trespasses that continues to this day."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"...exposes the surreal inhumanity and documents the humane attempts at justice-seeking for the so-called "detainees" in the "detention facility" known as Guantánamo."-- "Booklist"
"...The prison is often a forgotten topic of recent American history; Guantanamo Voices'illustrated format does the difficult work of making these facts accessible to a broad audience, dispelling falsehoods in the process..."-- "KQED"
"Moving details emerge, as when one detainee narrates his relationship with an iguana, along with profound frustration; in the words of one attorney, "The law is a joke." The island colors and collection of styles make for a surprisingly artful book."-- "The New York Times Book Review"
"The influences of Chris Ware, the Hernandez brothers and Moebius can be seen in Guantánamo Voices, a narrative report on the complex legal maneuvering, bureaucratic banality and patriotic equivocation that helped to justify a wartime prison that still exists today."
