Reviews

Murphy's piercing debut grants a sobering reflection on the depth and deadliness of American intolerance.--Publishers Weekly
This crucial, original work relates a local history with candor and insight and is a gem not to be missed. It uses the book's complete form -- its sensitive art, its skilled storytelling, its mistakes and indie structure -- to capture a dark tale of youth via the observations of a wise narrator recalling what happened both as an adult now and, uniquely, as a kid when it went down.--Lambda Literary
Reading occasionally like true crime and raising provocative questions about masculinity, power, and art, this unique graphic novel critically examines queer cinema and pokes holes in the rosy, naive view of the Pacific Northwest as a progressive stronghold.--Booklist (Starred Review)
This stunning and original debut graphic novel weaves Portland, Oregon's not-often-talked-about history of white nationalism, masculinity and hate with reminiscences of 1990s alt-culture, queerness and power.--Ms. Magazine
