Reviews

"An atmospheric and beautifully executed slice of family vacation life."
--Booklist

". . . this is a beautiful rumination on the cross-section between tradition and moving on, about the escapable forces that peck away at the bubbles we build around ourselves, and about the hidden parts of the world that make it so rich."
--Comics Beat

"There's a filmic quality to McNaught's shots, a pacing and spacing reminiscent of Terrence Malick's films . . . We can recognize in the narrative the non-narrative of our own lives, the little scraps and sequences and moods and motifs that we convert into experience, into memory, into our own sense of self. This strange recognition has a subtle but affecting power. It makes revisiting McNaught's work such a pleasure---and it makes me anticipate future volumes from the artist. Highly recommended."
--The Comics Journal

"You can pretty much feel yourself at the shore, and then when it ends you kinda come back out. It's almost like you go into a hypnotic trance and are there viscerally, and then you're back out [...] It's the kind of unique book that Nobrow's bringing to the table that you just don't find anywhere else these days."
--Jason Wood, 11 O'Clock Comics podcast
