Reviews

"Visceral, hilarious, utterly human, and unlike anything you've ever read. An explosive debut."--Bryan Lee O'Malley, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Scott Pilgrim series and Seconds
"Mis(h)adra is singular, vibrant, and raw; Iasmin's depiction of epilepsy lives at an eye-opening intersection of culture and youth."--Yuko Ota & Ananth Hirsh, acclaimed creators of the Johnny Wander series
"A powerful story about not only physical pain but also the pain of self-doubt and hopelessness. Mis(h)adra beautifully illustrates the struggle to stand up to that inner hopelessness, and come out the other end stronger than ever."--Kris Mukai, acclaimed creator of Commuter and Weeping Flower, Grows in Darkness
"Mis(h)adra is like nothing I've read before, both in its subject matter and its innovative visuals....Blends a psychedelic color scheme, arresting images, and a manga style for a searingly intimate work....Ata's is a voice that should be heard."--Mahnaz Dar "Library Journal (Editor's Pick) "
"Ata renders the story in a vibrant manga style...The details of Isaac's illness feel decidedly lived-in...palpably, dramatically realized...compellingly unique...the spotlight shone on an underrepresented demographic is commendable. Big and stylish--of particular interest to those dealing with epilepsy or wanting to know more about the condition."--Kirkus Reviews
"At once emotionally raw and aesthetically elaborate, bursting with style....transporting...beautiful."--KinderComics
