Reviews

"[A] lush, innovative and important monument to loss." -- Hilary Chute, The New York Times "Best Comics of 2019"

"Santoro's stupendously assured style is made to seem sketchy, preliminary, transient. . . . Santoro's pans around the industrial vistas and timeless rivers are majestic as well as melancholy. . . . There are stories yet to end, and futures of uncertainty ahead. But art like Pittsburgh makes the world worth staying in." --Adam McGovern, HiLobrow

"Examining his mother and father's broken relationship, Santoro (Pompeii) expands their story into a superb combination of family saga, coming-of-age memoir, and tribute to his hometown of Pittsburgh . . . He simultaneously pays tribute and bears witness in artful detail, creating an origin story sure to move many readers to reflect upon their own beginnings." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
