"The Cloven makes me believe in comics, in art on the page, in the beauty of an image, in the intimacy of a story that moves from the mind to the hand and then to the imagination of the reader. Mostly it makes me believe -- truly believe -- in a hero that comics champion better than any other medium: the underdog."--Chelsea Cain, New York Times bestselling author and Eisner Award nominee
"Wildly, dizzyingly imaginative, and grimly allegorical. It fairly 'bleats' with wry humor, and the art is spectacular. I can't wait for the next two installments!"--Erik Larson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Devil in the White City
"Homeless people in Seattle's notorious urban Jungle, secret labs, a gentle scientist who believes lonely genetic mutations need love, gorgeous illustrations, and a new species of gifted goat people in our midst as mythic as the Sasquatch -- The Cloven has it all."--Charles Johnson, National Book Award winning author of Middle Passage
"From the first stark, cut-you-to-the-bone scene, The Cloven is riveting -- a delightful modern-day twist on the Frankenstein story. The writing is stylistically dark; the art is vivid and strikingly beautiful. Stein and Southworth have created a masterful and unique world."--Neal Bascomb, New York Times bestselling author of The Winter Fortress and Faster
