Texas Library Association 2020 Texas Maverick Graphic Novel Reading List pick "With a madcap pace, off-kilter jokes, and an LGBTQ cast, this is perfect for teens who love macabre humor and heartfelt friendship." --Booklist (starred review) "The art is imaginative and engaging, with rich, evocative color schemes. [...] A wild ride." --Kirkus Reviews "This quirky, heartwarming adventure by Steele (Pantheon) captures the awkwardness of early adulthood and the idiosyncrasies of power-hungry demons. [...] A Steven Universe-like aesthetic and a full palette of bold, contrasting colors grace a diverse cast of characters." --Publishers Weekly "Complicated emotions, strong friendship, demons, and plenty of LGBTQIA+ representation. All that and bright, bold illustrations AND great writing? Total win. Sweet, funny, and enjoyably, delightfully weird." --School Library Journal's Teen Librarian Toolbox "Joyful and weird, Hamish Steele's DeadEndia is a delight. The boundaries of Steele's colorfully crafted universe are as unlimited as his imagination." --Niki Marion, bookseller, Third Place Books, Seattle, WA
