Thomas Woodruff's Francis Rothbart! is a baroque masterpiece in comic novel form and a voyage into a deep, rich, and patient imagination. Bernini would have been stunned.--Gary Panter
A lot of times you'll be reading a book and you'll wonder, 'Where are the magpies bearing oven mitts? Where are the villagers with wasp nests on their heads?' Finally, this book delivers!--Jack Handey, author of The Stench of Honolulu
Thomas Woodruff has created his own world. A world never seen before. An allegory of all our dreams. AMAZING.--Robert Wilson, theater director and visual artist (Einstein on the Beach, The Black Rider)
Woodruff spent the better part of a decade laboring over [this graphic novel], a 300-page hand-drawn masterpiece of the form.-- "The New York Times"
