Reviews
"A perfect miniature of memory and loss, affecting and beautifully told in an outstanding use of the medium. A haunting dream of a book."
--Warren Ellis, New York Times and award-winning author of Transmetropolitan and Gun Machine
"Frogcatchers is a flawless, brutally sharp diamond that captures the fear, frailty, and unending mystery of what it means to be alive. Should be required reading for the human race."
--Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter and the Wayward Pines trilogy
"As the surrealistic/impressionistic nightmare images of Frogcatchers coalesce, a beating and bleeding heart is revealed. The genius of Jeff Lemire is that he dares trust us enough to show us the heart is ours. Frogcatchers is mesmeric and beautiful and it'll mess you up good."
--Paul Tremblay, national bestselling author of The Cabin at the End of the Woods and A Head Full of Ghosts
"A gestural gem...That Lemire's art is intrinsic to and inextricable from the philosophical aspects of Frogcatchers is not only a testament to his prowess as a storyteller, but also a shining example of the power and range of the comics medium itself. Frogcatchers is vital and thoughtful, challenging and beautiful: a brilliant piece from an accomplished cartoonist who is continuing to explore and grow even while at the top of his game."
--Quill & Quire (starred review)

"Eisner Award-winner Lemire hooks the reader with a mystery in this slim, dreamy fable....Lemire's scratchy lines and bursts of color in the "real world" add a visceral quality to this meditation on coping with mortality....carried off with striking visual themes."
--Publishers Weekly
"One of comics' most popular and prolific writers....[presents a] pensive, enigmatic story....Lemire's wispy, casual illustrations add to the dreamlike air of this quietly haunting tale."
--Booklist
"A visually and narratively rich tale . . . it is less that Lemire tells a story and more that he articulates the invisible currents surrounding our lives through story . . . it is so difficult to remain unmoved by such skillful and emotional storytelling as Lemire's." --Irene Velentzas, The Comics Journal
