Reviews

Svetoft's magnificent drawings exert a powerful pull. (...) Beautifully grotesque.-- "The Daily Mirror"
It's like The White Lotus guest-directed in icky-sicky fashion by David Cronenberg and Nick Drnaso.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Flip through a dozen or so pages at a time, and linger on the intricate, strangeness of the art. Or dig your way through the entire thing in one setting, let it fully absorb your senses, and get lost inside its grotesque world.-- "Cinema Sentries"
