Editorial Reviews

One of the central themes of the book is that compassion and caring, even in a brutal and uncaring world, can be enormous strengths." - Rob Clough, High-Low"Walking a thin line between depressing and uplifting, a line I hadn't really thought about existing before, Nathan Jurevicius' Birthmark brings a familiar tale of vengeance into a completely alien world." - John Seven, The Comics Beat"Both whimsical and grotesque, Nathan Jurevicius' latest graphic novel Birthmark is a take on an age-old story, that of the hero's quest, a wonderful clashing of the cute with that of the strange, and it works well. Very well." - Daniel Miller, Heavy Feather ReviewPraise for Junction" Junction is an ideal book for young readers attracted to a more bizarre aesthetic, showing children how to break traditional design rules to create art with a distinct perspective. Adults can find value in the intricacy of Jurevicius' craft, and the textured crosshatching, immersive composition, and vibrant, varied color palette bring a captivating splendour to the narrative." - Oliver Sava, A.V. Club" Junction? leaves readers with a newfound appreciation of the combined power of image and imagination. - Christina Quintiliani, Canadian Review of Materials"An enticing slide into the strange, particularly for fans of Shaun Tan's wilder fancies." - Kirkus Reviews"Nathan Jurevicius' work achieves the minor miracle of being aggressively weird, deeply compelling and entirely satisfying? a rare achievement that only a true master of mysterio autentico can accomplish." - Jim Woodring, creator of Frank and Jim"
