Looking for an inexpensive live/work space, an anonymous character settles on a supernatural apartment that has a seemingly unlimited number of identical rooms and manifests distracting illusions and other psychological hurdles.

He is the co-founder and editor of Wowee Zonk, a contemporary comic book anthology featuring up-and-coming international artists. He has been previously nominated for Doug Wright and Ignatz awards for his comic book series Black Massand Distance Mover.

Editorial Reviews

L.A. Times Book Prize Finalist Don't Come In Here, is a science-fiction effort more in the vein of Phillip K Dick than the more fantastic influences he's been drawing from of late. This is a story about paranoia, disconnection, isolation and technology. - Rob Clough, High-Low"With underlying themes of alienation, isolation and psychological disturbance, adeptly limned in Kyle's unique, almost hieroglyphic style, Don't Come in Here is an eerie, unsettling, and hypnotic experience." - Rob Kirby"Unsettling yet hypnotic Don't Come in Here is, quite simply, an abstract comics masterpiece." - Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier"Koyama Press publishes some of the best indie comics, and Patrick Kyle's latest comic is definitely up there. I laughed so much reading this comic. You've got to check it out." - Emma Lawson, Panels"[ Don't Come in Here is] a dream-like and claustrophobic story that exploits and subverts the possibilities of panel-to-panel storytelling to their fullest to create a dizzying, sometimes oppressive and brilliantly bizarre reading experience." - Andy Oliver, Forbidden Planet International"The straightforward storytelling approach, two borderless panels on each page, juxtaposes with Kyle's inherently bizarre visual style, which renders the simple line drawings of the tenant in his apartment and the surreal events occurring around him equally off-kilter. It amounts to a persuasively peculiar view of a prisoner of domesticity." - Gordon Flagg, Booklist"If you like absorbing creative work without a specific emotional or intellectual goal, if you like letting the work sit for awhile before a comprehension of what you encountered begins to appear, if you like creative work to function in collaboration with you, to fashion something unique and personal between you and the work itself, then Kyle's concoction is possibly for you, and you will be able to encounter it in a way that's enriching." - John Seven, The Comics Beat" Don't Come in Here shows off a kind of Brechtian comics-making. Kyle's pieces draw attention to different human dilemmas while also drawing attention to the comics form itself." - Greg Hunter, The Comics Journal"Kyle is one of those creators who has fully earned the oft-tossed around description of being a genuinely distinctive voice in his field." - Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier"In this first long-form graphic novel, Kyle captures the strange, disorienting, and sometimes hallucinogenic realities of apartment living realities we in Vancouver have come to know and love (or at least tolerate)." - Alice Fleecrackers, SAD Mag"The idiosyncrasies of Kyle's work are explored throughout Don't Come In Here, and readers looking for an abstract comics experience can pick up the graphic novel when it hits stands in the next few weeks." - Oliver Sava, A.V. Club"Using a kaleidoscope of fluoro colours, Patrick's weird characters flourish in their even weirder surroundings." - Rebecca Fulleylove, It's Nice That Praise for Distance MoverSilver Medal in the Long form, Single Image and Comic category in the Society of Illustrators Comic and Cartoon Art Annual Competition" Distance Mover is a terrific book, marking Patrick Kyle as a standout among up-and-coming cartoonists." - Nick Francis Potter, Heavy Feather Review"This is a masterful use of shapes and squiggles to depict the sheer otherness of alien worlds and societies, one that not only alters one's understanding of physics but also of aesthetics." - Rob Clough, The Comics Journal" Distance Mover? remains a hippy punk comics love letter full of lumpy characters and far-out themes of art, and life, and the world." - Bryan Munn, Sequential"
