There's really no other way to put it... RASL reads like one long, dust-filled, sci-fi,blood-stained, crime noir chase scene.Onion/AV Club... 'dazzling... demonstrates the same knack for arresting character design that made Smith's Bone such a rewarding read... 'Village Voice'... briskly paced hardboiled sci-fi hybrid... an inventive mix... 'Paste Magazine'... audacious... a concentrated thrill.'Portland Mercury'RASL is gorgeous, creepy, grim, and crammed with action, history, sex, booze, science, and psuedo-science... a hell of a ride.'Multiversity Comics'... there is one simple truth in comic life: you must read Jeff Smith's comics. It's just the reality of the situation.'Bill Baker, ForeWord Reviews"Jeff Smith is perhaps the most accomplished cartoonist and storyteller of his generation, no small praise for an artist whose contemporaries include the likes of Alison Bechdel (Fun Home) and Chris Ware(Acme Library)... [RASL] offers universe-spanning adventure even as it explores those tender and terrible territories within the human heart." "
