Details

"Inspired... One of the new leaders of the form is Kelly Clancy... Bristles with social importance like Persepolis or Berlin... A+. Automatic contender for best of [the year] -Justin Giampaoli, 13 Minutes

"I cannot heap enough praise on Kelly Clancy’s [work]... Clancy’s memoir confronts the meaninglessness of religiosity for an illiterate and impoverished people living under a totalitarian regime. Her presentation of this topic is fresh and powerful and her frame by frame drawings... are expressive, animated, beautifully rendered, and brilliantly orchestrated in their movement from frame to frame." -Mary Baken, New Pages

“I’ve rarely seen a comic come out of nowhere with this level of attention to detail, this much sheer artistry on every page, that also manages to tell such an important and compelling story... Insightful, political and timely, comics this good don’t come out every day.” -Kevin Bramer, Optical Sloth

“[Clancy] illustrates the characters’ feelings and history through letter forms in a way that is simply stunning. ...Her art creates a sensation more powerful than a statement and a static image could have. Clancy is pushing the comics form in the right direction by creating new and inspired narrative art. She takes every tool at her disposal and consistently renders something potent and lovely.” -Sarah Morean, Daily Crosshatch
