Praise for The Sculptor
“A masterclass in graphic storytelling. If Understanding Comics was the research, The Sculptor is the finished thesis – far more than the sum of its parts, and a wonderful testament to the power of comics.” The Independent
“What a brilliant and gripping book. As absorbing as a Victorian novel.” The Observer (Graphic Novel of the Month)
“Everything in these delicate monochrome panels has been considered; every angle calculated, every expression caught… There’s a master at work here, and you can feel it on every page.” The Telegraph
“The Sculptor is the best graphic novel I’ve read in years. It’s about art and love and why we keep o trying. It will break your heart.” Neil Gaiman
