A review of the Malinky Robot french collection, CanalBD magazine:
The translation is something along the lines of :
“By launching their new label Bao, Paquet want to create a place for freedom where artists from all backgrounds (geographic and cultural) can meet and work together. To initiate this approcah, they could not find a better fit than sonny liew….mixing all influences with a lot of bravado, his book is a pure pleasure. Relying on art full of nuances and subtlety, these four short stories lay the groundwork to a very engrossing universe, while at the same time daring to develop striking graphical effects. ”
