Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“An early candidate for the various best-of lists for 2016, this superlative achievement… tells the story not only of Singaporean artist and comics creator Charlie Chan Hock Chye, but of Singapore itself… a tumultuous sweep that is mirrored in the history of cartooning. Make no mistake: this multilayered book is a masterpiece.”
Library Journal (starred review)
“The combination of a powerful message, artistic virtuosity, and a fascinating framing device make for an un-put-downable read… This relentlessly engaging work stretches the boundaries of the graphic novel medium and is highly recommended for fans of political satire, Chris Ware, or Art Spiegelman.”
“A fascinating look at a clever, uncompromising artist married to the times in which he lived.”
