Praise

“These works of literature do not reside just on the shelves of academia; they flourish in the eye of our imagination…will leave you awe-struck.”—New York Times Book Review

“It’s easily the most ambitious and successfully realized literary project in recent memory, and certainly the one that’s most relevant for today’s readers”—NPR, Indie Booksellers Pick 2012’s Best

“The Most Beautiful Book of 2013 is The Graphic Canon, Volume 3“—Publishers Weekly, ”Best Summer Books 2013″ 

The Graphic Canon is startlingly brilliant.”—School Library Journal

“This meaty slab is laced with more wit, beauty, social commentary and shock than one might expect. . . .”—Kirkus Reviews

“This is not only a survey of the world’s diverse artistic past, but also a breathtaking glimpse of this young medium’s incredible future…proves most powerful in its tear-inducing panoply of graphic talents and styles working in the comics medium.”—Booklist (starred review)

“The trilogy should occupy a prominent place in all adult graphic novel collections.”—Library Journal

The Graphic Canon is absolutely the most ambitious book I’ve picked up this year.”—Newsday

“Kick’s passionate introductions anchor the collection, appearing before every adaptation and setting writer and artist in context. And they’re central to the anthology’s purpose: to entertain, but also to broaden the mind, to foist James Joyce on people who never got beyond Buck Mulligan, to nudge lovers of literature to pick up a graphic novel or three.”—The Guardian

“Bold, brilliant. . . . By turns playful and beautiful, this visual treatment is more than entertainment; it offers a new perspective for understanding these enduring works.”—Reader’s Digest

“A treasure trove for literary comics fans.”—Wired’s GeekDad blog

“A vibrant, feverish dance through some of the best parts of our artistic history.”—Paste

“Verdict: Russ Kick brings it on home – to the home library – with style.”—The Austin Chronicle
