A finalist for the Ledger Award for excellence in Australian comics.
“Chris Gooch twists the knife in the gap between persona and self… Bottled is a slow burn of a comic where the betrayals and the dread cut deep.” — Katie Skelly, author of Nurse Nurse and My Pretty Vampire
“Gooch lingers over camera lenses, the arc of a knife through space, the pause before someone makes a fateful decision, and other liminal moments in a life hurtling towards destruction…. Devastating.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A haunting exploration of fame, friendship, and public image… a glimpse into the darkness that lies within each of us—in some cases, barely below the surface.” — Under the Radar (Best of 2017)
