Product Details

Praise

Exley’s tale is an interesting take on the Yiddish myth. . . . Exley’s orange and blue color palette is an interesting choice, and creates a folksy feel to the overall experience. . . . An interesting, if additional, offering.
School Library Journal

The art lifts this story to a class above many of his contemporaries, told in a scale that predicts the views and feelings of the young boy central character.
—Down The Tubes

Exley possesses an idiosyncratic artistic style that gives Golemchik its all-ages magic. […] his panel layouts are simple and workmanlike, but stuffed with stylistic stuff that belie realism in the best and most fantastic ways. His use a limited color palette of oranges and blues offset with the tiniest touches of white adds to the fantastical nature of the story while reinforcing the charm, charm, charm all the way down.
Comics Bulletin

Exley’s art is lovely. There’s a storybook quality to it, with strong character design and an eye for natural shapes.
—Sequential State

I loved the artwork for Golemchik. I think that the art is frankly wonderfully and successfully tells the story.
—Comic Bastards

Exley’s art has a sort of precise imprecision that gives it a semblance of life, especially when the human characters are offscreen. Page five, for instance, is a lovely, silent page of spiders and butterflies and trash strewn across the forest floor, depicting the golem coming to life against a backdrop of nearly abstract shapes that mythologize the detritus of mediocre human existence. Exley gives pollution a touch of poetry on this page; in doing so he shows the potential to create legends from the prosaic. As you say, it’s charm, charm, charm all the way down.
