Praise

Hilda is now on Netflix! Season 2 coming soon!

“Luke Pearson is one of the best cartoonists working today. Hilda is utterly brilliant!”
—Raina Telgemeier, creator of Smile

“Plain smart and moving. John Stanley’s Little Lulu meets Miyazaki.”
—Guillermo Del Toro

“Luke Pearson’s Hilda stories are beloved in our house, and they will surely be enjoyed by audiences for many years to come.”
 —Kazu Kibuishi, creator of Amulet

“In Hilda, Luke Pearson has created a truly odd and amazingly beautiful world—Stunningly personal and original. I am in awe of his imagination. He is a real inspiration.”
—Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy

“Pearson’s utter lack of pretension keeps Hilda feeling fresh, while his reading of folktales and Tove Jansson’s Moomin series embeds Hilda in the long history of children’s stories. […] Hilda’s dilemmas, while fantastic, also feel real […] Pearson has found a lovely new way to dramatize childhood demons, while also making you long for your own cruise down the fjords.”
The New Yorker

“Hilda and the Troll tells the story of an artistic Scandinavian girl as she explores the unknown wilderness around her house, encountering a blue fox with antlers, the mysterious ‘wood man,’ and (you guessed it!) a troll. The art is as whimsical as the protagonist, and the bright colors enhance this comic book’s magical-realistic effect.” 
The Horn Book Review

“A master of mood-enhancing colors, Pearson nudges the story from vivid to haunting at a pen-stroke, ending with a book that is vibrant delight with just an edge of spine-tingling danger. A really great story for ages six-and-up, and anyone else who thinks comics are best read with flashlights under the covers.”
Comics Alliance

“Pearson is a rising star.” 
—New Yorker
