Review Quotes:
The best of the lot is Rosetta, which is simply stunning. It combines the meticulousness of such handcrafted, small print-run books as Non with the availability of a trade paperback. Ng Suat Tong has sharply edited the selections for a variety of styles, subjects and cultures. Perfect for a newcomer, each contribution has a short accompanying intro to the artist. -- Andrew D. Arnold, Time Magazine

The collection demonstrates the power of the graphic novel to tell stories beyond that of adventure, humor, or superheroes. The combination of words and images is insightful, expressive, passionate, and, at times, dark. -- School Library Journal
