Our customer reviews

First, the description is inaccurate. This is not a graphic novel nor is it heavily illustrated. It contains some badly drawn and kitschy art, at best. Second, the way it is written lacks the quality you might expect from such a highly praised author. There are plenty of typos and weird sentences that betray an uncooked rant written on restaurant tissues. The information could be useful, but I doubt it can really help you in delivering that top-notch script.show more
