Reviews

"The mingling of reality and dreamlike fantasy that makes Schiuten and Peeters' series so remarkable. It is this combination of modern issues and startling technology, of present and imagined past, that makes The Invisible Frontier a timeless work of European dieselpunk." -Never Was magazine

"The first thing that readers will note about this highly unusual tale of a cartographer in a strange and futile-seeming society on an apparent track toward doom of some kind, is the magnificence of the artwork." -Foreword Reviews
