Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Beautifully illustrated children’s fantasy tale I’m not familiar with the original Nemo comic strips but this homage is exquisitely and minutely illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez. Written by Eric Shanower, it is a lot of fun. Nice Escher-inspired chapter in the middle. Thoroughly recommended to lovers of finely-executed work.
