“A mystical masterpiece! John Bolton’s art is as entrancing as the magical tale it depicts.”
– John K. Kirk, Pop Mythology
“HOPE is a surreal fantasy that utilises the pages of a comic to transport you into a different world where you will be at a constant state of unease and wonder. 4.5/5 stars.”
– Keven Skinner, Fox Force Five
“Beautifully rendered by an absolute master in his field, John Bolton’s art is brilliant. So much detail and expertly applied colouring produce a frameable work of fine art in nearly every panel. Lovern Kindzierski’s prose is equally as exceptional and deep. Not a book you can read in a quick 5-minute break as you will definitely want to sit and absorb the richness of each page.”
– Martin Boruta, First Comics News
“The story by Kindzierski is exciting, action packed and unfolds likes well won action adventure. The art by Bolton feels visceral and can be in any museum. Altogether, a graphic novel which engulfs the reader into this magical world and gives fantasy fiction fans a grand tale.”
