Shea Hennum reviews Jason Little’s new book, Borb, at This is Infamous. “Borb walks the tightrope between levity and despair with expert precision,” Hennum writes. “It’s deeply impressive how funny some of the moments in the book are compared to the abyssal bleakness of others.”

The first review of Jason Little’s Borb is out, and it’s a nice one. Publishers Weekly says “Little’s elegant linework, minimal dialogue, and unwavering focus on the man’s day-to-day struggles are powerful, giving us a gruesome, slapstick view of society’s underbelly.”
