Borb reviewed at This is Infamous

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.”

Read the full review here. The book debuts at MoCCA this weekend, yet you can still pre-order a copy on our website.

Publishers Weekly reviews Borb

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.”

Read the review here. Borb will debut at MoCCA in just a few weeks. Pre-order your copy now!
