  • "[It is] truly stunning… Scenes in the first canto which recount Satan’s fall without putting a single word on the page are achingly beautiful… As well as being a brilliant introduction to a classic text it can also be a deft reminder of Milton’s original majesty and a perfect accompaniment to its counterpart."

    Fran Slater, Bookmunch
  • "[Auladell] adds vigour to a tale that can feel remote, and underlines the rich strangeness of a myth that is grand, cruel and beset by contradiction."

    James Smart, Guardian
  • "Auladell combats this natural tendency of the eye by preserving Milton’s poetic language. I often found myself reading and re-reading the same sentence three to four times in order to fully extract meaning out of every word. This slowing down allowed me to take in the artwork in a way no other comic book has ever accomplished."

  • "This is a thoughtful and brilliantly strange way to rethink a classic."

    Tim Martin, Sunday Telegraph
  • "Pablo Auladell’s art is a stunning piece of work which captures and reinterprets Milton’s original…. Deeply thoughtful, eerily beautiful and quite astonishingly atmospheric."
