"Stunningly beautiful, strange (in the best way possible) and refreshingly original. Oh, and that little guy is just adorable." --Mike Mignola (Hellboy)
"Anne Szabla's Bird Boy manages to catch that golden ring of design: something familiar yet somehow brand new. In these days of digital lookalikes, it's always a treat to find someone with a own voice of their own, and the craft and the courage to use it well!" --Iain McCaig "Wow! Anne Szabla's world pulled me right in! I felt like I was on the adventure with Bird Boy! Anne's story telling is wonderfully refreshing! AW YEAH!" --Art Baltazar
