Reviews

"When people ask me what has happened in my long lifetime I do not refer them to the newspaper files and to the authorities, but to [Sinclair's] novels." -George Bernard Shaw

"Even now, more than a century after its publication, The Jungle remains a gut punch. In this masterful adaptation, Kristina Gehrmann takes an unflinching look at the rot festering at the core of our contemporary world, reminding us that Sinclair's parable is as topical and relevant as it's ever been."-Aubrey Sitterson, writer, The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling and No One Left to Fight

"The original novel by Upton Sinclair remains a powerful rebuke of those in power who would prey upon the weak. Kristina Gehrmann's graphic novel adaptation provides an essential gateway to the revered classic and is a remarkable work in its own right. . . . This is a highly accessible work that retains the power of the original novel while inviting a contemporary eye."-Comics Grinder
