Visually stunning. This story has no words, only pictures, and it packs a punch. Some of the panels would be beautiful as works of art on their own.

sophisticated in its simplicityNov 2006Drooker's fine work with the scratch-board is highlighted by blue night-time shades, except for the rare epiphanic brilliance shining through in a green, red or yellow. Lovely to read, review and appreciate.

I first read (perhaps looked is better)through this volume in a flash. The story is so coherently told (envisioned!). But that was with a word readers eye. I then went back and really allowed myself to enter Drooker's creation with my eyes and then my heart. It is a masterly piece of work that invites the reader to return again and again. Some images will stay with me for ever. Although the wordless novel goes back to the twenties with the work of Frans Masereel in particular I think Drooker has now reinvented the artform for a new generation. He has tapped into a primal stream of simple but profound humanitarian storytelling.
