A co-founder of the 90’s Self-Publishing Movement, and an early adopter of the graphic novel format, Jeff Smith is best known as the writer and artist of BONE, an award winning adventure about three cartoon cousins lost in a world of myth and ancient mysteries. In 2008, Smith was the subject of a documentary called The Cartoonist: Jeff Smith, BONE, and the Changing Face of Comics.
Besides BONE and RASL, his other books include Shazam: The Monster Society of Evil, and Little Mouse Gets Ready!Review:
Junot Díaz, This Is How You Lose Her
RASL is like nothing you’ve ever read--it’s electric, eerie and riveting;and as close as you get to a masterpiece. Smith is simply peerless.”
Booklist STARRED REVIEW
Smith is a unique talent in the world of comics who’s not afraid to take risks and knows how to pull them off...fascinating.”
Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW
Stunning visual narrative that impresses with its originality, sophistication, and complexity.”
John Geddes, USA Today
"Smith is awesome. There’s really no other way to put it...RASL reads like one long, dust-filled, sci-fi,blood-stained, crime noir chase scene.
...”dazzling...demonstrates the same knack for arresting character design that made Smith’s Bone such a rewarding read...”
...briskly paced hardboiled sci-fi hybrid...an inventive mix...”
...audacious...a concentrated thrill.”
RASL is gorgeous, creepy, grim, and crammed with action, history, sex, booze, science, and psuedo-science...a hell of a ride.”
...there is one simple truth in comic life: you must read Jeff Smith’s comics. It’s just the reality of the situation.”
Bill Baker, ForeWord Reviews
"Jeff Smith is perhaps the most accomplished cartoonist and storyteller of his generation, no small praise for an artist whose contemporaries include the likes of Alison Bechdel (Fun Home) and Chris Ware(Acme Library)... [RASL] offers universe-spanning adventure even as it explores those tender and terrible territories within the human heart."
