Praise For Suee and the Shadow

"The graphics are simultaneously menacing and exquisitely clean, superbly honed in a shiny palette of jet, ash, and crimson...a dark yet digestible visual delight with an endearing investigative trio."


"Park’s bold, modish figures, largely in black and white with occasional bright pops of color, add to the eerie atmosphere . . . the stylish art is plenty eye-catching, and a subplot focused on Suee’s reluctance to make friends adds a subtle undercurrent of emotional depth."


"Ly’s haunting story gains depth and texture from Park’s minimalist, thick-lined artwork, which sticks to a limited b&w palette occasionally dashed with bright red and muted yellows and blues."


"Park's simple illustrations use a limited palette to convey the story's somber and moody tones. This graphic novel depicts Korean characters without focusing on Korean culture, making it a welcome addition to diverse young adult literature."


“Perfect for middle grade readers – as well as older readers who just love a good read!”


“Some of the best slow-burn all ages graphic novel reading that you’ll discover this year if your down with a spooky vibe. It’s a pulp noir detective for the elementary school set that manages to build up genuine intrigue and mystery for readers aged 8 and up. . . . an all ages graphic novel with a pulp noir twist.”
