Praise For Showman Killer: Heartless Hero

“A Prophet Of Creativity... One Of The Most Inspiring Artists Of Our Time!” - Kanye West

"A beautifully paced and strikingly visualized opening salvo that makes you eager to get your hands of the continuing story" - Bookgasm

"The painted art by veteran animator and illustrator Fructus depicts expressive and detailed characters, with subtle grays and earth tones punctuated by the occasional splash of violent, angry bright red, and a vibrant visual energy that balances illumination and shade to draw focus across each panel. The soft, organic edges of his characters and technology increase the dreamlike, hallucinatory quality of the script, and a last-act moment of personal evolution for Showman Killer hints at important future developments." - Publisher Weekly 

"Fans of Jodorowsky’s cult films (e.g., El Topo) and other comic work will be thrilled to see a new title from him; enthusiasts of sf and European translations will be delighted by this fantastical story, which isn’t like much else out there." - Library Journal
