Praise For Tumult

“Fascinatingly straddles the line between classic noir and art house, as Kennedy’s striking art and Dunning’s penchant for bizarre digressions into deeper meaning and themes behind classic 1980s films combine for original and rewarding storytelling.”

— Library Journal

"It's a delight to plunge into the depths of a graphic novel that so thoroughly delights in its own comics-ness. Tumult by collaborators John Harris Dunning and Michael Kennedy is on its surface a noir romp of a story with guns and killers and a leading lady who is several leading ladies—a victim of multiple personality disorder and government experiments who is both antagonist and heroine. But that surface also pulls us down into the deep end of visual surprises infused with a surreal energy unseen except in some of the most obscure corners of Golden Age comics."

— PopMatters

“It looks fantastic, its frames drawn in a combination of hallucinatory colour and noirish inkiness. This singular comic [has a] slippery, shivery power."

— The Observer (Graphic Novel of the Month)
