“Stylish and sweet, Kim Reaper is sure to leave you in giggles!” – Sarah Andersen (Adulthood is a Myth)
“An appealing mixture of 95 percent humor and 5 percent horror perfect for fans of John Allison’s graphic-novel series Giant Days.” – Kirkus
“Graley’s adorably goth comic is full of over-the-top slapstick; cute, goggle-eyed characters; a sweet lesbian romance; and, of course, lots of skeletons and trips to hell. The contrast between the macabre plot and bubbly art, in a rich palette of warm jewel tones with pops of fluorescent hues, will be utterly bewitching for the right reader.” – Booklist
