The Reviews Are Coming In
And It's 100% Pure Love

Here at the Isotope we know that being chosen as the winner of the annual Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics means much more than just getting a cool trophy and a friendly pat on the back. As always, this award is about exposure... and we're thrilled to see the first batches of reviews for 2006's winner Danica Novgorodoff's beautiful mini "A Late Freeze" are starting to roll in and each is up packed to the rim with love. But don't take our word for it, read the reviews for yourself!

"Novgorodoff combines a marvelous design sensibility with equal portions of absurdity and romance... a really marvelous example of an illustrated narrative" - David Welsh at Precocious Curmudgeon

"Heartbreaking, but in that rare way that actually makes you feel better" - Sean Maher @ Quality Control.

"An odd, almost-wordless love story about a robot and a bear (and a frog) with full-color, expressive art." - Slave Labor Graphics' Jennifer De Guzman @ SLG Blog

"Something that's well worth looking out for. Excellent." - Graeme McMillan @ Savage Critic

"Vast empty spaces with small figures that are deceptively simple, silent sequences filled with emotion, and gorgeous attention to world-building and design are used to great effect without a clear derivation." - Kevin Church at BeaucoupKevin

"Her mini is definitely a beautiful object with exquisite design" - Oni Press' James Lucas Jones @ The Engine
