Mark Siegel, Sailor Twain

"This extraordinary work of fiction pushes the graphic novel well beyond its previous limits.  The narrative takes us on many journeys through space and time, but is more than a mere tale.  It's about past and present, the absolute importance of myth, of language, of stories themselves.  In superb words and drawings, it also explores obsession and love in a way that is original to the genre, and to literature itself.  In the best sense, the completed work succeeds in a very difficult task: making the reader more human.  Bravo!"
Pete Hamill, author of Tabloid City

"A romance in the truest sense of the word, Sailor Twain is a marvel of graphical beauty and complex, intelligent storytelling.  Siegel creates a misty, magical Hudson river that is somehow realer and truer and mroe seductive and many fathoms deeper than the real thing."
Lev Grossman, author of The Magician King
