    "This was really well done, and way better than I though it'd be, based on the glowing two word review from my 12 year old: "it sucks." Sorry kid, you're way wrong on this one, but hopefully you'll appreciate this when you're older, as this is one of the best graphic novels (not a kiddie picture book) I've ever seen."

    "The Number 73304-23-4153-6-96-8 is a fantastic graphic novel. I read, or should I say watched, this novel last month and it is a work of art! The story delves into the mind of a person whose luck changes with numbers he found in a prison cell he was cleaning up. From there, his luck runs the gamut and he may not recover. "

    "This graphic novel is very captivating. The art is in black and white and it captures the emotions and the feelings of what the author is trying to portray. There are short stories within this novel which may cause confusion to the reader, however, it excels at matching the tone of horror with the art. "

    "While I've never been a fan of the original written Pinocchio or the movie, this book completely blew me out of the water. It's so complex and detailed, and the art is just gorgeous—I couldn't put it down."

    "A brilliant work. I never thought that a book with no words could produce a compelling story. The author not only makes the story compelling but the book is better the 99% of books with words. "
