"Seems to burst forth from an innocent, morally chaotic imagination. Thoroughly surprising. When the bizarre conclusion begins to unspool, events blaze across the page in an ecstatic riot of line and color." --Etelka Lehoczky, NPR.org "Satania's great strength is that it provides adventure and visual spectacle on a scale and with an energy that isn't often achieved with such technical prowess in comics." --John Seven, comicsbeat.com "Dizzyingly spectacular. A thought-provoking, eye-catching, and thoroughly enjoyable descent into the bowels of hell." --Briana Shemroske, Booklist "Upends readers' expectations with subversive force. Kerascoet's art transitions from the wide-eyed cartoonishness of young adult graphic novels to a more intricate, gruesomely beautiful style." --Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW Publishers Weekly top ten pick for the Fall! "Another sumptuously illustrated adventure into horror by the creators of Beautiful Darkness." --Publishers Weekly
