Praise for Lifeformed: Cleo Makes Contact (MAY170045)

“Anderson's clean drawing style is easy on the eyes, but also depicts the characters' emotions in a varied manner that gives the characters' personalities depth.”—Comic Book Bin

“Buy It! Lifeformed will appeal to readers of any age who enjoy a well-written alien encounter tale."—Rogues Portal

"Cleo is smart, smart-mouthed, and willing to learn how to survive. Her new friend, despite his appearance, is not her father; yet, they form a bond that irrevocably changes our hero-in-the-making. Yes, there are aliens looking to take over the world, but that is only one speck of a star in the night sky compared to the larger, amazingly wonderful universe of a story being told... Lifeformed is an intense, engaging story that readers will want to finish in one sitting."—Fanbase Press

“Lifeformed: Cleo Makes Contact is everything marvelous about the comic book medium. This graphic novel proves that comics are sophisticated, whimsical, and vivacious all in one fell swoop. Not only do we have spectacular character development and art, we have a story here.” –The Daily Fandom
