Here's what the press is saying about THE SAGA OF REX:

"...a sensitive and intriguing graphic novel for people who like a little enigma in what they read."
-- Publisher Weekly

"It's epic! It's deep! It's fundamental! And yet, there's something simple, warm and personal about it that goes straight to that little spot in your heart that makes you smile like a child again."
-- Sheena McNeil,Sequential Tart

"The free-floating, heroic whimsy of the story arrives at a sweet ending, but the real experience is in swooping through Gagné’s deliriously gorgeous, silent panels and breathtaking planetary vistas."
-- Booklist

"...an absolute tour de force... The set pieces are muscular in both the visual and storytelling sense. The fluidity, sense of play, and imagination exhibited by Gagne get Flight off to a champagne-cork-popping start.."
