By Randall C
Randall C’s Sleepyheads was a multiple award winner in Europe when released back in 2007. It’s a dazzling book which has a lovely, lazy, dreamlike feel which draws you into the majesty of the art. This is a tour-de-force in comics storytelling which produces a book full of philosophy, absurdism, fantasy elements, love and self discovery – plus some of the best drawn whales you’ll ever see.
“Randall C.’s linework is a beauty to behold. [...] this will be one of the must-have books of the year. Highly recommended!”
- Bart Croonenborghs, The Comics Journal
“Randall C. contrasts the supposed fixity of words, the quest for definitions, from the man looking for ‘The East’ to the dog’s paradox, with the fluidity of images, clouds swimming in the sky can be whales in the sea.”
- Paul Gravett
“It’s a gorgeous production, and a marvelous book – …manages to combine both the playful qualities that Blank Slate are not afraid to embrace, and a deeper level of meaning.”
- Rod Mckie
