Multiversity Comics reviews FEAR, MY DEAR

"Both stories have genuine laugh moments, as well as tenderness that may seem surprising. In “Immortal,” when Billy cries, his excuse made me snort laugh out loud, waking up my wife in bed: “My eyes are sensitive to feelings.” His troubled refrain, “Shit. Fuck. Piss. Karate,” might be my new phrase of choice when stubbing my toe. Even the tender moments between characters have some truly funny moments."

"The one stumbling block for me, initially, was the juxtaposition of the intensely personal and the surreal. This work goes further in both directions than I initially expected, and that, at first, caused the book to read differently than I had presumed it would. Struggling through that eventually brought me to appreciate the work even more so, and wound up meaning something quite profound."
