PRAISE FOR THE WRENCHIES:

  • “Incredible. A deeply personal epic…a book that calls for rereadings.” — Craig Thompson
  • “AMAZING. Beautiful drawing and painting, great characters–it’s pretty much everything I could want a graphic novel to be.” –Mike Mignola, author of Hellboy
  • “I’ve been a very enthusiastic admirer of Farel Dalrymple from the first moment I was introduced to his wonderful work.  Now here comes his most epic work with The Wrenchies!  This book is a stunning and original piece of work.  The characters are richly authentic and their world is simultaneously exciting and horrific, filled with hauntingly beautiful detail.  The Wrenchies is a masterpiece that will knock your socks off!” –Michael Allred, Madman
  • “Tremendously masterful, as to be expected of Farel Dalrymple. A work of art with fevered imagination and lush nightmares that should haunt every reader.” — JH Williams III (Sandman, Batwoman, Promethea)
  • “In Farel Dalrymple’s The Wrenchies, the most beautifully strange voice in comics sings its greatest song.” – Nick Bertozzi
  • “The years of love dumped into The Wrenchies is apparent on every page, every panel a work of high art. Lush worlds and fascinating characters drenched in originality and childhood nostalgia. The story is heartfelt, wildly imaginative and engrossing as Farel achieves something all too often lost in comics — pure fun. The Wrenchies is a game changer. I couldn’t love anything more.” –Rick Remender, Black Science
