Select praise for PROXIMA CENTAURI:
“Even though he has a shelf of awards by now, Dalrymple still seems to me to be under-read and low-profile in the medium. He’s one of those creators people should be talking about every day.” —Warren Ellis (CEMETERY BEACH, INJECTION, TREES)
“PROXIMA CENTAURI is free-form fun mixed with mind-bending high-adventure and coated in deliberate psychedelics; it embodies everything I love about Dalrymple. One of the best comics I’ve read by one of the best creators of my generation.” —Rick Remender“ (DEADLY CLASS, SEVEN TO ETERNITY)
“PROXIMA CENTAURI’s visuals are some of the best in comics.” —ComicBook.com
“PROXIMA CENTAURI is a fun, sweet read from all angles, blending new and exciting worlds with a strong undercurrent of the familiar.” —Doom Rocket
“Nonlinear yet highly immersive, PROXIMA CENTAURI is a vivid, swirling, unpredictable experience from beginning to end.” —Multiversity Comics
“Every once in a while, you come across a comic book that feels different than anything else on the shelves. It takes a certain type of confidence and talent to step so far outside the box. Farel Dalrymple shows that he is not lacking in either with PROXIMA CENTAURI.” —Rogues Portal.
“An exploration of space and time through the eyes of a troubled young boy, Dalrymple’s script captures the uncertainty of growing up against the backdrop of a psychedelic interdimensional journey.”- Newsarama
