Críticas:

...Vehlmann and Jason cram a surprising amount of plot and character development into this graphic novella, yet the book has a pleasantly unhurried pace and plenty of room for gags. ...the collaboration with Vehlmann was clearly quite fruitful for both artists.--Tom Spurgeon

Like Tony Millionaire's work, this comic shows that the line between cute and demented is perilously thin -- and lots of fun to cross over. Despite the multiple beheadings and (mostly) jokey torturings, this is a fairly gore-free affair, so while some may choose not to foist it on kids, its sense of whimsical brutality is right up their alley.--Ian Chipman

Jason's deadpan, anthropomorphic characters make his books must-reads for me.--Gene Ambaum, The Unshelved Book Club

This is an absolutely hilarious adventure romp ... Jason's hangdog art style perfectly complements the deadpan humour [Vehlmann]'s penned here. A child running rings round all and sundry is a tale that's oft been told, but rarely with the panache and wit displayed you'll find within these pages.--Jonathan Rigby

Isle of 100,000 Graves is an inventive and original tale, filled to the brim with absurd and hilarious dialogue, delivered with impeccable timing by Fabien Vehlmann. The story is brought to life with wonderful artwork by Jason, and eye popping colours by Hubert. I can't recommend this book highly enough, I don't think I've laughed this much at a comic in years!--Edward Kaye

Reseña del editor:

Five years ago, little Gwenny’s father found, a map inside a bottle with instructions on how to reach the mysterious (and titular) Isle of 100,000 Graves and its legendary treasures — and then he vanished. Now Gwenny, having stumbled across another bottle-shipped map, enlists the dubious help of a shipful of pirates and sets out to find the island and her long-lost dad. Little does she realize that the Isle comes by its ominous name honestly, as the location of a secret school for executioners and torturers, where apple-cheeked youngsters are taught the finer points of extracting information from prisoners... and then putting an end to their lives in a wide variety of gruesome ways. And they’ve reached the point in their studies where theory should ideally give way to practice, so an influx of uninvited visitors comes as a blessing to the faculty. This story is a comedy, albeit a dark one.
