Solipsistic Pop 4

“The wake up call I needed to remind me of the wealth of top quality British comics available” (9/10)
– Comics Anonymous

“An exceptionally creative set of stories”
– Tim Noakes, Dazed & Confused

“[One of] 2011′s Best Graphic Novels”
– Tom Gatti, The Times

“Flying the flag for print, journeying and the finest in alternative comic talent”
– Emily Gosling, Design Week

“The epitome of “lovingly hand-crafted”, this is the finest British comics anthology I can ever recall with the most luxurious production values which speak of a true love of comics”
– Stephen Holland, Page 45

Solipsistic Pop 3

 “One of the finest examples of just what makes the UK comic scene so strong and vibrant at the moment. Issue 3 is genuinely the best so far, a wonderful celebration, diverse, readable and at times quite brilliant”
– Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet International

“Quite a beautiful book.  As always, the design is clean and attractive.  The book uses a bold red as its single color, with various shades of it uniting each of the stories.  The narrative choices range between fantasy and an evocation of everyday life that is nonetheless somehow remarkable”
– Robert Clough, The Comics Journal 

“80 pages of 2D brilliance”
– Emily Gosling, Design Week

“Individualistic, heartfelt, professionally organised, thinking outside the box and beautifully printed and packaged”
– Stephen Holland, Page 45 

“This is a real gem of a title – 80 pages of independently published, alternative, offest-printed, environmentally-sound, ad-free comics (mid-recession). What more do you need?”
– John Freeman, Down The Tubes

Solipsistic Pop 2

“Solipsistic Pop continues to set the bar high for other British comics anthologies, and it seems as though this community of artists is committed to the anthology’s future success.  It’s the rare anthology where I wanted to see more work from virtually everyone included, and that sort of quality and effort reflects the commitment it took to make this such an engaging read”
– Rob Clough, The Comics Journal

“This is a carefully considered, lovingly crafted and utterly covetable compendium, a confirmation of the pleasure of comics in printed inks on quality paper stock […] Don’t have any second thoughts about purchasing this”
– Paul Gravett

“I loved SP2, it’s brilliant. It’s so beautifully put together and it makes me proud to think all of those artists come from the UK right now!”
– Josie Long

“An incredible collection of comic art from some excellent artists […] absolutely head and shoulders above so much of what’s available”
– Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet International

“Everything about SP2 improves upon the original volume in some way or another. The design is tighter, the content is higher in terms of overall quality, and everything from the cover to the credits page is better, brighter and bolder. Recommended highly, it’s an immensely solid collection that offers an essential look into one of the most underrepresented alternative scenes in the English-speaking comic world today”
– Martin Steenton, Avoid The Future

“A good collection of people who seem on the verge of really hitting their stride with comics, kinda like the early Kramers Ergot books”
– Jeffrey Brown

“Like good pop music, all of the comics in the anthology are short – some sweet, some bittersweet but all with great force […] In an age of free-digital, it’s of importance that a paid-analog thing impresses itself on your hands. Solipsistic Pop gets this right. Very right”
– Ben Gwalchmai

“A British version of David Eggers’ McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern to showcase our best comic artists”
– The Independent

“I’m a lover of anthologies, and will be the first to admit, most of ‘em are more miss than hit. This puppy is almost all hit”
– Top Shelf

Solipsistic Pop 1

“One of the highlights of Sunday’s Comica Comiket”
– The Guardian

“[Solipsistic Pop is] part of a wider continuum of comics that takes as its inspiration the entire spectrum of where comics are at this point in time […] a creation of an alliance of mutual inspiration and an art object to act as a beacon to other like-minded artists”
– Robert Clough, The Comics Journal

“Excellent stuff and beautifully made”
– Robin Ince

“It’s sumptuous, beautiful, stirring, optimistic stuff, an anthology to move the British self-published/small press scene into the next decade”
– Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet International

“The quality of the writing and the artistic talent here is truly amazing”
– Web Comic Geek

“Look forward to more of this”
– Jeffrey Brown

“Just the blatant love of printing and sequential art that exudes from the entire volume makes it an endeavor well worth supporting”
– J M Shriveley

“Another fantastic anthology, with an aesthetic leaning towards the McSweeney’s side of the field of intellectual humour”
– Stephen Holland, Page 45

“It’s all painfully impressive… a triumph and a call to arms that is worthy of support. It bears the gift of comics: the joy of words and artwork collided together to make wonders, dreams and nightmares”
– Mike Leader
