Cochlea & Eustachia is marvelous … This book is a delight with its own very specific internal dream logic and its wonderfully moving power.” – Comics Bulletin

Cochlea and Eustachia appear to be twin human girls, but this has yet to be confirmed. Their actions seem to be motivated less by curiosity than boredom and an inclination towards purposeless destruction. Any connate objective remains to be determined. They never stray apart from each other, out of an unspoken proclivity. Perhaps they keep together because they resemble each other; a mixture of vanity and comfort is the foundation of their constant companionship. They seem to consider any creature with dissimilar features as inept or untrustworthy. They are suspected of giving hypnotic suggestions to cats. They do not seem particularly malicious, just meddlesome.

This new graphic novel from the author of the acclaimed
Squirrel Machine is lighter in tone than his previous works, yet its myriad charms remain as sinister as Rickheit fans would expect.

“Compelling, seductive, sublimely quirky, blackly hilarious and nigh-impossible to forget. As long as you’re an adult and braced for the unexpected, expect this to be one of the best books you’ll read this decade – or any other.” –

“The frighteningly hilarious world of Rickheit’s is a deranged cabinet of curiosities... It would all be too oppressive if Rickheit’s sense of humor weren’t so addictive...” –

Comics Bulletin

•Comic book website

“Otherworldly and haunting, with densely beautiful images and a series of events that are inexplicable not because they’re magical or powered by scientific logic but because they simply are inexplicable. This story makes no linear sense and follows its own internal compass. That loose inner logic is a big part of why this is such a hauntingly lovely creation.”

Comics Review

•Comics blog

“Scary, beautiful, disturbing and often utterly inappropriate … Visually reminiscent of the best of Rick Geary, Jason Lutes and Charles Burns whilst being nothing like them at all, Rickheit presents a singularly surreal and mannered design; a highly charged, subtly disturbing delusion that will chill, bewilder and possibly even outrage many readers.”

The AV Club

•Pop-culture website

“With a drawing style that resembles Jason Lutes and Charles Burns, and a storytelling style similar to Jim Woodring and Al Columbia, Rickheit excels in making nightmares lucid.”
