Paul Gravett

•Comics journalist and curator

“An insinuating, multi-levelled fable for our disconnected age.”

The Comics Journal

•American comics magazine

“Franco-Scottish duo metaphrog use simple designs and storytelling techniques to make the reader think about the role imagination has for the ‘average Joe’ making his way through the daily grind. Metaphrog give their work the feel of a great children’s book. Louis himself is cut from the same cloth as Charlie Brown and Jimmy Corrigan...”

The Guardian

•UK national newspaper

“Maybe it’s the palette that makes the Louis series look as though it’s meant for kids. Louis is an unassuming worker with a head like a potato who lives with his pet bird. But metaphrog, the Glasgow-based duo behind the books, have weighted Louis’s world with a few dystopian twists.”
