TSG8 - The Solar Grid Issue 8

“Gorgeous political science fiction comics for grown-ups.”

Saladin Ahmed, Black Bolt

“Protest on a flooded planet, cyborg kids scavenging a ruined Earth, a billionaire technocrat desperate to alter the world to suit his vision. With vibrant and distinct art for each of these linked stories, The Solar Grid is an exhilarating and important slab of sci-fi comix.”
—Corey J. White, Killing Gravity

The Solar Grid is absolutely brilliant, an all-too-realistic glimpse into what would become of Earth were racist settler-colonial technophile powers allowed to endure.”
—Dominic Boyer, Energopolitics: Wind and Power in the Anthropocene

“Panels jut out and the action frequently crashes the gutters, bumping up against an incorporation of fierce design acumen.”
—Dominic Umile, Hyperallergic

“A detailed and dark world filled with thought provoking echoes of our own, and following the money reveals that freedom is an expensive illusion.”
—Heidi MacDonald, The Beat

“This is a story of revolution, the powerless taking power back from the powerful.”
—Aymann Ismail, Slate

“[Ganzeer is] a chameleon and adapts his visuals to the content.”
—Carlo McCormick, Curator / Art Critic

“I could throw some comparisons out there, calling Ganzeer a punk rock Eddie Campbell or a mad summon brought about by Alan Moore’s political work in the 80s. All that, however, would be selling the artist here short.”
—Patrick Larose, Reviewer
