“[A] double-sided flip book that features, on one side, The Resonator, an engaging and imaginative, potential stand-alone science fiction graphic novel set in a dystopic future, and on the other, The Making of a Graphic Novel, a thoughtful compilation outlining the various steps Rollins went through to create The Resonator.” —Publishers Weekly
“Whether you’re looking for a good graphic novel or a good book on the techniques of creating a graphic novel, readers can’t go wrong with Rollins’ book. With a great tale and an easy-to-follow, jargon-free discussion on creating art, he makes great strides in helping the reader understand the process and the mindset of the author.” —Curled Up with a Good Book
