A new original graphic novel from the Eisner-nominated cartoonist of ONE SOUL! This ground-breaking new book looks at the lives and relationships of 24 individuals in a way only the medium of sequential art could. Relationships change, grow, and end but the one thing that always remains is the people inside who define both ourselves and our liaisons.

    Multiversity Comics - Sam LeBas Aug 14, 2014

    A powerful commentary on the constancy of change and the transience of affection, "The People Inside" is beautiful and utterly frightening in its sincerity and its unwillingness to look away, even for a moment. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Keith Callbeck Sep 14, 2014

    The People Inside is an exceptional work and Ray Fawkes is pushing the comics medium toward its artistic potential. This isn't art with words pasted on it, it's the marriage of word and image in a unique form that is only possible with comics. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Denise Blakely Aug 14, 2014

    The journey Fawkes takes the reader on is complicated and simple at the same time, much like relationships are. It left me reflecting on every emotion I've ever encountered in my romantic and sexual past. His ability to hit on the true sentiments that happen between people when they are at their most vulnerable is faithful to the truth. The book is not easy to explain for someone like me who rarely cares to talk about my feelings and all I can do is recommend that you pick it up for yourself. Be prepared to revisit old emotions and be left a bit melancholy after the experience. The People Inside is poetry in panels and definitely worth a read. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Taneisha Jane Oct 27, 2014

    This graphic novels dark aspects remind me of the graphic novel Ghost, published by Dark Horse Comics. In Ghost, a young woman named Elisa searches to find the truth about her death. Her journey takes a few dark turns as the story progresses, which is similar to the darker side of the couple's nature in The People Inside and how it is brought out in their interactions with others as well as within personal relationships. It's similar to the dark times that several couples shared in The People Inside, including an unlikely and unforgivable moments that can't be controlled. Read Full Review
