    Overall, an excellent graphic novel that is a mirror portrait of societys obsession with technology and order. The story by Rapp is bleak, engaging,and commanding. The art by Cavallaro is luminous and vivacious. Altogether, a story that will have readers assessing their own obsession with staying connected. Read Full Review

    I didn't hate Decelerate Blue, but it was very disappointing. The premise offered a lot of potential, but the end product feels rushed and underdeveloped. The art saves it a bit, but there's only so much the art can do in the end. I don't know if I would recommend it as a purchase unless you're curious about the inspiration cocktail I outlined in the beginning. If you're not, then maybe hit the library for this one.
