    FISHFLIES #2 eases back on the pacing but delivers a fragile, tender, budding friendship between Franny and her monstrous friend. Lemires ability to communicate deep emotion and meaning with a single facial expression in a single panel is amazing. Read Full Review

    Fishflies delivers a captivating read, presenting a beautiful story with a surprising twist. While the second installment may not quite match the impact of the opener, it certainly drives the story forward. We witness the evolution of the friendship between Franny and David, receiving morsels of information but never quite enough. I believe that when chaos eventually erupts (and it undoubtedly will), we'll be in for an unforgettable experience whether surreal or deeply emotional, it's bound to be a jolt to the system.
