    Please come back sooner next time, Autumnlands. There aren't nearly enough books doing fantasy very well, and we need you. Read Full Review

    A seeming diversion sets up something bigger that you would be foolish to miss out on. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Grant Raycroft Feb 10, 2016

    The Autumnlands #9 might be the first skippable issue of the series. It's good but aside from continued foreshadowing, there's little action and spectacle this time around. After the right-out-of-nowhere weirdness of last issue, this one takes a break and lets its characters breathe. Whether that's to the benefit of an already very decompressed and slow-paced story will be determined later, but it's a harmless endeavor with some fun exploration of the series' world and its central characters. It's a sign that a series can remain this consistently good even when very little is happening. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Feb 10, 2016

    So while our main plot hasn't moved much, one of our main characters is seeing some development. Plus, there's a whole village of adorable, talking sheep who like beer. That's worth some time, I should think! Oh, and the artwork is really good. Cant forget to mention that. Read Full Review

    It's a gorgeous read, and one that feels completely assured from the first page to the last. Read Full Review

    First off Dewey art is fabulous! He has a way of making all the animals look so real. I am new to Busiek writing but so far I have thoroughly enjoyed his writing. Only complaint I ever have of Autumnlands is the page count. Read Full Review
