    Graphic Policy - Joe Bones Feb 9, 2021

    Love is stronger than fear. That's the central theme of Girl Haven and it's a message from which we can all learn. I didn't get this written in time to make the pre-order cut-off, but this is a graphic novel you're going to want to check out when it releases on February 17th. It's a book with something for almost everyone and is especially appropriate (and important) for young readers. This fantasy adventure story is well written if a bit derivative. The graphic novel is drawn in a fun and coherent style, and the characters are representative of people not featured often enough in comic books. Grab yourself a copy and get ready to journey through Koretris. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Duna Haller Feb 13, 2021

    A beautiful graphic story for trans kids to see themselves in and trans adult to deal with some of their memories, and a narrative that connects with fears, hopes and community with art that exudes emotion and invites the reader into the tale. Not a book for people to learn about trans issues, but a book designed for trans (and gender-questioning) people to let a tale into your heart. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Jason Flatt Jan 17, 2021

    Girl Haven is a remarkable story about identity and expression that's greatest fault is simply that it is only a graphic novel and not a full-fledged monthly series. Its world, characters, and themes are excellent and though there are a few shortcomings in some of the aspects of character and art, they are easily forgivable in the face of the touching and challenging journey Ash goes on throughout this story.
