DK review at The Fourth Rail - "Mix equal parts George Lucas, Miyazaki and Sergio Leone and you've got some idea what to expect from Daisy Kutter, the western/sci-fi adventure by Kazu Kibuishi." - Randy Lander

DK review at Sequential Tart - "Daisy Kutter rocks." - Rebecca Salek

DK#4 review at Hero Realm - "This issue wraps up one of the most unique and entertaining comics I’ve ever read." - Sarah Haslett

DK#3-4 review at moviepoopshoot.com - "One of my favorite unheralded gems of the past few months comes to a close with these two issues, and defying what seems to be all-too-normal these days, it delivers an excellent and earned payoff in the end..." - Marc Mason

DK#3 review at thecomicfanatic - "Writer/artist Kazu Kibuishi has created one of the brightest, most lovable characters to hit the scene in years. Kibuishi’s Daisy Kutter is a tough cutie along the lines of a female Clint Eastwood with the luck of Barney Fife! Kibuishi’s art captures this essence perfectly, all the while giving this book a welcoming and comforting feel that can only be described as a breath of fresh air in an often stale industry!"

DK#3 review at comiXtreme... -"... if I had to give one word to describe this book it would be "fun", because really that's what this book is. Yeah, it's beautifully drawn and the writing is top notch, but it also manages to have the fun factor and that's really what sets it apart." - Matt DeWolskin - comiXtreme

DK at comiXtreme - "One thing that struck me about this series was the quality of the story. I have something of a “law” in comics when it comes to stories written and drawn by the same creator. I try to be as forgiving as possible in regards to the story – I find that usually that aspect of the one-man-show comic is usually the weakest. It makes sense to me – the art of drawing is a very different skill than the art of storytelling. And while an illustrator can be very imaginative and come up with a great story concept, sometimes the execution can be lacking, and I try to be forgiving in cases like that. Here, though, I found that wasn’t necessary. Kibuishi has skillfully woven his tale, with all of the imagination I expected from an artist, along with all of the writing sophistication that I didn’t. It was a welcome surprise, and it is the story that, in the end, makes this title a complete package." - Craig Reade - comiXtrem

DK#1 review at CBR - "This is pure storytelling, the ability to pace the images to go with the words." - Augie De Blieck Jr.

DK#1 review at Popthought - "Kibuishi's sharp writing and stylish art makes Daisy Kutter a book that immediately grabs the reader with its excellent pacing and highly entertaining story." - Jeremy Clifft

DK#1 review at NeedCoffee - "In a strange mishmash place that's Old West but with robots--imagine a Brad Bird-directed and animated version of Westworld...Solid composition and "camera angles" make this worth reading through once for the story and once to appreciate everything else that's going on."

DK#1 review at PaperBack Reader - "...along comes Kazu Kibuishi with a book that has enough style and substance to make this reviewer excited about comics all over again. Daisy Kutter: The Last Train #1 is one of those books that comes out of nowhere and surpasses all expectations." - James Powell

A nice place to chill out and talk about all sorts of stuff - including films, comics, food, etc. The people are nice, and the vibe is good. Feel free to come and hang out.



Scott McCloud

Scott has been my guide and mentor in the world of graphic narrative, even before I met him. All webcomics artists should begin their journey at his website, and especially by reading his blog. Not every medium is as lucky as comics to have such a wonderful professor on its side.



A company started by several friends of mine. I worked with them on projects for games, films, commercials, and the web. They're a bunch of cool guys, and they are some of the most professional people I know. If you're looking for some high-end 3D work from some very reliable people, I recommend looking them up!
