Praise for THE SUPERANNUATED MAN:
“This is an ambitious book, filled with passionate black-and-white world building art and story from Ted McKeever. I fully acknowledge that this comic will not be for everyone, but if you’re a fan of literary oddities, The Superannuated Man is going to make you pause to consider whether this is your new favorite comic.”
“As great as McKeever’s writing here is, it’s his art that really sells the book. Black-and-white, craggy, and unsettling, it doesn’t look like anything else in comics these days. Even the lettering is distinct and fitting to the world McKeever sets up here.” —IGN
“The Superannuated Man is Ted McKeever’s strange, weird, and compelling comic that’s well worth reading. ”
—Rhymes with Geek
“This is something I would recommend to anyone looking for something different. ” —Unleash the Fanboy
