“This extraordinary work of fiction pushes the graphic novel well beyond its previous limits. The narrative takes us on many journeys through space and time, but is more than a mere tale. It's about past and present, the absolute importance of myth, of language, of stories themselves. In superb words and drawings, it also explores obsession and love in a way that is original to the genre, and to literature itself. In the best sense, the completed work succeeds in a very difficult task: making the reader more human. Bravo!” ―Pete Hamill
“Addictive.” ―Rachel Maddow
“Wow. Fabulous.” ―Robin McKinley
“A gorgeous piece of work about moral conflicts, romantic distress, and fishy secrets.” ―Laura Kipnis
“A romance in the truest sense of the word, Sailor Twain is a marvel of graphical beauty and complex, intelligent storytelling. Siegel creates a misty, magical Hudson river that is somehow realer and truer and mroe seductive and many fathoms deeper than the real thing.” ―Lev Grossman
“I had a most engaging voyage on the doomed Lorelei, and I much enjoyed meeting young Captain Twain -- not to mention the mermaid in the Hudson. This is a gripping novel with compelling characters, enhanged by haunting, erotically charged drawings.” ―John Irving
“Siegel's illustrations underscore the multiple themes of deceit and deception: softly blurred charcoal riverscapes transform the Hudson into a proving ground for dark magic, and the doe-eyed characters are nowhere near as innocent as they look. You're never too old for a well-told fairy tale.” ―BCCB
“Absolutely not to be missed.” ―Booklist, starred reivew

What a waste of money. One of the worst books I have ever read. Very juvenile with the comic book drawings.Published 17 months ago by BJ Swingle

From the outset, this book is gripping. While the illustrations are beautiful, the story is engaging and well-told. The protagonist is a young steamboat captain named Twain. Read morePublished 19 months ago by M. GERARD
So while I keep saying that I appear not to be the person for whom graphic novels are created, as I have hardly ever found one I strongly respond to, I’m also stubborn (or dumb)... Read morePublished 19 months ago by B. Capossere
I truly didn't realize that by "graphic" this book was not a text book, but a "comic" type book. I'm going to try to get credit for it.Published 20 months ago by vjcollins
