"A truly thrilling graphic novel." - Gail Simone
"This is the kind of thematic exploration that is needed in contemporary graphic novels - and I think Jennie Wood and Jeff McComsey are capturing the essence of much-needed change in society with Flutter. And this release could well prove to be the most important comic publication of the decade." - Greg Davies, Geeks of Doom

This is a great story for teens as well as adults. It's all about learning to accept who you are and then loving yourself for who you are. The writing and the art are equally strong and play off each other really well.
There is a nice racial diversity going on as well - something that is still too rare in comics. The pace of the story is great, too. There's a nice mix of action and dialogue. The book isn't just about
getting the girl. There's a lot more going on here.
Don't just take my word for it. The Advocate called Flutter one of the best LGBT graphic novels of the year: Flutter is one of the year's best LGBT graphic novels. It's an engaging and complex queer teen love story and character driven adventure that will set your heart aflutter and leave you waiting impatiently for Flutter, Volume Two.
And here are a few other reviews:
"I think that as the story progresses, Flutter is going to be one of those books that we end up talking about a few years down the road for its bravery."

- Greg Davies, Geeks of Doom
"Jennie Wood writes FLUTTER with the kind of emotional delicacy and introspection that falls well outside conventional super-powered comics. Jeff McComsey's art captures the more conventional look of a drama/romance comic that helps keep the focus on the emotionally pertinent aspects of the script, but still brings the intensity with her attempts at self-harm."
- Andrew Leslie, Page & Panel
"This is rather awesome. It's sweet, tender, thought-provoking, exciting, and carries a strong message about being true to yourself and finding your own place in the world. In addition, it's unpredictable and has some lovely artwork from Jeff McComsey. His fairly muted palette fits the story perfectly and his teens look realistic (especially in the way they dress), while his facial expressions are particularly strong - I love the way he draws Lily's father when he's confused, which seems to be quite often! The artwork and writing meld together in the way they do in the very best graphic novels to give us some superb characterisation here - as well as Lily's father, as mentioned, Lily herself is a wonderful central character, sympathetic even when she's clearly being extremely manipulative, and the other teens she's friendly with are also portrayed well. The action plot, with people chasing Lily and her dad and explosions and guns, is handled skilfully, but it's the gender issues at the centre of everything which make this one really stand out as one of the most unique graphic novels I've read."
- Jim Dean, Bookbag
Rushed because the story, while it was good, felt like it went by too fast. The author seemed more interested in politics than sci-fi, and that only served to detract from it.
Underwhelming because i felt like the author could have expounded more on Lily's character. The cheap way that we were introduced to her fathers former partner and suddenly ''SHE'S A TRAITOR!'' and she is killed off before we have time to even care about her, and the silly ''teen drama'' filler sections served to further detract from what could have been a sci-fi epic (though admittedly , i wanted Lily to be some sort of alien hybrid, and not a lab experiment, lol).
Flutter is not a waste of money, but i don't think it's worth the twenty dollars i paid for it either.
