“Steinke’s full page drawings are engaging from the moment you crack the cover…. The artwork’s crisp edges and deep, saturated black reproduction is gorgeous.” Midnight Fiction

“Neptune is a sweet all-ages book; it may be intended to be friendly for younger readers, but it’s just as entertaining for an older reader too. There’s so much to love, even down to the back cover’s comic strip where the main characters try and explain what the book is about. ” – Read About Comics

“Visually, this is a charming book. . .” – High-Low
