"As long as I am an American citizen and American blood runs in these veins, I shall hold myself at liberty to speak, to write and to publish whatever I please on any subject." — Elijay Lovejoy
The Death of Elijah Lovejoy is a vignette encapsulating the ghastly end to a great Americanʼs life, beautifully illustrated by Ignatz nominated artist, Noah Van Sciver. Number 8 on the The Comic Journal's Top 30 Minicomics of 2011.
"I really enjoyed The Death of Elijah Lovejoy. Van Sciver told the story well and his cartooning is solid." –Chester Brown
"Noah Van Sciver's strongest work to date, especially in terms of his art. The comic was printed by La Mano, Zak Sally's own press. The quality of the paper and hand-made nature of the printing process make this a beautiful little art object. For an artist like Van Sciver, who does a lot of cross-hatching and employs a lot of thick blacks, the ink has an almost visceral quality on the page. I hope that more publishers turn to Sally for printing, given that comics are becoming more and more of a niche item; the tactile nature of the paper & ink provide value added that can't be matched by reading it on a digital device." — Rob Clough, High-Low
"A compelling bit of comicking, with the visuals compelling a sense of danger, urgency and drama." — Xaviar Xerexes, ComixTalk
