MEDIA REVIEWS
"Locke and Blandy's imaginative and dreamlike illustrations, in dense, matte color and swirling organic shapes and cartoonish figures, bring to life a side of science that is usually overlooked, neatly weaving together philosophy and art and the often overwhelming concepts of space and time."-Booklist

"The simple, bold art style, dazzling color, and varied composition choices in this graphic nonfiction work bring dynamism to a cerebral academic experiment."
-Publishers Weekly

"Daniel Locke's Out of Nothing reminds readers of the important verities of life, providing a long view that shows that despite it all, mankind can still find grace in its own history."
-Comics Bulletin

"...thanks to great illustrations and an optimistic narrative things don't get too crazy or complex, with the book never feeling like it is talking-down to readers so much as encouraging us to marvel at how even the seemingly simplest things are more intricate than we'd ever imagine."-The Newest Rant
