A great little review in Adelaide's Sunday Mail newspaper (21-11-10) by Vicki Edwards:

Four years in the making, this visually delicious graphic novel is a sci-fi action adventure set in Adelaide.
But don't expect to recognise familiar landmarks.
Local author and artist Follett has chosen to base his story in a greenhouse.
When scientific genius Uncle Silas disappears in it, his niece and nephew are summoned by his organic computer to find him.
Highly imaginative, it's a great read and the detailed illustrations grab your attention.
It's ideal for reluctant readers as it's not too text heavy.


I was interviewed a little while back on The Comic Spot radio show on Melbourne's 3CR community radio station, a fortnightly chat show every Thursday as part of the DIY Arts show, hosted by John Retallick, Bernard Caleo and Jo Waite.
A quick chat about the origins of Uncle Silas and how it came to be, after an interesting interview with Judy Horacek.
I unfortunately neglected to mention Dark Horse's New Recruits Program that the book was entered into, but you can always read more about that on this blog.
Thanks, John, Bernard and Jo for the chance to chat!
I had great fun!
