Praise for Stowaway:

“The images, by artist Josh Neufeld, along with the additional layers of sound, animation, dynamic paging, and interactive web-based content, transform Fanuel’s tale from a passive script to the portrait of a real person in a real place. Furthermore, the use of interactive content incorporates the reader’s presence into the story.”
The Rumpus

“… [a] harrowing tale . . . in an awesome, immersive, wonderfully illustrated format.”
Gizmodo

… an engaging meld of investigative journalism and graphic illustration with just enough New Journalism panache to keep a reader interested. . . . [S]hould be a must-read for politicians of every stripe.”
