PRESS FOR LIVING THE LINE TITLES:
REVIEW: Centralia review at The Low Countries.

REVIEW: Leonard Pierce writing for The Comics Journal reviews Erik Kriek's The Exile. "It’s easy to imagine it on a big screen, so effortless are the mechanics of its plot and story, but it never tries to be anything but a comics tale of the old school, and it is the better for it. Like so many of its characters, it faces a changing future with a steadfast determination not to let the old ways slip away."
