This is easily the most visually gorgeous graphic novel that I have ever encountered. The friendship story is effortless and accessible.

I have so many feelings about this stunning graphic novel, and I just love it so, so much in its entirety. The art is incredibly beautiful and the characters and the main friendship are moving and believable and just ... please do yourselves a favour and read this <33 ;W;
Bought, read, and got signed at TCAF 2019. A really gorgeous book. A fairly straightforward story about some dimension-hopping youths but with some stunning visuals and solid characterization. It turns out I got her Zine last year and it was also a visual spectacle. Mendoza does not disappoint!
SKIP is unlike any graphic novel I've ever read. Visually it is beyond stunning -- every single page is a masterpiece. It feels dreamy and abstract, but still grounded in panels that include dragons and board games. Ultimately what I found challenging was the meshing of both Bloom's story and Gloopy, and I found myself wishing it had one story or another. Still, this is an incredibly beautiful book.
