Praise for Table for One

Table for One was my first graphic novel, which led to my being nominated for a Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award & an Eisner Award for Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition. Here's what others had to say about it, most notably for me personally, Alex Toth, who I hold to be the single greatest illustrator to ever draw comic books.


“A mighty talented pro. Write/draw/stage/tell stories with brilliant savvy to all elements in the mix!..Kudos!”
- Alex Toth

"An auspicious debut...
...We'll be served much more by this fellow and I can't wait for the dessert."
- Denis Kitchen

"A single night in a single setting, that conveys an entire way of life, an entire philosophy, the past, present and future of several characters...
...the dialogue: succinct, idealistic and tough!"
- Joe Zabel

“If Will Eisner were to do a graphic novel about a night in a restaurant, this would be it...”
- Howard Price, The Trades

“In just 88 pages, Bosch Fawstin renewed my faith in comics... wonderfully illustrated and skillfully written comics.”
- Brian Domingos, PopImage

“Solid debut... lots of power struggles in this story...in the end, comes down to who can stand their ground.”
- Rich Watson

“Table for One is a showcase for Bosch Fawstin's timeless, classic art....A truly gorgeous dramatic novel.”
- Matthew Craig, Robot Fist


"Besides Fawstin's mastery of grey tone colouring, there's his innovative page construction. He didn't go over board in this book, but there are hints that comic book layouts and storytelling are some of his strengths."
- Herve St. Louis, Comic Book Bin
