"Beautiful. Gfrörer has a light touch in finding the yearning and humor amongst life’s hard luck and even harder truths. A genuinely romantic and sensitive book." – Sammy Harkham

"Julia Gfrörer is amongst the most promising artist/authors of her generation. Her work is spare and elegant, yet the hand of the artist is always evident in her line. Her characters inhabit cold or desolate environments, often on the brink of inanition or beyond, yet still yearning to love and be loved. Do not be misled by this artist’s sylphlike appearance and those great carrot-colored ramparts at her ear. Gfrörer is a powerhouse. Learn to spell her name." — Phoebe Gloeckner

"No one is wedding horror’s darkness to an equally black, equally lacerating emotional palette as effectively as Julia Gfrörer…. When coupled with her delicate linework, the fragile physicality of her characters, and her explicit and non-idealized depictions of sex, the effect is gripping and even in our mundane world, ominously familiar." – Sean T. Collins

"Julia Gfrörer’s Black Is the Color… is sublimely weird. Or weirdly sublime — probably both.” – Nick Abadzis
