"Renowned artist Dave McKean turns his considerable creative skills to the life of Surrealist World War I painter Paul Nash in this original graphic novel... A fever-dream exploration of Nash's wartime experiences, the injury that sent him back to London, and his startlingly original works of art that reflect a world maddened by violence and darkness." --Broken Frontier
"A clever, profound and eloquent beast." --Page 45
"Black Dog isn't an easy read, nor is it a comfortable one, but it's most definitely an important and rewarding one. McKean has done a truly impressive job of putting together this incredibly moving piece of work, and while I'm fully aware that the dense, surrealist style isn't necessarily going to be everyone's cup of tea, I can still heartily recommend this graphic novel. 4.5/5" --Big Comic Page
