"Gipi develops a naturalism and human quality often missing from SF survival fantasies. ... the art reveals a credible vast alternative landscape of mud, water, reedy islands, makeshift boats, and strange and hostile patched-together colonies. It’s a strikingly envisioned imaginary world." — Publishers Weekly
"Presenting itself in an anarchic parade of anger, impulse, and violence, Land of the Sons moves with a rare energy. … Gipi draws like a maniac. He composes each figure as an accumulation of circles spiraling endlessly on top of one another until they become recognizable—as a shape, as texture, as light. The whole thing is an illustrative tour de force.” — The A.V. Club
Land of the Sons is Gipi’s most artistically accomplished work to date, juxtaposing the stark savagery of the narrative with the Italian master’s dense and expressive line work. While similar tonally, Sons, unlike Lord of the Flies, lays the groundwork for humanity overcoming sheer brutality and personal desires, while commenting on the fragile state of masculinity and human nature itself.
