For the committed outsider, adolescence can be a nightmare of constructing elaborate strategies in order to avoid the narrow paths society has paved for us. Purgatory by Casanova Frankenstein may at first appear to be a classic case of avoidance – but this is not a story about dysfunctional coping techniques. It’s the triumphant tale of an individual who doggedly refuses to be atomized into the mass.

"Purgatory is a sweet book. That it could issue from his ravaged earth reminds one of hope." — The Comics Journal
"The one overriding feeling conveyed throughout Purgatory is that of determination. Determination to persevere, to overcome, and to break free. And that’s exactly what Cassie did. He struggled through the obstacles and shadows that fill the teenage years with an almost unbearable angst and he emerged…as Casanova Nobody Frankenstein!" — Almost Normal Comics
