Barry says “Beautifully illustrated and strangely poignant, but largely just … odd. Odd in a good way, though. Seriously, I mean ‘odd’ in the most complementary way possible.”

  1. Opey the Warhead is very funny and very poignant all at the same time…Much like the early Simpsons, Zac Crockett is not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve as he explores a wildly wonderfully wistful world!
