Jurevicius is best known for his beloved and multi-platform character Scary Girl and his incredible toy designs. He has legion of rabid fans that were expanded with the release of Junction last year. People who love Munnys, Adventure Time and the pacing and structure of indie videogames will love Birthmark. Wonderfully strange and caustically coloured, Birthmark is fantastical tale nonpareil.

"Walking a thin line between depressing and uplifting, a line I hadn't really thought about existing before, Nathan Jurevicius' Birthmark brings a familiar tale of vengeance into a completely alien world." - John Seven, The Comics Beat "Both whimsical and grotesque, Nathan Jurevicius' latest graphic novel Birthmark is a take on an age-old story, that of the hero's quest, a wonderful clashing of the cute with that of the strange, and it works well. Very well." - Daniel Miller, Heavy Feather Review Praise for Junction "Junction is an ideal book for young readers attracted to a more bizarre aesthetic, showing children how to break traditional design rules to create art with a distinct perspective. Adults can find value in the intricacy of Jurevicius' craft, and the textured crosshatching, immersive composition, and vibrant, varied color palette bring a captivating splendour to the narrative." - Oliver Sava, A.V. Club "Junction...leaves readers with a newfound appreciation of the combined power of image and imagination. - Christina Quintiliani, Canadian Review of Materials "An enticing slide into the strange, particularly for fans of Shaun Tan's wilder fancies." - Kirkus Reviews "Nathan Jurevicius' work achieves the minor miracle of being aggressively weird, deeply compelling and entirely satisfying...a rare achievement that only a true master of mysterio autentico can accomplish." - Jim Woodring, creator of Frank and Jim
