When the young people you know are properly ready for its bitter narrative then it would be Chris Mould's eloquent and crafty version that I'd heartily recommend they get hold of as an introduction to Orwell's world. - Just Imagine
A tale of greed and propaganda that has perhaps never been so timely. Even if you are familiar with the story pick this one up for its simply striking illustrations - Armadillo Magazine
Mould's atmospheric and deliciously macabre black-and-white illustrations bring out the humour and darkness of this unforgettable story with energy, thrilling drama, and a deeply evocative resonance - Lancashire Post
Chris Mould's graphic, scratchy style, with graphic novel panes and full spreads feels perfectly pitched for this tale of propaganda and power, as relevant today as it was when originally published in 1945 - WRD Magazine
