4.5/5 : “Revolve? 1 is a compact package … packed with 52 pages of stories, sketches and a thoughtful text piece that closes out the issue. I was intrigued from the cover alone, a black and gold image of a cityscape that wraps around to the back cover, where someone is seen drowning in the immensity of it all.”
“Douglas’s drawings of buildings are magnificent things, and thankfully much on display throughout the issue, although not to the detriment of the storytelling. The cartoonist clearly has spent a lot of time in a city environment and has been hugely successful in translating what the weight of all that architecture feels like when pressing down on the people below — heavy, imposing, all-dominating and yet strangely liberating in its majesty. The two-page spread that occupies pages 8-9, of a character entering a diner on the first floor of a large building, is the most impressive drawing in the issue, and one of the most well-realized images I’ve seen in a comic this year.”

Alan David Doane @ comicbookgalaxy.com

“Throughout this issue, you can feel Max Douglas’s joy in experimenting with line, tone and page design, in a way that is simpatico with other big names of the small press like Tomer Hanuka or Farel Dalrymple. This is the kind of comics I unashamedly love, dense work by a creator following his vision and sharing the journey with his readers. The paper stock, cover design and overall production values show Douglas cares deeply about his work and how it is presented, and it’s work worth caring about. Revolve? 1 is one of the best titles to debut this year, and it could very well change how you think about comics.”

John Martz from his blog robotjohnny.com

“All the mini stories are told from the perspective of lonely characters reflecting on their place in the world. … Max is clearly someone who is passionate about what he does, and is one of those people who tries to blur the lines between comics and literature … The artwork is wonderful and has a lively loose feel to it that makes it easy to miss how well planned and creative the layout of the panels are. Revolve? is a refreshing change of pace from the usual batch of men in tights and frogs with boners.”

” … the layouts in Revolve? are consistently thrilling, playing with the frames, the gutter, the entire page. They pull the reader on swoops that S down a page, or simulate the vertigo of a big city by distending the horizon or dangling skyscrapers from above. Here is a pro exalting in his craft.”

Guy Leshinski in a Eye magazine review [a now defunct Toronto free weekly]

Sequential tectonic shift: Revolve? by salgood sam
“Salgood’s drifting vision has an incredible sense of space and freedom. Your eye moves across the page continuously, an angel floating through worlds. Usually the dynamic movement of the images themselves direct your vision, like little signposts that bounce you around the worlds Sam has created. The narratives sometimes unmoor themselves from everyday reality, moving into poetic or existentialist territory, but never loses its grounding in very concrete images. Revolve? plays with how we perceive things, and where we anchor ourselves. This is reflected in the way panels bleed into other panels, if there are panels at all. It suggests that sometimes the dream world or the worlds we create in our narratives appear realer than our actual lives, that the membrane between the world we live and the worlds we see ourselves living in is very thin.”
