“What
stands out about Novgorodoff’s book are the artistry of its pages — the
fine-art edge her watercolors give to illustrations that help propel the story
line — and the human themes of loneliness, spiritual meaning and connection to
the landscape of one’s home territory
that are associated more with literature
or high-art cinema than with the comic-book form.” – The Kentucky Courier Journal

A sharp,
often challenging story
. . . . SLOW STORM works so well because of
Novgorodoff’s ability to almost constantly convey motion and movement. She

 I read
several books last weekend, but one that won’t leave my head is Danica
Novgorodoff’s Slow Storm.
This book was such a hit at Comic-Con that

works in a stable. When a storm hits, their lives change. I read the entire
thing while sitting on my back porch on a rainy day, and I can’t imagine a more
perfect setting.” – USA Today’s Pop Candy

“Slow Storm’s poignant themes, accompanied by Novgorodoff’s lush watercolor
washes and masterful linework, tell an emotionally-charged tale of homesickness
and horses, storms and saints.” – Quimby’s

“Just like a Slow Storm, there’s a brooding atmosphere and mounting intensity
throughout Novgorodoff’s subtle, refreshingly different drama, as she shows how
these two people from very different worlds and worldviews, both adrift, with
secrets to hide, neither sure of their place in life, build a bond of
understanding and come to recognise the sensitivity and hope in each other.” –

“I admire the texture and ambition that Novgorodoff brings to this tale of lost
souls. . . . there are numerous moments in Slow St
