More About Sam Kieth, Sam Kieth, Alex Pardee & Chris Wisnia
Sam Keith's (1921- March 28, 2003) most notable work was the best-seller ONE MAN'S WILDERNESS: AN ALASKAN ODYSSEY in which he edited the journals and photographs of his friend Richard Proenneke's (May 4, 1916 - April 20, 2003) solo experiences in Alaska. The book was reissued in 1999 and won a National Outdoor Book Award. Text from the book was used in the documentary seen on PBS, ALONE IN THE WILDERNESS www.dickproenneke.com. After the release of the video and its frequent appearance on PBS membership drives, it became a runaway best seller. The close friends passed away within thirty days of each other.

Sam Keith has a great talent for creating work that is cathartic, translating tragedy into art. In general I love work that is surreal and dreamy and I always feel that with Sam Keith I'm guaranteed to see work that is eye catching. However, I'm used to surrealism sometimes falling into pretension simply because the artist wasn't able to or didn't want to present themes that were universal. Sam Keith is a master at understanding failure and triumph and his work,which typically gets very personal, displays this successfully. Ojo is just another good example from an artist who is consistently great at what he does.
A fantastic graphic novel Sep 1, 2006
This comic book is one of the best I have ever read. What I thought was going to be another horror comic ended up being much more. Sam Kieth's artistic style matches perfectly with his storytelling, as he mixes reality with his character's psyche seamlessly so the reader can no longer distinguish between the two. A must have for anyone who enjoyed Kieth's other works like the Maxx or Four Women or anyone with a love for the graphic novel in general.
