"Oh, my love... Do you know how many houses there are in town? In the county? Out of so many houses, there is very little chance the lion will come to ours."
"Emily Carroll is a modern day Edward Gorey in tone and subject matter and is one of the most technically proficient young cartoonists working today."
- Rich Barrett, Mental Floss
"Youth In Decline’s monograph art and comics series Frontier is an exceptional spotlight of idiosyncratic creators. Carroll’s issue is the strongest of the series, detailing the circumstances of a murder and how that tragedy morphs over time, becoming a subject for academic research, a myth that teenage girls tell each other at sleepovers, and the inspiration for two horror films."
- Oliver Sava, The AV Club
"I got Frontier #6 at CAB yesterday and read it right before bed and had a dream about Ann and had to stay awake for HOURS. Something that hasn't happened for many years, so, thank you?"
- Molly Ostertag, A reader of the book
