Rave Reviews

The artwork is exquisitely dark and beautiful. The coding lessons are well thought out and I appreciate all the opportunities to practice while levelling up.

Iain Brodie, Grade 7/8 Educator, Toronto, Canada

A dystopian future is common in graphic novels however, the execution is what makes this interesting and unique from most graphic novels.

Dystopia 2153 allows my struggling readers to shine with coding skills while challenging my high-level students. I cannot recommend it rough!"

Robin Kuhn, K-12 Educator, Iowa, USA

The drawings were really nice and the coding is the most creative thing about it.
