Book Review and Author Interview
Genesis: a Graphic Novel
In the age of turning classic books into graphic novels, it was only a matter of time until someone looked at the Bible to do the same. That's not a bad thing. The Bible is confusing. Among Christian communities it's prescribed as required reading for children, but who can really keep up?... Of course there are other factors that are debated and controversial that weren't included in this novel (perhaps for good reason)…. Star rating: Five of Five. I hope for more in the future…

Review- Gandhi: my life is my message
Fire Ezine, UK
Gandhi is one of the most significant individuals of the Twentieth Century. He has frequently been misquoted and misunderstood. A shy and unassuming lawyer, Gandhi transformed himself into the leader of India's freedom movement and was struck down at the moment of his greatest triumph. His inspiring story has been told in this new graphic novel, presented in a form that is easy for the young reader to absorb.

Gandhi: My Life is my Message | Repackaging the Mahatma
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is an integral part of the Indian consciousness, if such a thing ever existed. School curriculums have played a part in inculcating this ‘common consciousness’, about the man, who gave this nation independence from colonial rule…

Gandhigiri illustrated: An interesting new graphic novel by Jason Quinn chronicles the life of Mahatma Gandhi
Enough has been written, filmed and spoken about Mahatma Gandhi for people to want a break from the subject. British-born Jason Quinn, creative head of Campfire Graphic Novels though, has attempted to bring to life Gandhi’s journey in an engaging graphic novel, Gandhi – My Life Is My Message. For one man to fight the largest empire in the world by non-violent means is no small feat…

Julius Caesar
Animation Express - 24th June 2013
Most of us would agree that deciding on which genre will really click in the graphic novel medium takes a lot of thought and redefining classic literature into this format can be extremely difficult, especially when you have to keep in mind the taste of today’s readers. But, Campfire Graphic Novels manage to do this again and again, bringing out a whole library of gripping reads with the very latest one being William Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar’, a 112 page graphic novel.

Steve Jobs
DNA India - 7th September 2012
Biographies are usually read as thick novels with intricate details of the life of a personality. This graphic novel is an interesting take on a classic biography. It takes us through the life of Apple genius Steve Jobs in a vibrant and visual manner, which will particularly be a pull for young readers who shudder at the thought of a 500-page read.

Anthill Online - 3rd September 2012
To capture the life and personality of a man like Jobs in graphical form, and in less than 100 pages, is a daunting task. Quinn and Tayal, whose previous works include The Jungle Book and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves: Reloaded, have done a commendable job.

Kirkus Reviews - 22nd July 2012
An unsparing yet also very human graphic depiction of Steve Jobs’ life. It is no secret that Jobs was a hard case, but Quinn’s work displays him in all his tempestuousness: as extreme and antagonistic as he was meticulous and inspired. Tayal’s smartly paced, round-edged, clean panels convey the tension and urgency Jobs brought to his projects, his brash and abrasive exterior balanced by thought bubbles that reveal even rawer emotions and a drive that feels combustible.
