“Salgood Sam is a gifted draftsman. In Dream Life you can see he’s enjoying himself immensely drawing every page of this sprawling story. Beautiful stuff.” – Joe Ollmann
“Those who love and cherish our involuntary interior rambles can enjoy more of a good thing, by diving into Salgood’s universal trance adapter. Those who like to stretch out on the couch and become immersed in a compelling story terrifically told and beautifully drawn can scratch that particular itch as well, via Salgood Sam’s powerful virtuosic graphic novel Dream Life.” - Jim Woodring
“I recently read Salgood Sam’s new graphic novel, Dream Life, and it is sensational. The story is thrilling, heartfelt and heartbreaking. And the way Sam presents his narrative, weaving events, past and present with a large cast of characters is evocative of a dream and a tour de force of comics storytelling.” – Batton Lash
