"Locke and Blandy’s imaginative and dreamlike illustrations, in dense, matte color and swirling organic shapes and cartoonish figures, bring to life a side of science that is usually overlooked, neatly weaving together philosophy and art and the often overwhelming concepts of space and time."—Booklist
"The simple, bold art style, dazzling color, and varied composition choices in this graphic nonfiction work bring dynamism to a cerebral academic experiment."
"Daniel Locke’s Out of Nothing reminds readers of the important verities of life, providing a long view that shows that despite it all, mankind can still find grace in its own history."
"…thanks to great illustrations and an optimistic narrative things don't get too crazy or complex, with the book never feeling like it is talking-down to readers so much as encouraging us to marvel at how even the seemingly simplest things are more intricate than we'd ever imagine."—The Newest Rant
