“As varied as the land they inhabit, is the mind of the artists contained in ‘White Cloud Worlds’. They'll transport you to the Uchronisms of a WWI landscape traversed by giant robots, the painful, delicate love story of a Centaur and its lady and the heroics of Barbarians and female warriors among many others - these are images to get lost in.” - Guillermo Del Toro, vol 1
