Publishers Weekly

“Watson creates a sweetly spooky underworld setting for a story that’s part coming-of-age romance, part comedy of manners. With an amusing (and occasionally decomposing) cast of floating skulls, eyeballs-on-skeleton-legs, and more, it’s a comic that will charm younger readers and adults alike.”


“Princess Decomposia is a delightful story for kids and adults, and Watson’s deceptively casual inked panels are one reason why. His character design is elegantly simple, so these cartoony inhuman figures are able to feel and display a thrillingly human range of emotions.”

Bleeding Cool

“Watson’s illustrations are raw and inviting, definitely making it an all-ages friendly style. The characters he creates are wonderfully charming, from the most mangled of zombies to the most dapper of werewolves.”

Bumble & Fairy Tales

“A much loved graphic novel that I will thoroughly enjoy over and over again!”

Barnes & Noble

“Like Watson’s other work, expect surprising depth from the relationships between the king, the princess, and the vampire.”


“Watson’s creativity shines, with the story and the illustrations marrying together nicely.”

Cecelia & Bedelia

“all-around adorable and very, very sweet.”

Page 45

“…neither underestimates nor talks down to its audience with linguistically or visually infantile clichés.”

Graphic Novel Resources

“Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula is a delightful and fun graphic novel for all ages.”

Graphic Novel Reporter

“a winning story of love, death and desserts.”

What’cha Reading?

I love this sweet story. Some may call it quirky, but for kids like me, who grew up with The Addams Family and The Munsters, this hit the spot. It’s a great story of friendship and family, with fun black and white art that will appeal to tween readers and older.

Cherry Blossoms & Maple Syrup

“This romance is really sweet and charming. The characters in this story are so much fun and really crazy, yet I couldn’t stop reading. There’s excellent humour and the book just oozes with charm.”

Armchair Librarian

“PRINCESS DECOMPOSIA AND COUNT SPATULA was really cute. It’s one of those graphic-novels that you can bolt down in a single sitting (although I don’t recommend reading it on an empty stomach. Mine is growling from all those fictitious desserts).  And that ending was perfect. I grinned all huge when I came to the last page.”

Bungalow Bytes

“The book is perfect for all ages.”

“…Watson takes care to use very few lines to communicate emotion and humor. This is a great story for emergent readers, readers are are just beginning to read graphic novels, and romantics alike.”
“I enjoyed this read.  It was fun, silly, and cute all at the same time.  I’d like see Princess Decomposia again.”
“…a light-hearted gothic fantasy of an overworked princess of an underworld kingdom populated by ghosts, vampires, and werewolves.  Andi Watson’s deceptively simple artwork is well-suited to the tale.
