The Boston Globe on Sunday had a great roundup by Carlo Wolff of graphic novels and amongst the books reviewed, David B’s Nocturnal Conspiracies: “Teeming with animals, corrupt politicians, alluring women, his own malleable consciousness and other shape shifts, this scans like a dream.” And Miss Don’t Touch Me: “A more orthodox piquancy infuses Miss […]

Japan’s English language newspaper, The Daily Yomiuri, had some kind words on Metronome: “Offers a surprisingly engaging story that, without the hindrance of language, anyone can understand. Tanaka makes good use of rythmn, themes and cadences to set the scene and mood.”

Comics Waiting Room. com has this to say about Little Nothings 2 What stood out for me here overall, though, was the observational quality of the writing. Trondheim is one of the most accomplished artists in the world, but he has a poetic soul with the pen. When he ruminates on what it feels like […]

Little Nothings 2 reviews

Filed under NBM Blog, Reviews

Newsarama: Trondheim appears determined to guarantee himself a place on everyone’s Best Of lists on an annual basis. Everything about the strips, the humor, the coloring, the observations about our cultural standards, is warm and inviting. Trondheim’s self-effacing wit remains strong. Little Nothings has become the most welcome, positive and anticipated book of the year. […]
