As THE BIG KAHN starts shipping to major bookstores and via Amazon, we picked up a great review from the Onion A.V. Club on Friday, garnering an A minus!
“Kleid’s story is intimate and mature about relationships, both interpersonal and between people and their beliefs, and he resists any urge to underline or spell out what’s going on in his characters’ lives; Cinquegrani’s facial expressions and the characters’ actions do all the talking. This is a beautifully meditative story, and readers don’t have to be Jewish (or pretend to be Jewish) to get absorbed…”
The good people at Comic Bulletin’s Line of Fire Reviews also had this to say:
“This story moves in unexpected directions in a quiet and real-feeling way. This is not a sensationalistic story that might appear on a cable network; instead, Kleid allows the characters sufficient time and space to move in their own interesting directions. The art by Nicolas Cinquegrani is appropriately quiet and thoughtful. He seems at home with this story–never striving to make events seem larger than they are. This is a quiet family drama, and Cinquegrani works hard to keep things quiet.”
Good stuff! Keep yer eyes to this space for an October signing if you live in the Bergen County, NJ area… also some good news for you Miami residents come November.
