The next big thing in indie comics
“Allen is a pitch-perfect storyteller with total control over the page. To call Allen’s art fluid would be like announcing that water is wet.
Imagine that Jack Kirby created Little Lotta for Harvey Comics in 1953, and she was a friendly, kind-hearted and always ready to use her tremendous strength for what she deemed as good.
Bravo to the folks at SCAD for nurturing this sequential force of nature, and kudos to NBM for recognizing a young talent like Brooke A. Allen and publishing her work. I think she may be the next big thing in indie comics.”
Woah! Tell us something we don’t know.
Andrew Wheeler in his review blog Antick Musings (sorry, too lazy to type out the entire title of this blog):
“A Home for Mr. Easter is somewhat rough in spots, and its plot is mostly of the one-damn-thing-after-another school. But it has an undeniable electricity, from Allen’s energetic and appealing lines to her slangy, funny dialogue to that deeply weird plot that nevertheless comes across as utterly believable. It’s the story of one girl and her rabbit, and the vast hordes that try to stop them. It’s quick and funny and exciting and just plain good comics. I can’t wait to see what she does for Christmas!”
