Another rave for Geary’s latest The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans, this time from the influential Booklist:

“Geary’s archly antiquated drawing style is ideally suited for bringing bygone eras to vivid, convincing life. Geary’s exacting, historically accurate approach makes this—as well as his other nonfiction works—a natural for true-crime fans as well as comics lovers.”

About Brooke A. Allen’s A Home for Mr. Easter,  Library Media Connection, respected reviewer for Librarians says:

“Recommended. Brings a fresh look to the genre with dark humor and the realistic dreams of any young person struggling to fit in.”

Bill Sherman on Pop Culture Gadabout, as well as blogcritics, about The Broadcast:

“Imagine the original Night of the Living set in the Depression — and without any fleshing-eating ghouls – and you have a sense of what Eric Hobbs and Noel Tuazon’s The Broadcast (NBM) is about.”

A belated but yet timely review of Miss Don’t Touch Me vol.1 by Andrew Wheeler. Timely because it’s coming back to press next month along with the release of the new vol.2:

“So this is a French book — it has what counts as a happy ending, with the villains routed and their plans foiled, but it also has a deeper sense that some villains are never really routed, only pushed away, so that their next evil acts will be done somewhere else, to someone else. And that may be the best that we can hope for — that we know why our sister died, and did as much damage to the people responsible for that death as we could. It’s a fine, thoughtful, nuanced and unflinchingly clear-eyed book, not least interesting as a story deeply sympathetic to women.”
