“The tension grows to a peak when a storm knocks out the power right in the middle of the radio broadcast. Paranoia and bedlam follow, but as Sartre said, “hell is other people,” not Martians. The characters are well developed. You get a feeling of their pasts, without the use of too many flashbacks. There […]

As usual, the writing is well-tooled and funny, with just the right touch of absurdity. The guest artists have a deft hand, though they don’t stray far from the usual Dungeon style. A good continuation of a worthwhile series.”  Booklist on the latest Dungeon, Monstres vol.3 And here’s Newsarama on The Broadcast: A taut thriller […]

So I just finished up an interview with John Hogan over at GraphicNovelReporter.com. I’m a pretty big fan of the GNR site so it’s nice to have an interview up on the main page. John’s intro is great, calling THE BROADCAST a “vividly entertaining and harrowing book” and he asked some really great questions. Perhaps […]

Two views on The Broadcast

“Hobbs’ brilliant, character-driven script weaves a tight psychological thriller that at once feels both intimate and epic. Although, on the surface, Tuazon’s raw, cartoony style may seem like a mismatch for Hobbs’ tight, sophisticated script, the contrast in artistic sensibilities only underscores the intense emotions lurking beneath the plot’s surface. Tuazon’s use of ink washes […]

Another scene from THE STORY OF LEE

Here, guys and gals, is more from THE STORY OF LEE. This shows a scene in which Lee engages with some intimate, if silly, girls talk – while a spurned admirer stands outside alone, signing at young girls beauty just out of reach. Poor wee lad. ‘The Story of Lee’ is out in Diamond’s October […]

Good Signings

Some book signings are good because customers are lined up out the door and the store owner sells enough copies to pay the rent for the month. Others are good because interesting people show up and have time to talk. More salon than signing, they’re good reminders of why we do the work. We signed […]

Tony Isabella loooves Geary’s latest The Axe-Man of New Orleans: “He takes his readers back to that time, draws us into the fearful moments of the spree, and leaves us more than a little unsettled afterwards.

Back from Frankfurt with some new exciting news

Got back yesterday. In this direction, the jetlag is a lot better to deal with, you just stay up longer the day you return. Hey, even managed to go see The Social Network with my daughter Sylvia in town on mid-semester break. An ironic movie: an anti-social person made the world’s most popular social network. […]
