Surely you heard by now that Google E-Books has launched and quite a few of our titles are available on it from Ted Rall to Rick Geary to Brownsville.

There are still some wrinkles to iron out, such as they have many more titles of ours from our backlist which don’t show up  on an NBM search and many don’t have the full sample views they’re supposed to have. Also they’re putting reviews from Publishers Weekly or Library Journal under “Reed Business” which most people won’t recognize…

Varied response on Miss Don’t Touch Me 2

I said it myself in the release for this book: after reading it, I was about to strangle Blanche for her block-headed naivete, this read can be frustrating.

So some are disappointed, some even hate it and some like the reviewer at Gutter Geek (on The Comics Journal site) explains why this second tome of Blanche’s adventures might be just as good:

“Many of the reviews I have seen of this installment have implied (or shouted) disappointment in the book, complaining of its irresolution, its ambivalence about all of its characters, including its purported heroine (who breaks the reader’s heart by proving not only all-too-human, but even less than human at the crucial moment),   In truth, I found this second volume of Miss Don’t Touch Me more satisfying precisely because it was less generic, less formulaic, less premised on plug-and-play characters.
If the first Miss Don’t Touch Me was clearly meant to be a one-shot, this second volume brings us deep into a world of early 20th-century Paris and into a cast of characters whose messy adventures promise no easy resolutions but many fascinating and troubling adventures in the years to come. If it turns out that we are left here (and I don’t want to give away too much by spelling out in any detail where it is, in fact, that we are left at book’s end) I will surely have reason to revise my impression of the volume. But assuming there are Miss Pas Touche volumes still to come, I am more than ready to accept the uncertainties of this strange and special album.”

Sacco & Vanzetti

Below are penciled pages for a key episode in my next book, “The Lives of Sacco and Vanzetti.” It’s a classic murder case with more legal and political content than I’ve ever taken on. In fact, where one comes down on the pair’s guilt or innocence depends almost entirely upon where one sits on the political spectrum. Nevertheless, there are enough contradictory facts and intriguing questions that it remains a true unsolved mystery.
