NBM Review Round-Up!

“An intriguing – and provocative – collection of Liberatore’s work.”
“While the book is filled with his art and contains no narration or anything to place the work in a broader context, this isn’t just pin up art. Without narration, the diffuse themes that run through the book create a mélange of differing outlooks from threatening to soft and submissive. Sections of the work are broken down by themes such as Desire, Flesh, Intimacies, Chiaroscuro, and others.”
You will find it hard to look away.
“Mack’s history is a vital and entertaining one. It captures Americans as radicals and wild cards and assures that rebellion is in our blood, even if it must be against each other.”
“Abelard is a magnificently well-told story… It’s truly a fantastic graphic novel that’s perfect for people who aren’t normally comic book fans.”
“…Starts out feeling like a sweet, whimsical pastoral children’s graphic novel and slowly morphs into a wonderfully moving adult story that kind of sneaks up on you with its craft, intelligence and interesting themes.”
“A rich take on Oscar Wilde’s fairy tale…a wonderful book.”
“Most certainly the greatest graphic novel I’ve ever read…I don’t want to live in a world that doesn’t understand, or appreciate, the genius that this book is.”
“Like the best ghost stories it depends on a lot of foreshadowing to pump up the monster, and then the monster delivers…It hearkens back to when campers gathered around fires to scare each other. This is a book you will want to read to a kid just to see him jump.”
