Family Ties: the word is out!

So it’s been about since the release of Family Ties and the response has been great. Thanks to everyone who’s picked up a copy, especially those who stopped by and saw Noel and I at TCAF last month. Not many people have a book signed by both of us.

For those who couldn’t make it out to TCAF for a chat, here’s an interview Noel and I did with CBR along with the first reviews we’ve seen roll in since the book’s release…

Comic Book Resources interview:
Family Ties Puts Shakespearean Spin On Alaska Crime

Seattlepi.com review:
“A superb graphic novel.” 

NJ.com review:
A cold weather Martin Scorsese film packed into a tiny graphic novel, “Family Ties” is overflowing with tension and pain and ends in tragedy that is almost a relief to the anguish that preceded it.”

 

It’s All Comic To Me blog review:
“Absolutely brilliant… One of the best dramatic graphic novels I’ve read all year.”

Comics Bulletin review:
“A visual feast.”

About the book: 

Hoping to secure a future for his children, an aging Alaskan crime boss looks to retire and divide his empire amongst his three heirs. But when his idealistic son refuses the inheritance, the old man disowns him. This turns out to be a fatal mistake when he sees his cold-blooded daughters use their new-found power and influence against him. Inspired by the classic play KING LEAR, THE GODFATHER meets Shakespearean tragedy in this epic tale of betrayal and loss.
