As THE BIG KAHN starts shipping to major bookstores and via Amazon, we picked up a great review from the Onion A.V. Club on Friday, garnering an A minus! “Kleid’s story is intimate and mature about relationships, both interpersonal and between people and their beliefs, and he resists any urge to underline or spell out […]

Mutiny on the Bounty

Imagine that, I found another zombie lurking in my sketchbooks. Of course this doesn’t even remotely resemble THINGS UNDONE. Word on the street is it’ll be in comic shops in a few weeks. With the typhoons in Taiwan and the hurricanes off every coast I’m sure navigating the oceans is wreaking havoc on shipping. Trust […]

To Afghanistan & Back more relevant than ever

Ted Rall’s book on his trip to Afganistan right in the middle of the war after 9/11 turns out to be dead-on these many years later. Ted predicted things wouldn’t be so easy and that the Taliban was hardly wiped out. Afghanistan has historically been the doom of empires from the UK to Russia and […]

I was in Northampton, MA, this weekend at this little club/bar called The Basement where they play an awesome mix of music. Seventies funk, girl groups, Studio One reggae, doo wop, Del Shannon, great stuff. One of the songs they played while I was there was Popcorn by Hot Butter, which almost immediately brought me […]

Mijeong, a Korean manhwa,  got a couple of reviews recently: “very thought provoking. It touches on some serious issues and treats them with respect” The Feminist Review “The stories in Mijeong work like poetry, evoking senses, feelings, that neither the words nor the images alone accomplish. Breathtaking artwork.” New City (Chicago alt. paper)

Read About Comics gives BIG KAHN a great review!

Greg McElhatton gives THE BIG KAHN a kickass review here. “The Big Kahn is easily Kleid’s best work to date as a writer; it’s clever and gripping, and there are a couple of turns in the story as it heads towards the conclusion that genuinely surprised me even as they still made sense. This feels […]
