Graphic Novel Reporter on Geary’s The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans: “Geary shows the same flair for pacing and drama here as he did in the other volumes in this series and in his nine-volume A Treasury of Victorian Murder series. He builds the tension by slowly revealing the facts, using a journalistic tone of […]
We’ve received two great endorsements on Sean Michael (“AX: Alternative Manga”) Wilson and Chie Kutsuwada’s upcoming Story of Lee, shipping next month: “The fear of cultural imperialism, the dread of loss, the collapse of family, the still-prevalent and widespread sexism in both Eastern and Western society – big themes, but present in every intercultural love […]

Takes advantage of the unique affordances of the comics medium to tell a complex tale interweaving several sets of characters and individual dramas with minimal dialogue and […]
Eric Hobbs, writer of the acclaimed new release The Broadcast, is interviewed by Joanna Draper Carlson on Comics Worth Reading. And this just in: an interview up on Aint It Cool News! Eric is such a popular guy.
