As usual, the writing is well-tooled and funny, with just the right touch of absurdity. The guest artists have a deft hand, though they don’t stray far from the usual Dungeon style. A good continuation of a worthwhile series.” Booklist on the latest Dungeon, Monstres vol.3 And here’s Newsarama on The Broadcast: A taut thriller […]
“Hobbs’ brilliant, character-driven script weaves a tight psychological thriller that at once feels both intimate and epic. Although, on the surface, Tuazon’s raw, cartoony style may seem like a mismatch for Hobbs’ tight, sophisticated script, the contrast in artistic sensibilities only underscores the intense emotions lurking beneath the plot’s surface. Tuazon’s use of ink washes […]
Tony Isabella loooves Geary’s latest The Axe-Man of New Orleans: “He takes his readers back to that time, draws us into the fearful moments of the spree, and leaves us more than a little unsettled afterwards. THE FULL FIVE TONYS!” in the Comics Buyers Guide. And here’s Sequential Tart piping in on it: “To die […]
“This fast-paced, engrossing read should appeal to teens and up while pushing them to grasp ominous possibilities associated with social networking, cellphones and such. Carabella is such an engaging action herione that she holds interest and empathy. With loose, enthusiastic color art.” So says Library Journal about Networked.
Another rave for Geary’s latest The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans, this time from the influential Booklist: “Geary’s archly antiquated drawing style is ideally suited for bringing bygone eras to vivid, convincing life. Geary’s exacting, historically accurate approach makes this—as well as his other nonfiction works—a natural for true-crime fans as well as comics lovers.” About […]
“After 9 years, Richard Moore is bringing the Boneyard series to a conclusion, but you can still get in on the fun with volume 7. And don’t worry if you haven’t read the previous 6: it’s easy to catch on to the characters and the story in this volume is complete in itself. It’s hilariously […]
“Speaking of great art, you can’t go wrong with Geary — his work displays a humor, style and class that make it instantly recognizable. This latest book adds an element of horror, though: It tells the compelling, bizarre story of a series of brutal murders in New Orleans that seem connected (but are they?). While […]
Calling it “Thoroughly enjoyable entertainment”, School Library Journal in their latest issue goes on: “The artwork is energetic with a rock-solid understanding of cartooning and kineticism … with an unusual protagonist and showcasing a quirky new voice in comics.” …Rock-solid understanding… and Brooke is all of maybe 22, fresh out of college? Oh, yeah. And […]
A nice informative interview of Rick Geary over at Ain’t It Cool Comics as well as a review of his latest Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans: “As I read, the voice narrating this book reminds me of the beginning of MAGNOLIA or the narration throughout THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD. […]
Andrew Wheeler, that is, at his Antick Musings blog where he’s reviewed: The Axe-Man of New Orleans, Rick Geary’s latest Treasury of Murder tome Boneyard vol.7 by Richard Moore and also has nice words to say about our sister co. Papercutz‘ The Smurfs.
