“Hubert’s good ear for dialogue and fast-moving scenes keep the pace quick, while each page gives readers nearly a dozen panels of information and characterization.  There’s no obvious genre hook here – it’s simply good writing, a story about a girl’s dream to find a better life and the unfortunate slings and stones that hold […]

On Salvatore: “It’s fairly rare to find a book that effectively balances comedy and tragedy, but De Crecy’s peculiar gift is to find pathos through absurdity, which to my fairly well-seasoned eye comes off as unique. Comes with a high recommendation for the curious and the adventurous.” FA- the comiczine “This is clearly not a […]

I said it myself in the release for this book: after reading it, I was about to strangle Blanche for her block-headed naivete, this read can be frustrating. So some are disappointed, some even hate it and some like the reviewer at Gutter Geek (on The Comics Journal site) explains why this second tome of Blanche’s adventures might […]

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.

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 […]

“Houston’s grotesque and arty black and white takes getting used to—everyone looks worse than Lynda Barry’s nastiest caricatures, especially the city’s REAL superheroes: the Big Hair Tough Girls and their moms. But somehow it works. VERDICT Houston grabs a bunch of clichés and weaves them into something that ends up surprising, inventive, and perversely attractive. […]
