Jesse Lonergan’s latest, JOE & AZAT is a fun discovery for reviewers: Andrew ‘Capt. Comics’ Smith of Scripps Howard News service thought: “One almost wants to meet Azat, the eternally optimistic and enthusiastic Turkmen with an idealized view of America, plus grandiose dreams of business success and romantic love. Joe knows that Azat’s ambitions are […]

School Library Journal pipes in on Geary‘s latest entry to his increasingly popular Treasury of Murder: “Geary shows how the real people living the Hollywood dream might not have always been what they wanted others to believe. Clothing, hairstyles, and architecture give readers a “you are there” sense, as does the action, which is seen by […]

“The Year of Loving Dangerously is an excellent work. If I may have wanted to know more about what happened to Rall at the end, that merely shows he and Callejo did an excellent job of telling a story. As more folks read it or when this book is filmed (yes, I said that twice), […]

Mijeong still fascinates: High Low review

“Byun is a stunning draftsman and character designer, but one got a sense of restlessness from this collection of stories. This book felt like an author trying to shake something loose in himself and looking to a different set of influences and styles. Byun is certainly an artist whose work I’d like to see more […]

Another great review on this collection our imprint Forever Nuts did: “The “Forever Nuts” book does this rarely seen comic strip proud. It’s a good read, not just for students of early comic art, but for lovers of an enjoyably rough-hewn, low-brow American brand of humor.” Pop Culture Gadabout

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 […]

Feminist Review and New City on Mijeong

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)
