“Being that this is my first time reviewing for Tart, I found the title on the cover of First Time entirely appropriate. I never thought I’d find erotic entertainment to be fancy, seductive, thought-provoking and titillating. After years of exposure to hentai (which makes me giggle like a little girl at all the tentacular penises […]

The review site Curled Up with a Good Book reviews Ted Rall’s Silk Road to Ruin: “Although you may think that a book which deals with political subject matter and a part of the world whose nations most Americans know little to nothing about (and have a difficult time even pronouncing correctly) might be dull […]

Geary’s Lincoln in School Library Journal

“The concise narrative incorporates diverse threads and is packed with details that will mesmerize readers—Lincoln’s prophetic dream of his own death, John Wilkes Booth’s careful and cold-blooded preparations, the identification of the perpetrator’s body after his death by the initials he had carved into his right hand as a child. Geary also raises questions that […]

The Boston Globe on Sunday had a great roundup by Carlo Wolff of graphic novels and amongst the books reviewed, David B’s Nocturnal Conspiracies: “Teeming with animals, corrupt politicians, alluring women, his own malleable consciousness and other shape shifts, this scans like a dream.” And Miss Don’t Touch Me: “A more orthodox piquancy infuses Miss […]

Japan’s English language newspaper, The Daily Yomiuri, had some kind words on Metronome: “Offers a surprisingly engaging story that, without the hindrance of language, anyone can understand. Tanaka makes good use of rythmn, themes and cadences to set the scene and mood.”

Comics Waiting Room. com has this to say about Little Nothings 2 What stood out for me here overall, though, was the observational quality of the writing. Trondheim is one of the most accomplished artists in the world, but he has a poetic soul with the pen. When he ruminates on what it feels like […]

Newsarama: Trondheim appears determined to guarantee himself a place on everyone’s Best Of lists on an annual basis. Everything about the strips, the humor, the coloring, the observations about our cultural standards, is warm and inviting. Trondheim’s self-effacing wit remains strong. Little Nothings has become the most welcome, positive and anticipated book of the year. […]

“Sibylline imbues each short with a clear and strongly realized emotional core. Most enjoyable, nearly every story paints sex as a positive, joyful experience. There’s no shame or humiliation here, as nine of the women (unfortunately, not the doll) are willing partners in each act, and everyone comes out of their experiences richer for it. […]
