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 […]
