“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 […]

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 […]

“Suffused with geeky humor and high adventure, well drawn, and emotionally real, Boneyard v.7 concludes Michael and Abbey’s story, but Richard Moore remains a comics creator to watch, and Boneyard stands as a series well worth rereading many times over. ” As on Newsarama

“Joann Sfar and Lewis Trondheim, two of the world’s wittiest and creative cartoonists, continue to script.  They stuff each tale chock full of insane twists and wild ideas, including the various ways people survive on a floating, rotating island.  Meanwhile, their dialogue crackles with an uncanny balance of humor and compassion, providing the readers with […]

Trondheim’s Little Nothings keeps rolling on on the web: Rob Clough at The Comics Journal: “I always found myself drawn to his autobiographical material the most.  He’s self-deprecating without being mawkish, introspective without navel-gazing and consistently funny. At this point, I hope Little Nothings runs forever.  It’s already my favorite diary comic of all time […]

Newsarama on Rall’s Year

While saying this may fall short of a must-read, Michael Lorah at Newsarama says: “Rall does a fine job laying out the story, weaving his year of dangerous love with flashbacks that explain his predicament.
