So says Ain’t It Cool News reviewing Ted Rall and Pablo Callejo’s Year of Loving Dangerously: “When a book like LOVING DANGEROUSLY does come along, I have to read it twice because I am so taken aback by the fact honest-to-God literature is being produced in graphic novel format. And that’s truly what LOVING DANGEROUSLY […]

“The Year of Loving Dangerously is just the second book I’ve read of Ted Rall’s, the first being his account of his travels along the Silk Road in Silk Road to Ruin. I quite enjoyed the latter, how he combined his memories of the trip with accurate descriptions of the people and political climes of […]

First off, for The Big Khan, a rave from Tony Isabella of Comics Buyers Guide: “Riveting. The emotions that drive this graphic novel make it a genuine page-turner with a satisfying conclusion.

“Say what you will about political lightning rod Ted Rall: the man’s not afraid of coming off like a dick. Callejo’s painted art, a far cry from the proto-punk stylings Rall uses on his political cartoons, captures the milieu wonderfully and even manages to convey the varying degrees of dismay Rall’s young self feels over […]
