Graphic Novel Reporter on Geary’s The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans: “Geary shows the same flair for pacing and drama here as he did in the other volumes in this series and in his nine-volume A Treasury of Victorian Murder series. He builds the tension by slowly revealing the facts, using a journalistic tone of [...]
“Newcomer Hobbs works hard not to oversell the drama, focuing on the tensions withtin the group. Intriguing character study of different personalities under pressure. Tuazon’s art adds to the ominous mood.” Publishers Weekly on The Broadcast.
The Broadcast is nominated for Best Graphic Novel for Teens by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). While this GN is not targeted at teens per se, it is good for all ages from teen up. We look forward to making the final cut.

Eric Hobbs’ and Noel Tuazon’s The Broadcast picks up more reviews and interviews: The Gutter Geek at The Comics Journal had this rave: “Mature, original, and deeply thoughtful.

Meanwhile, Johanna at Comics Worth Reading is giving away a signed copy of the book this week [...]
As usual, the writing is well-tooled and funny, with just the right touch of absurdity. The guest artists have a deft hand, though they don’t stray far from the usual Dungeon style. 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 [...]
So I just finished up an interview with John Hogan over at GraphicNovelReporter.com. I’m a pretty big fan of the GNR site so it’s nice to have an interview up on the main page.

Tuazon’s use of ink washes [...]
