More opinions on Geary’s Axe-Man, The Broadcast, Networked

Tony Isabella loooves Geary’s latest The Axe-Man of New Orleans:

“He takes his readers back to that time, draws us into the fearful moments of the spree, and leaves us more than a little unsettled afterwards. THE FULL FIVE TONYS!”

in the Comics Buyers Guide. And here’s Sequential Tart piping in on it:

“To die for! If you’re a comics reader and a fan of the true crime genre, this book belongs on your shelf. Prepare to be horrified and amused when you add this graphic novel to your treasury of murder.”

“Well done!”

Says Comic Book Resources of The Broadcast. Sequential tart on this same book:

“Very compelling. Grade 7 out of 10.”

“If you’re a fan of techno-thrillers, you’ll enjoy this read. It’s refreshing to see a fast-paced adventure with some real ideas behind it.”

Comics Worth Reading about Networked.

massively amusing

“You can’t get enough of these characters from page to page; you want to read what other sick shit the Holiest of Holies has gotten himself into lately. You want to see the Boss Karate Black Guy Jones tap some tail and kick some fat ass. Houston’s art is just as exaggerated and over-the-top as his stories, and every character receives the royal and perverted treatment. Tits are huge, wrinkles and saggy jowls are pronounced and packages are spared no expense. Jones’ outfit of platform heels, pin-striped bell bottoms and UFO style afro alone helps make the book massively amusing.”

Comics Waiting Room

“Through White’s impeccable dark humor asnd expressive cartoon-styled art, Rick Watts lives the grand collection of life’s little disasters that are instantly recognizable in our own lives. *** 1/2”

Omaha in Library Journal? and more on Eurotica…

[You must be over 18 to click on links on this post!]

Yup, Omaha the Cat Dancer by Reed Waller, Kate Worley and James Vance was part of a list of ‘16 graphics novels of sex, drugs, and rock and roll’ prompted by the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, run in Library Journal.

See the article.

Obviously only libraries serving the more liberal communities will have such books in their collections! But all the more of a tip of the hat to them for doing so.

Also, The Comics Buyers Guide has recently reviewed our First Time, giving it 3 and 1/2 stars and cites various of its stories as stand-outs (September issue).

Why I Killed Peter gets 4 stars from Comics Buyers Guide

The latest issue of Comics Buyers Guide makes Why I  Killed Peter a pick of the month, gives it a full 4 stars and calls it “One of the best autobiographical graphic novels. In fact, it may actually be the best.”

If you haven’t checked this out yet, it’s a very sensitive rendering of a fairly shocking experience.
