Geary’ Lindbergh on Girls Entertainment Network covering the Eisners

Covering the most important categories of the Eisner nominations, Girls Entertainment Network has this to say about Rick’s Lindbergh Child in his Treasury of XXth Century Murder which is up for two Awards:

“He gives us a step-by-step account of one of the most famous crimes in history: the Linbergh kidnapping. I’d heard of the case before, but here it’s laid out with every piece of evidence and every witness and suspect so well that I almost feel as if I had been living through it in 1932. I’m excited to see what subject or individual Geary takes a crack at next.” –Jill aka TheNerdyBird

The Eisner Awards will be given out next Friday at the San Diego Comic-con. Geary will be signing all his books at our booth #1528. See our signing schedule we posted earlier.

Teacher Librarian on Bluesman and Geary’s Lindbergh

Teacher Librarian magazine reviewed a couple historically based graphic novels of ours saying for Bluesman:

“A moody masterpiece of fiction that is all the more compelling because every word of it could be true. [Uses] a broad visual palette that matches its dramatic variety of emotions.”

And on Rick Geary’s “The Lindbergh Child“:
“The master of historical nonfiction in graphic novels contributes one of his best efforts. Simultaneously factual and poignant.”

‘Teacher Librarian’ on Bluesman and Lindbergh

The magazine ‘Teacher Librarian’ has some good things to say of two of our books:

For The Lindbergh Child:

“The tension between Geary’s newspaper-style captions and the devastated people he describes produces a story that is simultaneously factual and poignant.”

 

For Bluesman:

“A moody masterpiece of fiction.”

Happy Hooligan, Moresukine and more, reviewed…

Time Out NY says of Moresukine:

“Hilarious, sharply observed”

RC Harvey (his site needs token subscription) the noted historian and rant and raver says about Geary’s Lindbergh Child:

“Reading one of Geary’s books is always a delight. He methodically researches and then displays the facts of whatever crime he is exploring, deploying a hypnotic drawing style that has both charm and menace. “

and about Happy Hooligan:

“Opper’s strip was the first to deploy all of the medium’s basic ingredients from its very birth. “
