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 voice that rarely dips into sensationalism. He allows his art to show the horrors of murder, with dramatic shadows, wide-angle shots, and close-ups all used to good effect. Geary’s black-and-white palette and line shading give the right historical feel to his tales, and he has a sharp eye for the details of a time period. That, combined with his historical research, makes his story all the more horrific as the reality of it is impossible to escape.”
Snow Wildsmith (gotta love that name)
Eric Hobbs of The Broadcast is interviewed on ‘My Friend Amy’s Blog.”
Heidi McDonald on The Beat says of Dungeon:
“A sprawling satirical fantasy about anthropomorphic warriors in a magical, ludicrous kingdom. It’s a darkly whimsical epic that’s a mash-up of D&D, Cerebus, Groo and any number of works by headliners Trondheim and Joann Sfar.”
And she goes on to present a whole bunch of pages…
Sean Michael Wilson of our forthcoming The Story of Lee got a great piece in the English language Japan Times. A great way to find out more about him. He has quite a few GNs out this year, including AX:Alternative Manga which was chosen as a top GN of the year. He’s a Scot expat in Japan, now heavily steeped in manga… interesting story.
Oh, and an amusing quote of the week on Elephant Man from Now Read This:
“Warning: this book contains Six-foot talking flies and shaved, car-racing monkeys.”
Do we need to quote any other part of this review? 😀
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.”
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.”

“Terrific book by a modern comics master”
