The first review of Jason Little’s Borb is out, and it’s a nice one. Publishers Weekly says “Little’s elegant linework, minimal dialogue, and unwavering focus on the man’s day-to-day struggles are powerful, giving us a gruesome, slapstick view of society’s underbelly.”

For Full Stop Magazine, writer Carmen Maria Machado reviewed MariNaomi’s Dragon’s Breath and Other True Stories. “Slipping into the identity of the book’s subject becomes part of the experience — part of the radical empathy that is so important with the memoir. There is no room for judgment between these pages or in this genre; rather, only compassion.”
A very thoughtful review of Vincent Stall’s Structures 12-23 was written by Phil Leblanc. “In 24 wordless pages, Stall forces the reader to reflect on current environmental issues and the very nature of our exploitative ways and environmental destruction.”
Mark Squirek has written a great review of Peter Schilling Jr.’s Carl Barks Duck for The New York Journal of Books. “Schilling shows us example after example of Barks’ nearly limitless imagination. Throughout his essays he also reveals a dark side to the brightly colored world of Disney Comics when they were written by Barks.”
Aug Stone reviewed David B.’s Incidents in the Night for The Quietus’ comic book random-up column. “As ever, the French cartoonist excels at portraying the mysterious and intriguing that lurks under the visibility of life on the surface.”
Rich Barrett reviewed Eel Mansions for his column at Mental Floss. “Probably the most Lynchian (as in filmmaker David Lynch) comic to be made since Dan Clowes’ 1993 graphic novel Like A Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, Derek Van Gieson’s Eel Mansions has plenty of Eraserhead’s confusing imagery but with Twin Peaks’ wry sense of humor as well.”
For the Chicago Tribune, Jake Austen penned a great review of Peter Schilling Jr.’s Carl Bark’s Duck. We recently published this book, and we’re extremely proud that its first review is in the Tribune.
