Simon Hanselmann Divines His "Megahex" - Comic Book Resources -
"He doesn't just draw the funny or sexy moments – he lets the characters and the readers enjoy and laugh, but then he shows the fallout from some of the characters' actions, depicting them as them scared and desperate, pathetic and troubled. Hanselmann's skill at depicting this range of emotions and exploring those consequences is what makes his work so fascinating and so worth rereading." – Alex Dueben, Comic Book Resources - Fantagraphics Books
Set to Sea | Now Read This! -
"A true graphic odyssey which any lover of a dream-life must see, this eternally fresh yet solid entertainment is a genuine 'must read'." – Win Wiacek, Now Read This! - Fantagraphics Books
Raunchy and Revered -
"While the early issues stand as rowdy documents of the 1960s counterculture, Zap was also more. In reinventing the comic book, it set off legal battles and conversations over censorship, brought attention to cartoonists as artists, and set an example for generations of alternative comics creators like Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, Joe Matt and the Hernandez Brothers." – Dana Jennings, The NY Times - Fantagraphics Books
I'm Not Scary, I'm Just Drawn That Way: Great Comics For Halloween: NPR -
"This adorable little collection of strips is the perfect prize for your costume contest. Growing up, you may have gotten to know the Great Pumpkin mainly through the evergreen TV special — but the original strips collected here are both brainier and more emotionally complex than the show." – Etelka Lehoczky, NPR - Fantagraphics Books
On the Scene: Reception at Society of Illustrators for Heroes of the Comics — The Beat -
"The portraits are a genuine insight and reflection of the person and their contribution. Special kudos to Drew for his careful research so that the bios are accurate and help to add to the ongoing study of how it all began in comics." – Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson, The Beat - Fantagraphics Books
Multiversity Comics » Soliciting Multiversity: The Top 10 “Best of the Rest” from September 2014’s Previews -
"Let me be perfectly clear: The Don Rosa & Carl Barks Duck books are as good as comics get. Period. Nothing surpasses – only matches – the pure imagination, humor, adventure, and heart of these Donald Duck & Uncle Scrooge stories." – Vince Ostrowski, Multiversity Comics - Fantagraphics Books
Gast | The Comics Journal -
"Like the similarly peripatetic cartoonist Ben Katchor, she draws from, and at, unusual angles, beckoning the eye to travel across the story-world’s space to unusual nooks and crannies, dirty floors and empty skies." – Sean T. Collins, The Comics Journal - Fantagraphics Books
Foolbert Funnies: Histories and Other Fictions by Frank Stack - First Look -
HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week | 13th Dimension, Comics, Creators, Culture -
"Any time a Carl Barks or Don Rosa book of Donald Duck or Uncle Scrooge comics is released, I get all excited. Because they’re great! I’m not kidding! Also good for jaded fans too cool for kids’ comics." – Dan Greenfield, 13th Dimension - Fantagraphics Books
Drawing the Dark Journeys of Drifters -
"Lane’s fluency in portraiture, page layout, lettering, and storytelling is on display, as deep contextual details are crammed into tight panels and captions." – Dominic Umile, Hyperallergic - Fantagraphics Books
Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods | Now Read This! -
"Like the very best children’s classics, this is a book that isn’t afraid to confront dark matters and actively embraces fear and sadness amidst the wonders in an effort to craft a better story. Compelling, beguiling and visually intoxicating, this latest Sock Monkey yarn judiciously leavens discovery with anxiety, heartbreak with gleeful imaginative innocence and terror with bold triumph." – Win Wiacek, Now Read This! - Fantagraphics Books
