BOINGBOING says TAG is IT!

 

Cory Doctorow just can’t stop with the BOOM! love. Today, at BOINGBOING he had this to say about our collection of TAG:

…a damned fine tale about love and betrayal, a story with many layers that are peeled back as the story moves to a moving climax.

Now…how awesome is that? Three reviews in one week!

BOINGBOING hearts our ZOMBIE TALES TPB too!

Once again, Cory Doctorow of BOINGBOING fame strikes again! The man is on a BOOM! Studios review roll. After giving us a great review for the DEATH VALLEY TPB, he now turns to our ZOMBIE TALES TPB, having this to say:

…Zombie Tales runs the gamut. Every story in here is good, and some are GREAT, like John Rogers’s "Daddy Smells Different," and they’re mostly in the vein of the best of the Twilight Zone stories, punchy little tales with surprising twist endings, and like the Twilight Zone, the anthology’s strength is its breadth.

Just awesome. Thanks –again– Cory!

PLANETARY BRIGADE Trade Paperback hits the shelves today!!!

 

Finally, the hard to find Giffen/DeMatteis PLANETARY BRIGADE series is collected under one cover. This is the series AIN’T IT COOL NEWS said:

"If you are smart enough to like the JLI, you’ll love this one…This is old school foolin’ on comic book tradition. The menaces take the backseat to the witty and snide interactions….especially the interactions between the martini swilling Mauve Visitor and just about everyone."’

So run, don’t walk, to your LCS (that’s local comic store, folks!) and pick yourself up a copy! Or if you live in a place with no LCS in sight – you can order from us here!

SBC interviews Grant of 2 GUNS – the greatest heist comic of the year!


Steven Grant gets the patented, in-depth Silver Bullet Comics! treatment in this interview about the greatest heist comic of the year, BOOM!’s 2 GUNS! Here’s a little sample:

Tim O’Shea/Silver Bulltet Comics: While this is a crime noir tale, you’re a writer known for injecting wit into your work. How important is wit to the stories you construct?

Steven Grant: I am? Huh.

I don’t know that I go out of my way to inject wit into any stories. I’m just perverse, and it leaks out.

BOINGBOING hearts DEATH VALLEY TPB – “…like John Hughes vs George Romero”

 

Check out Cory Doctorow‘s review of DEATH VALLEY TPB over at BOINGBOING!

It’s like John Hughes meets George Romero, a great mix of bathos and pathos. The art is great: manga-inflected, but clearly American, and the dialog just snaps off the page.

Thanks Cory!
