I love Bill Sherman:
"Though I'm generally as wary of the High Concept as AiT publisher Larry Young is enamored with it, I've gotta admit that there are some HCs that are well nigh irresistible. Among 'em Ė for this monster-adoring reader, at least Ė is the selling point for Joe Casey, Caleb Gerard & Damian Couceiro's Full Moon Fever
(AiT/Planet Lar). Werewolves on the moon? Okay, you've gotta really screw things up to completely lose me on that 'un... So, let's this out of the way first: Casey & company don't screw things up."
Graphic Novel Journal
takes a look at White Death:
"Set along the mountains of Italy during World War I, White Death
provides a new twist on the war story while still providing many of the familiar tropes. WWI is rarely discussed in comics so for that fact alone, this book is worth picking up, but Charlie Adlard's charcoal and chalk sketches on gray paper sets the mood."
Marc Mason over at Should It Be a Movie?
looks at Full Moon Fever:
"...the latest in AiTís pure high-concept graphic novels. Much like the recent SMOKE AND GUNS, it throws out an idea that isnít so much a question of whether or not it should be a movie, but how long it will take to get it to the big screen."
Yes, it's that time of year, again, when all Red Sox fans gather together to relive the glorious yesteryear of 2004 with Timmy and Tom. Seriously, if you want to have a best-selling book, do what they did and actually predict the future.
Of the many thousands of books that hit the streets detailing the glory that was the Red Sox last year, Surviving Grady
was the only one written by a coupla regular joes. See the guys talk about the wonder that is them on this short video clip from NECN.
+++++The Miami Herald understands:
"In a strange and exciting twist on the comic book anthology, Young presents some of his more interesting ideas, each paired with a worthy artistic collaborator... Proof of Concept
makes for an effective and consistently entertaining collection
that eschews genre restrictions."
