Robb did a fantastic Malinky Robot one for the “Collected Stories and Other Bits” collection a while back too :)


At CBR, Caleb Mozzocco says that The Shadow Hero is “a must-read, and a contender for one of the best comics of the year.


And here’s Jonathan Hills snazzy Pinup!! As Jonathan says: “if you’re lucky enough to be in San Diego, go straight to the source and buy it from Gene Luen Yang at the First Second table at #1323” :p

Meanwhile here’s a pinup by NYT-best selling creator George O’Connor!

And a review from Comic Book Resources, where Sonia Harris writes that the book manages “this crazy juggling act of being truly inspired and new, while also being packed with loving references to everything that has gone before in the genre.

A Green Turtle pinup by Kazu Kibuishi!

And The Shadow Hero gets a 10/10 rating in Newsarama‘s Review!

The Flight anthologies edited by Kazu were such fun to work on, and an inspiration for the Liquid City books, so very well chuffed to have Kazu do a piece!

And a big thanks for Forrest Helvie for the review :)
