Reviews City

First some exciting news: The  Amazing Heroes Kickstarter got funded, which means that I’ll soon be able to get my grubby hands on a Shadow Hero Action Figure!

There was also a nice review in the Washington Post which claims that the book is “an inventive and culturally intelligent marvel“, and that “Liew’s beautiful line tips a cap to legendary comics artists like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.” (!)

Much meaner (and totally wrong and erroneous of course :p) is Paste Magazine, where it’s argued that the Shadow Hero is “a small piece of the larger picture” in Gene’s ouevre, and that the art’s “thick, black outlines and angular faces feel wrong for the subject matter.”

Humbug! :p

Kinder reviews back at the  Storytime Hooligans, as well as Reader of Fictions help dissuade me from Hulk Smashing and/or dissolving into a puddle of thick, black, angular tears 🙂

The Southeast Asian Anthology Liquid City Vol 3 gets a review too on Shelf Awareness, which says that the collection’s theme (“If you knew the world was ending, what would be the story you would most want to tell?“) has “received a lot of amazing responses, from the fantastical and apocalyptic to the realistic and personal.”

Buy it, buy it all!
