THE SCULPTOR by Scott McCloud
Shelf Awareness, February 13, 2015: STARRED REVIEW!
« “A satisfying and emotionally rich graphic novel that explores an artist's fear of being forgotten.”
Entertainment Weekly, February 6, 2015: SCAN ATTACHED!
“Using a sneak peek at his new graphic novel, The Sculptor, the legend [Scott McCloud] deconstructs one of the most overlooked and underappreciated art forms in comics: the speech bubble.”
The New York Times, February 3, 2015: SCAN ATTACHED!
“’The ultimate pride of the hyper-rational artist […] is to see if you can create something that wasn’t calculated at all.’”
DRAGONS BEWARE! by Jorge Aguirre, illus. by Rafael Rosado
Kirkus, March 1, 2015
“While the funny, fast-paced story will draw in readers, it is the trio's winning friendship and teamwork that will leave fans clamoring for a sequel. Clever Marie and little master chef-turned-swordsmith Gaston each get their chance to shine, and it's impossible not to root for scruffy, hotheaded Claudette. This rowdy adventure is sure to be a crowd pleaser.”
