Reviews of Farel Dalrymple’s It Will All Hurt and François Vigneault’s Titan over at Comics Bulletin:
“It’s worth the money for the tactile experience of reading a comic where somebody actively cared what paper it as printed on, not to mention living in a world where there’s more physical evidence of Farel Dalyrmple’s art… some of his best work yet. All imperfect lines and understated watercolors, he relies on three-tier, six-panel layouts as a default but seems itching to break the formula, which he does frequently and gleefully, often making amazing use of the negative gutter space as parts of his panels bleed out into it or inhabit the white space entirely. It’s always interesting for the reader as the artist keeps himself on his toes.”
—Danny Djeljosevic, 4.5/5 stars
“François Vigneault has created a multifaceted, fully dimensional universe in these opening two chapters of a six-part series. Any science fiction fan can quickly find themselves comfortable in the setting of this tension-filled moon. But the setting on the moon feels unfamiliar because it’s so specific, so unique to Vigneault’s imagination and so full-fledged in its vision… The settings of the mining colony are presented in small but telling details in the foreground and background—we’re neither overwhelmed nor underwhelmed by detail. Instead we get just enough detail in Vigneault’s artwork—wonderfully presented in black, white and orange—to make Titan come alive as we read about it.”
—Jason Sacks, 3.5/5 stars

ADAPT by Jonny Negron now available to order
“Roses From Concrete” – Matt Seneca’s essay begins with a quote from Lord Jamar in Ice-T’s “The Art of Rap”, pulling back the curtain on the secret origin of hip hop. Hip hop was the creation of something from nothing; taking the materials at hand and turning them into instruments. Parallels are drawn between the outlaw artforms and their revolutionary heritage. Accompanied by over two dozen portraits of the greatest rappers in history as illustrated by Jonny Negron, and a 2Pac comic.
The extended Press Gang table at this year’s Stumptown Comics Fest gets plenty of love from the Comics Reporter, recommended buys include Adapt #1 by Jonny Negron, Benjamin Marra’s comics, and the King City trade by Brandon Graham. Yup yup.
