My First Review!

A few weeks ago, while in Pittsburgh for a convention, I was thrilled to get an e-mail from a friend telling me that I’d been reviewed by The Comics Journal’s Rob Clough. I was doubly thrilled to discover that it was a very positive review!

Clough has lately been reviewing all the CCS mini-comics that we gave him at MOCCA in April (what a backlog he must have!) and it’s been so much fun for us to see. Unfortunately, this delay means that the review didn’t link here (as the People’s Republic was then only a gleam in its founder’s eye), but to my old Flickr page. Also, the Mockingbird art pulled from there was not from the final book, but from a version of it I had been working on before I came to CCS. I cringe a little bit every time I see it, but still, no press is bad press!

I’m planning on sending Clough a completed “Mockingbird,” as I only gave him a preview book at MOCCA. Also, for anyone who was wondering, there is a second issue on the way. I’m not sure when it will be done, but I’m about five pages in right now.
