Thanks to everyone who came to the signing last night. It was great to meet everyone, except maybe the guy who thought I was staff and wanted to know where the 10-sided dice were.

Anyway, reviews!

Brian Cronin at Comic Book Resources – Jamie McKelvie’s debut solo comic from Image (McKelvie was the artist on Phonogram) came out this week, and it opens strongly, with some very nice characterization building and an amusing/interesting premise.

Greg Burgas at Comic Book Resources – Jamie McKelvie, the artist and co-creator of Phonogram, one of this year’s best mini-series, finally gets around to Suburban Glamour #1, which I’ve been looking forward to for a while. McKelvie’s art is tremendous – it looks simple, but he gives his characters such expressive and unique looks that you’re just drawn into the story easily.

Graeme McMillan at Savage Critic – This comic isn’t for everyone; it may even just be for people who grew up in small towns with a sense of “There’s got to be more than this.” But as one of those people, and as someone who picked up this week’s books looking for something unexpected and upbeat, I have to tell you that I thought this was really Very Good. (You’ll have to scroll a bit, the direct link to the post isn’t working.)

Kirk Warren at Weekly Crisis – This was a pleasant surprise. Some of the best and most realistic teenage dialogue I’ve ever read combined with a unique and interesting story.

Aloha Jamie! Congratulations on “Suburban Glamour.” The colour really does the book a world of good and I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next.
