Reviews I Agree With cover books I’m not reviewing myself (usually because I have nothing to add, or they’re worth talking about but not to my taste).
From Brian Heater at The Daily Cross Hatch, covering the debut graphic novel by Josh Simmons:
Our story’s long close is a slow, painful burn–one that never fully gives up hope, making it all the more difficult to endure to the bitter end.
… It’s a gory and sad fall from grace, even when told with Simmons’ simple art.
…it’s a well-designed story, and while Simmons’ textless execution seems initially gimmicky, the reader quickly becomes oblivious to their absence. House is a good, rewarding read, but still ultimately a painful one, until the final page fades to black.
Jog really liked this horror comic.
