My self-published noir comic got its very first review today, from culture blog We The Nerdy. They cover comics, movies, games, tech stuff, and they gave Hogtown Spirits a 9/10! That's pretty awesome for our first review on our first comic. In the review the writer hits on some great aspects of the comic and really got what we were going for. Here are a few lines that really make me happy:
"The city feels like a character in and of itself and I left the book truly feeling like I’d travelled to a unique place..."
"The story itself really got its claws in me and was actually quite a heartfelt and nostalgic tale. I was initially prepared for a very hard-boiled story but instead got something that actually had quite a few melancholic elements and focused greatly on character."
"I could easily see this series being lengthened into a mini-series...I would gladly return to Hogtown for anything these two have up their sleeve."
You can read the whole review here.
Pick up the comic on Comixology or Gumroad. It's the only way to really enjoy Barb's gorgeous art!
