27.Apr.2008 Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’m blurb-worthy!
So, I was catching up on this week’s comics and was reading through on of my favorites from Image Comics, Jay Faerber and Mahmud A. Asrar’s Dynamo 5. After another another great issue, I flipped over to the back cover where I saw the following…
This quote comes from a Secret Stash review I did of Dynamo 5 back in Wizard #191, and while Mahmud mentioned me on his blog back when the review came out, and I’ve had blurbs of my reviews featured in press releases before, I believe this is my first blurb to actually grace the cover of a book—which is super exciting. I don’t write my reviews consciously trying to make them cover-worthy, I write them for readers looking for honest looks at books. But at the same time, it’s nice to know that something I’ve written—and honestly believe about a comics—was viewed by the creators and the people at Image as something that they thought was worth putting on their book. So, thanks to Jay, Mahmud and the good folks at Image for making one of my minor journalistic dreams come true!
Special thanks on this post goes out to my sister Lexie, who dug through a pile of my old Wizard’s littering my room back on the ol’ suburban Chicago homestead to help me confirm #191 featured my review. Thanks Lex!
