Brian and Sherman weigh in

Pop Culture Gadabout:

"Judging from an advanced copy of the premiere ish of Brian Wood & Ryan Kelly's Local (Oni Press), it looks as if Wood has another A-Grade character-driven series in the works."


"I can't talk about LOCAL without talking about Ryan Kelly. I know Kelly's work from GIANT ROBOT WARRIORS and as half the 1/3rd of the art team of LUCIFER, but it's here that he really takes off. His work is expressive and dense, a perfect fit for what Wood is doing here. And yeah, I see some similarities to people like Paul Pope, Troy Nixey and Farel Dalrymple, but Kelly is an artist in and to himself. He might just be next year’s artist to watch."
