Some people talking...
I feel like Local's already been out for ages, since we've been very liberal with pdf previews and review copies, bhttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifut for almost all of you out there, is a brand new book. Some feedback:
32 pages: "...the writing itself is simply awesome. Wood manages to capture the tension of the scene without overwhelming the reader with made-up drama. The result is that the reader feels privy to an intimate, slightly awkward scene that is palpably real.
"Someone else said it and I apologize in advance for not remembering and giving credit to the source, but one of the strengths of the book is that the script seems to match perfectly the artist's sense of rhythm. Panels that are more powerful standing alone are left uncluttered. The choice of black and white art was a savvy one as the lack of color seems to force the reader to focus on the tension of the scene, replayed again and again for the reader."
Chris Butcher: "..What struck me was that, as good as the first issue is both on the art and story fronts, every piece of art I see from the series is an improvement on the last. I hope he's able to finish all 12 issues of LOCAL before the usual bunch of poachers show up and offer him $600 a page to do an ICEMAN mini-series..."
Ichiban: "I love that each episode will be self-contained--thanks for the finality."
