The Outhouse was quoted, but who was it?

Postby thefourthman » Tue Aug 31, 2010 10:10 am

Good old Ru brought this to my attention.

but the following is quoted on the back of Bullet to The Head #3:
Colin Wilson's art compliments the story. His pencils are rough and unpolished, capturing the darkness of the plot. He also does a good job of making the crime itself seem... almost mundane. Many of his frames lack a focus point, giving the comic the feel of a Dirty Harry movie.


So good job on the back handed compliment. I would have it no other way!

This was the dark time when I wasn't around much. Was this from the review group or did we have an official review?

I don't see that as a backhanded compliment. If that's the goal of the artwork and he accomplished it, then it's a compliment.

The RG hated the book as I recall. But it is very it's undone but it works. It's unfocused but so was Dirty Harry.

That's for Bullet to the Head, right?

They read our reviews that week and still used a quote?

Wow.

Wow, indeed!

I guess they were desperate for quotes.

Cool, is this the 2nd time we've been quoted? There was that Olympus book, and now this.
