Andrew McGinn's Blog

February 8, 2010

This is from the upcoming March 15 issue of Booklist:

“McGinn’s parodic wit never fails, producing one belly laugh after another, not least because he has comics historiography and conventions down cold. Neitzke complements the script to a T with a drawing style that suggests now Hi and Lois, now For Better or Worse, now Dennis the Menace, now Calvin and Hobbes.”

— Ray Olson, Booklist

Yeah, baby! So what are you waiting for? Preorder this sucker!

A little more early praise for "The Legacy" ...

"Andrew McGinn is at his most clever, packing a plethora of sly pop culture references into each chapter that serve as delightful Easter eggs for fans to discover. David Neitzke has a whimsical, yet polished style that perfectly matches the characters and their universe, and is reminiscent of that of 'Dennis the Menace' creator Hank Ketcham. The two working in concert with one another bring many smiles and more
than a few laugh-out loud moments in their scything commentary on comic strips and their place in the American newspaper industry."

-- Matthew J. Smith, Ph.D., co-author of "The Power of Comics:
History, Form & Culture"

Early praise for "The Legacy" is starting to roll in, true believers!

"McGinn and Neitzke cleverly examine the place of an esteemed newspaper comic strip in today's world, clearly in the midst of a graphic novel craze. This witty satire amusingly stretches historical and cultural facts in a tantalizing concoction of humor and sentiment."

-David A. Beronä, author of "Wordless Books: The Original Graphic Novels" and 2009 Harvey Awards nominee
