The Brooklyn Rail reviews THE ALCOHOLIC

"One final note on The Alcoholic: Dean Haspiel is a danger to writers. Whether he’s portraying Jonathan A.’s inebriated decline with descending panels and sudsy backgrounds; or implementing downcast glances and lengthy shadows to reveal a shame-filled moment between two teen-aged boys; or representing an IBS attack with a snorting dragon; Haspiel seduces with images, often making words moot."
