7:15pm: Multiversity Comics reviews Dean Haspiel's Heart-Shaped Hole
Greg Matiasevich wrote a great review of my new Billy Dogma magazine, HEART-SHAPED HOLE at Multiversity Comics.

Excerpts:
"In an interview from the ‘Men Without Fear’ documentary from the “Daredevil” DVD, Frank Miller talked briefly about his thoughts behind introducing Elektra during his run on the title. “Why wouldn’t these people be operatic in their romance,” he asked, “the way they are in their combat? These people bring down buildings with their passion; that’s what they do with their fights.” While not every superhero romance has to be elevated to Wagnerian proportions, there’s something in the DNA of superhero comics that gives all creators working in it the license to go bigger-than-life at any moment. And there’s a lot of superhero DNA in Billy Dogma. But creator Dean Haspiel (who grew up on the comics of Miller, Kirby, Chaykin, Simonson, Byrne, and the like) splices it with the autobio gene to give us personal storytelling expressing itself as dynamically as I’m sure it felt to him as he lived it."

"The stories themselves primarily follow Billy Dogma and Jane Legit; their love and relationship cranked up to an 11 so loud even Miller would be proud. Nothing evokes passion more than walking around with a literal hole where your heart would be if it hadn’t been ripped out of your chest from a break-up. But Haspiel doesn’t load his characters or stories down like Miller does in almost all of his work; Dogma and Legit still have a snap like cool kids in love, not a snap like bones being broken. There’s a charm and a zing to this material, even though done bit-by-bit over almost a decade, that keeps tropes and slang done to death by other creators still effective here."
