The Creators Project reviews Beef With Tomato

"Dean Haspiel's comic about the struggle, grind, and weirdness of New York will absolutely hit close to home for anyone living in the five boroughs. But his character work and storytelling make this tale about a guy trying to get out from a bad situation truly universal: Haspiel’s a prolific creator in the indie/creator owned comic scene, but he’s also well known for creating illustrations for HBO’s Bored to Death. Though this book came out last year, it's worth revisiting (and deserves a spot on this list) now that it's available digitally on comixology."

Here's a link to the review:
