Word of the Nerd reviews The Red Hook

Christopher Calloway wrote a very kind review of the first third of my free/weekly webcomic series THE RED HOOK at Word of the Nerd.


"The Red Hook is a loving tribute the Golden and Silver Age of comics. It also a metaphor for the changes Brooklyn is undergoing that is transforming the community and squeezing its heart."

"Haspiel has leveraged the single panel vertical reading mode of Webtoon’s platform to showcase his artwork and storytelling technique. It is the best example I have seen of a comic book created natively for the digital world. I have never experienced sequential art which looks so organic and powerful on a computer screen or tablet device. Short of holding the original art your hands, the detail of the pencil lines can be best experienced in its single panel presentation. The vertical format also makes me feel as though I am propelled along throughout the story beside The Red Hook."

"The Red Hook Chapters 1-10 is fun yet heart-felt story with a strong connection to the creators and community that inspired it. It is story of a criminal with no choice but to become a hero, lest he die."
