Forces of Geek: Dean Haspiel Bids Adieu To ‘The Red Hook’ (review)

Clay N. Ferno reviewed THE RED HOOK season one at Forces of Geek. Thanks, Clay!


"Stan and Jack would be proud of the names of the characters and plot points in the story. You don’t need to be a New York native to get the jokes, you have probably seen enough television to cover the main neighborhoods in Brooklyn referenced."

"The Red Hook isn’t a rehash of old Marvel or Dean’s work on Archie’s The Fox. While there are similarities and some Kirby-as-Genre stylistic choices, this is the most unique to market independently published comic since the pay to play model of Brian K. Vaughn and Marcos Martin’s The Private Eye."

"The end of the story opens up to a larger world (it is comics after all) and sets up New Brooklyn heroes in a relatively clean sandbox to play in. Art is currency. Thieves are now heroes. New Brooklyn has been born, and I for one can’t wait to see what else is hiding in that particular Borough."
