PopCultHQ.com reviews THE RED HOOK vol.1

"Dean’s writing for Red Hook is quite frankly fantastic. It is straightforward and witty and full of great hero one-liners. It’s like he took a deep drink from the same well that Jack Kirby, Will Eisner, Stan Lee and so many other stalwarts of the Golden, Silver and Bronze Age drank from. Not one line, not one word of this TPB’s writing will leave readers wanting. This is a Dean Haspiel win all the way.

Dean’s art is also a big win. His style is sleek, yet a bit rough. To this reviewer, it is a means of showing the crazy world that Red Hook lives in, a Brooklyn that is its own land with new rules. So what does this lead to artwise? Nothing short of spectacular superhero brawls, eye-popping splash-panels, and out-of-the-world action."
