The Beat: Hearts Beat & Fists Clench for Justice in Dean Haspiel’s THE RED HOOK

AJ Frost wrote a very kind review of my graphic novel, THE RED HOOK, at The Beat.


"a triumph of sequential storytelling. Besides being one of the most prolific and hardworking auteurs on the scene, Haspiel’s chops, imagination, and ingenuity are all on powerful display here as he tells the tale of a thief magically coerced into becoming a hero. It’s a thrilling and thoughtful ride."

"...the art throughout the book ebbs and flows from quietude to bombast. Every turn of the page reveals something extraordinary, which is an even greater feat because the book debuted without physical pages. The coloring in this book too is simply extraordinary. There’s an eclectic mix of pages that alternate between muted two color palette followed by huge explosions of hue and brio. There is always something new to discover here."

"The land of New Brooklyn is a fecund playing ground for the modern superhero. With the Red Hook, Dean Haspiel has created is a masterwork of the comics form. He goes for the high concept and succeeds in sticking the landing."
