Fanbase Press reviews THE ALCOHOLIC

Excerpt:

"Dean Haspiel is the other creative force behind The Alcoholic. He was tasked with the challenge of translating this convoluted, time-jumping, diary-of-sorts to life. The art in the book is consistently good throughout and never feels incidental to the writing. I was worried about this in the first half of the book, since Ames’ writing basically takes over huge swaths of the page, almost as if his words are eating the art alive. As the book progresses, the writing settles down, the exposition subsides to a humble narration, and the opportunities for quiet/tasteful panels flourish. Haspiel takes every advantage to make us feel through the unspoken context of Ames’ tragic moments."
