The Unrelenting Coolness of Dean Haspiel and Red Hook by Ed Catto at Pop Culture Squad

Big THANKS to Ed Catto for writing nice things about me and my Red Hook series at Pop Culture Squad.


"Dean Haspiel is a certain kind of artist. When you read his work, you can’t help but like what he’s doing. And then the more you learn about him, you can’t help but admire who he is, what he’s doing and why he’s doing it. It’s inevitable that you want to learn more about his focus and his work.

There’s no denying that he’s a cool cat. That’s part of it, but only part. He’s also a passionate believer. He’s the type of guy that’s fighting the good fight. It’s easy to picture him getting into arena each day, doing his best, and then repeating that the very next day. His purposeful work ethic and big dreams shine through every page of his work."

"There’s angst and drama peppered with a healthy dose of “I can’t wait to turn the page and see what happens next”.

Haspiel’s engaging art bursts at the seams with unbridled fun. There’s not a lot of shadowy nuances here; it’s all bombastic and straightforward. Haspiel, like so many of us, grew up with the language of comics and easily bends it to serve his imagination in order to provide something fresh and urgent."
