The Late Child and Other Animals has been receiving some wonderful press and reviews and making its way onto some excellent “Best of 2014”  Lists. Here are a sample.

Artillery Magazine.  A review by Glenn Harcourt

“In all, this is a quite extraordinary piece of work. It sweeps us flawlessly along from a hillside above Portsmouth burning in the Blitz to a Parisian café terrace at the end of the turbulent ’60s. Wonderfully conceived and skillfully executed, it holds its own both as literary and as graphic art ” Glenn Harcourt

7 Miles a Second

My color work for “7 Miles a Second” under the Fantagraphics imprint was nominated for an 2014 Eisner award in the category Best Painter/Multimedia Artist (interior art). So proud to be included in this talented field.

“7 Miles a Second” has been getting a good response, particularly gratifying is its arrival at number 5 on the New York Times Best Sellers Hardcover Graphic Book List

Thanks you to all of you who have purchased this book.

“7 Miles a Second” has been reviewed in a featured article by the LA Times. In his article “Revisiting David Wojnarowicz’s ‘7 Miles a Second'”, David L. Ulin chooses not to comment on James Romberger’s art on way or the other, or to mention me as a co-author, and one senses more than a little hostility to the actual medium of comics in his otherwise glowing review. However, there is a nice full page image and we are delighted that the book will be brought to the attention of a greater audience.

It’s been difficult at times, emotionally, to continue to revisit a good friend’s death and have it in your life all the time,” says Marguerite Van Cook, who, with her husband, James Romberger, created the graphic memoir 7 Miles a Second (Feb., Fantagraphics), about their friend, the late artist David Wojnarowicz.
