Review: Fanboy Comics Covers Clown

fanboy-comics

Fanboy Comics wrote a wonderful review for “Clown”.

“James Maddox wrote a wonderful book that combines much of what could be, with more than a sprinkle of what is… Clown is one of the best books I’ve had in a while.” — JC Ciesielski, FanBoy Comics.

On a personal note, I’m so happy someone actually caught the Transmet reference. I thought that one was going to just float away.

Comic Bastards have posted their fantastic 5/5 review of DEAD#3!

“Why someone like Image, IDW or Dark Horse hasn’t picked this series up is beyond me. Its leaps and bounds better than 90% of the comics published monthly.” – Dustin Cabeal

Review: Regeeken Spotlights Clown

Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 10.46.48 AM

Regeeken gives “Clown” a great article on the mechanics of the story and emotion.

Great stories, creative art and making that personal connection to the reader are what every writer and artist strives for and in my opinion this book did all of that.”

Check out this great 5/5 review!

Self-Pub Article on Gail Simone’s Comics Survival Kit

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 11.42.45 AMGail Simone officially launched her Comics Survival Kit on Tumblr!
This thing has great articles by the best creators in the industry, including one by me on self-publishing! (I think that’s a bit “whoo-hoo!” worthy.)

If you’re aspiring comic creator, definitely give this thing a read, and keep up with any new updates.

A big thanks to Gail for the opportunity to talk comics, and a big thanks to my comic partner in crime Eric Watkins for putting us in the same room so I could hand her some of my books to read in the first place.

Nerds Unchained posted a great review of Clown on their site!

“Maddox, in a very short story, creates a fully defined character with a point of view, and ends his tale with enough laid out that it compels, but with plenty to think about after its conclusion.”
