A devilish review for volume two...
One of the unique things about not having a budget for advertising, is that comics creators rely mostly on reviews, word of mouth & inexpensive self promotion... like this blog for example. My NBM Graphic Novel Miniseries, "Lucifer's Garden of Verses" has had the good fortune of being reviewed several times over the last couple of years by a variety of terrific Comics review sites. Copies of the books were forwarded to everyone from the New York Times to Modern Bride, but getting my funnybooks read by mainstream critics has never come easy to me. Below you'll find the remaining active links to online reviews of Lucifer's Garden volumes 1, 3 & 4... volume 2: Darlin' Niki has never once been written about in three years until now. I always felt the book was kind of an orphan in the wild... the only Satanic cartoon musical for kids that I can recall ever seeing in stores and libraries. It managed to win two of the very first Glyph prizes, a much respected award for Black themed comics and their creators, an honor that I'll appreciate forever. But not one solitary review for my girl Niki. So, thanks to all of those critics who took the time to take notice of the series. You probably have no idea how dependent on you are "independent" creators like myself.
