While we are still in the process of shipping out kickstarter incentives and contributor comp copies of the kaBOOMbox Vol.1 anthology, we were able to have a few on hand with us at Heroes Con a few weekends back. George Marston from Newsarama.com picked one up and was kind enough to review it. Here’s what he had to say.
"KaBOOMbox, Vol. 1 (Published by Brand New Nostalgia; Review by George Marston; ‘Rama Rating: 10 out of 10): In a way, it’s hard to review a book like KaBOOMbox Vol. 1. It’s not really a story, or a collection of stories, so much as a yearbook of some of the indie comics world’s brightest up and comers. With contributions from too many amazing creators to name them all, KaBOOMbox is a perfect starting point for anyone looking to break out of the mainstream scene. Typically excellent pieces from names like Tradd Moore, Toby Cypress and Ming Doyle anchor bigger surprises from Andrew MacLean, Joe Querio, and Jorge Coelho, and even that is only scratching the surface. With not a dud in almost 100 pages, KaBOOMbox, Vol. 1 is a perfect window into the zeitgeist of a burgeoning corner of the indie publishing scene.” (link)
A lot of love and hard work went into that book, so I’m glad it shows through. And as soon as we can get the books into the hands of all the people who helped make it (Hold tight, folks. They’re coming.), we’ll be offering copies for sale in the OOSA Store.
Much Newsarama love for KaBOOMbox. Available for purchase online… soonish.Source: outofsteparts
