Tori Amos' Comic Book Tattoo Reviewed

has a sparkling review
Of Tori Amos' Comic Book Tattoo. This is the massive 12-inch anthology that everyone's been talking about. I have a 15-page story with John Ney Rieber and letters by Kristyn Ferretti. I wasn't sure if my contribution was any good, But it blew my mind when I saw it at SDCC in the flesh, with that size and paper. It's a really gorgeous product all around.




"..but the creators of this compilation really won my heart when they had Ryan Kelly illustrate Winter, my absolute favorite Tori song. John Ney Rieber spins a magical-realist story that really lets Kelly do a little bit of each thing he does best—impossibly detailed architecture, closeups on people with broken hearts–and then allows him a two-page spread to change the world entirely."
-Sarah Jaffe

You can order the book on Amazon

Wow, this week I passed over Comic Book Tattoo in order to pick up Zot, but next week I'll be grabbing CBT. Too much great work by too many great artists and writers...it looks beautiful.

It's all true. Your story is one of my favorites...the artwork is beautiful!

I'm bringing the book into work tomorrow for all the designers to gawk at.
