Eric Shanower is the Eisner Award-winning and New York Times best selling cartoonist of Age of Bronze, a graphic novel retelling of the Trojan War. Age of Bronze is a work in progress. Four volumes have been published and the story is more than one-third complete. When finished, Age of Bronze will tell the entire story of the legendary war at Troy, weaving into one the many tellings and permutations of the story throughout the centuries.As a child, Shanower fell in love with the Oz books by L. Frank Baum and their illustrations by John R. Neill. Shanower decided to write and illustrate his own Oz books someday. Goal accomplished. Shanower's long list of contributions to the world of L.

His comics have been published around the world and include such works as his Oz graphic novel series (currently collected as Adventures in Oz), An Accidental Death with writer Ed Brubaker, The Elsewhere Prince with writers Moebius and R-JM Lofficier, and the introductions to Harlan Ellison's Dream Corridor.

I actually liked this v...

Nou, het is een 'Hermetische Garage' boek maar de tekiningen worden niet getekend door Moebius (Jean Giraud). Dat zou ketterij moeten zijn. Maar in feit, werkt het goed. Moebius was wel erbij vertrokken, neem ik aan, omdat hij de schrijfcredits met een andere schijver (Lofficier) deelt. Het hele b...

Poor storytelling, too much message-sending, bland characters, unbelievable and predictable settings and situations, unreadable short stories that no teen will find appealing. Sorry, I did not enjoy this at all and I don't think teens will either.

I thought it was way too mired in politics. I hate politics. I don't see Wonder Woman as a woman of rhetoric, but a woman of actions which s...
