Hey wow! Critic Nathan Wilson at Graphic Novel Reporter just selected Liar's Kiss as one of the Best Graphic Novels of 2011! (You have to scroll down a bit in that link.) He also says the book "combines all the flavors of a classic Bogart film with the soulless debauchery of a Jim Thompson novel," which might be my favorite pull-quote yet. Thanks, Nathan!
(P.S. Hope to see any NYC-based folks at the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival in a couple hours!)
