Praise for TRISH TRASH

Kirkus

“Abel’s art is sprawling and expressive, working with background artist Roberts and colorist Walter to fill each oversized page with eye-catching details. Her worldbuilding is complex …”

—Kirkus

Publishers Weekly

“Abel (La Perdida) designs a complex world at the intersection of class (and planetary) exploitation, spectator sports, and xenophobia without allowing the setting to become overly complicated.”

—PW

Praise for OUT ON THE WIRE

LA Times

“A boundary-pushing comic, a love letter from one blossoming new media to another…Out on the Wire is a terrific book for radio superfans and would-be producers, a niche audience that isn’t so niche anymore.”

—Los Angeles Times

Entertainment Weekly

“With comics and podcasts both on the rise, it’s a perfect time for a media collision: Abel investigates modern narrative radio and its stars.”

Entertainment Weekly

Library Journal

“Abel (La Perdida) has performed a metamasterpiece by reporting with visual finesse and detail the complicated and sometimes precarious process behind public radio shows such as Radiolab and This American Life… Indispensible for communications collections and a valuable asset for anyone considering a career in media.”

—Library Journal [starred]

Praise for DRAWING WORDS AND WRITING PICTURES

Booklist

“Lively, sophisticated, and comprehensive, Abel and Madden’s course in visual storytelling covers every narrative and graphic element, from drawing figures and character development to panel transitions, composition, lettering, depicting action, and penciling and inking techniques. Technically precise, zippy, and inspiring, this is an outstanding teaching book.”

―Donna Seaman, Booklist

Kirkus

“Smartly designed and easy to understand, Abel and Madden’s text is an edifying course in creating comics … A valuable resource for all interested in the field and a natural companion to Scott McCloud’s quintessential texts Understanding Comics and Reinventing Comics. (appendices, index, bibliography) (Nonfiction. YA & adult)”

―Kirkus Reviews

Voya

“The text, designed for classroom use by teachers or as an individual tutorial, comes with further reading suggestions, homework assignments, and extra credit projects at the end of each lesson … This book is not designed to teach would-be artists how to draw but how to write and give dimension to drawings through penciling strategies, lettering techniques, and inking with pens or brushes. Students looking to create their own mini comics for publication will welcome the design pointers.”

―Laura Panter, VOYA
