Charles Hatfield on By This Shall You Know Him

Posted on May 17, 2013 in Blog


Author and academic Charles Hatfield (Alternative Comics, and Hand of Fire: The Comics Art of Jack Kirby University Press of Mississippi, 2005 and 2012) has reviewed By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse Jacobs (9780986873980 | May 2012 | $15.00 | Trade Paper).

“An art comics creation myth, cosmic, disturbing, and beautifully rendered in ice-blue and contrasting purples, with a style that welds the lovely to the grotesque…By This Shall You Know Him is (further) proof that fantasy in comics need not be hollow, generic, or ingratiating. It can be troubling instead. An inspired comic!” — Charles Hatfield
