Blogcritics.com on Byrd of Paradise

A truly flattering review of HAWAIIAN DICK: BYRD OF PARADISE by author Mel Odom:

Thanks to old friend and voracious reader Chris Miller for passing it along.

Which actually reminds me of something. I've known Chris for about fifteen years, I suppose. We were both members of the Legends APA, which I joined while in college. Not long after finishing the first HAWAIIAN DICK book, I was talking to Chris at a Chicago area cookout during Wizard World, and he gave me his thoughts on the book. He enjoyed it, but noted that Byrd "didn't really do a whole lot." He just sort of fell into things as he went along.

Of course, that's kind of the essence of Byrd.

Chad Nevett and I used your anti-internet-criticism "rant" as a springboard for a discussion of the responsibilities of a critic.

The Sequart website is kind of glitchy today, and the direct link to the column won't fit in the comment box, but if you go to

www.sequart.org

you should see the relevant column.

Enjoy!

Ah, cool.

Thanks, Tim.

I recently discovered Hawaiian Dick through trades. I've bought the first two and love them. I love books that are about a setting that's never really been done in comics before. Hawaii in the fifties is much more interesting than New York any day. Such a rich world you've placed your character in. Thanks!

Thanks, Jeff!

There are always new readers out there. That's why it's nice to read reviews like this, which bring the spotlight back around.
