STRANGE EGGS review and interview at Nickelpig

We at Nickelpig Media got our sullied little meat-grabbers on an advance copy of Strange Eggs, SLG Publishing's latest comic foray. What greeted us inside this 48 page anthology were some of the best graphic stories we've seen in print.

When comic aficionados hear "anthology," Dark Horse's Sandman: Endless Nights inevitably comes to mind. After all, it was one of the most successful comics in recent years. But Chris Reilly, Ben Towle, and Steve Alhquist have put together an all-together different anthology. One that doesn't get weighed down in excess. One that walks the edge because it furthers the story, not because it's a sure bet for titillating teens.

Strange Eggs is a smart, well-crafted volume. It contains over a dozen vignettes that vary in humor from cute to dark, and cover topics as innocuous as public access television, and as controversial as abortion. We were thoroughly entertained from page one on.

The book debuts May 25th. But in the meantime, we have a little treat for you. I had the opportunity to talk with Chris, Ben, and Steve. The following is our exchange: to read the interview go to: Posted by Hello
