THE BUZZ:

“Some of the sharpest slices of life the medium has ever seen. Highly recommended” -Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, Runaways, Y: The Last Man)

“You’re going to want this one. Trust me.” – Warren Ellis

“Wood and Kelly set out to show nothing less than how Megan herself gets shaped by each new city, and by the particular choices — good and bad — she makes there… But Local’s creators are more concerned with life than with life lessons, and because they assiduously avoid judging Megan, you probably won’t either.”-NPR

“Brian Wood is the master of the single-issue comic… He’s found his artistic match in Ryan Kelly, and together they’ve created one of the most complete portraits of a person that I’ve read not just in comics, but anywhere.” -BUST Magazine

“Wood ingeniously sifts through the grit of the ugliest human emotions and depicts relationships that rustle them to the surface. Local’s vignettes are buoyed by [artist] Ryan Kelly’s sense of movement and thick painterly lines.” -Playboy.com

“If you want to know what a quality indie looks like read [Local]… One of the best ongoing indie comics of the last 3 years” -Blair Bulter, Fresh Ink

“A rare and enviable thing… painfully easy to enjoy.” -Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman)

“The coolest short film never shown on the IFC or Sundance Channel.” – Sequential Tart

“Big ups to Wood and Kelly. They’re working in some kind of magical synchronicity, they’ve got a concept the biz has never seen, and they’re at the forefront of the movement to revitalize the standalone issue in comics…” – Aint it Cool News
