Pre-release reviews have been very strong:
“The unique art style, combined with the well developed story continuing through the chapters makes this a book you’ll read in one sitting, but likely go back to savor in time.” – Newsarama
“Great storytelling… the dialogue, and descriptions of the scenes, everything flows perfectly with this style of story. On top of all of that we also have a great team of artists… once again another great anthology piece put out there by BOOM! Studios.” – Project Fanboy
“After reading Chris’ ZOMBIE TALES and SALEM, you know this guy has tapped into the essence of the horror and fantasy genres,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Mark Waid. “But what separates Chris from other people with that ability is that he’s a great professional writer, who brings high quality stories to whatever medium or genre he happens to be writing for.”
Chris Morgan and SALEM: QUEEN OF THORNS was featured on G4TV during Comic-Con International. BOOM! recently posted a behind the scenes footage to their website here: http://blog.boom-studios.net/2008/08/chris-morgan-brought-g4-to-boom/
