Kirkus book reviews proudly claims to be the "world's toughest book critics." It's for that reason that I'm so excited that Marathon by Boaz Yakin and I has recently been awarded their highest honor…the Kirkus star review.
Infurnari fills patchwork panels with glimpses of rugged faces, slashing swords and jumbles of martial action with “KLAK” “CHK!” sound effects. Yakin draws from ancient historical and legendary sources but adds invented incidents to round out Eucles’ character and elevated dialogue to heighten the epic atmosphere: “The gods have laid a feast both bitter and sweet before me.”
Marathon hits bookstores and comics retailers June 19th.
