We're happy to see all the good press covering Eric Drooker's graphic novel for Howl. The New Yorker's The Book Bench gives it a positive sweet mention, there's a feature in Nowness, an interview in 7x7, and Comics Alliance have a full spread of images. Eric Drooker's posted his introduction from the book on his own site as well as some useful press info there as well. The book is a tie-in with the upcoming Howl film one quarter of which is motion-animation of Drooker's work set to the poem. It only made sense to have a companion book that included stills.
