Superb Story-telling Feb 23, 2008

Definitely Impressed! Jun 16, 2006
Although I was not familiar with any of Dan Dougherty's work, I found this book quite impressive. From the first pages, I was hooked! I read this novel in one sitting! I couldn't put it down! Dougherty's way of overlapping and interlacing stories in the past and present, while keeping the plot seemingly complex was very enthralling! A suprise awaited every turn of the page! And the artwork was amazing! Certain scenes still come back in thrilling detail, capturing the intensity of the story! I would definitely recommend purchasing this book, as well as anything Dan Dougherty might come up with next!
Loved It! Jun 15, 2006
I found this book at a local Borders and started flipping through it. In the end, I decided to take it home and finish reading it because the first few pages entranced me so. I was not disappointed. This graphic novel is well-written, well-drawn, and the story will really stick to your ribs like a thick, tasty gravy. Can't wait for more from Dougherty!
A legend of legends, a tale of tales Mar 20, 2006
A book of rock and roll taken to mythic and other-wordly proportions...Cyclone Bill and the Tall Tales speaks to our obsession with music and the superhero status to which we elevate our musical mentors and favorite acts. An engaging read and a visual treat, Dougherty explodes on the scene with this powerful first published work.
