Praise For One Trick Pony…
"Hale imbues his latest with pathos, action, and perfectly timed moments of comedy, but it’s the imaginative landscape, spot-on visual pacing, and confident line work that make this adventure tale really zing."
"The aliens themselves are visu-ally exceptional—huge, gluttonous, and oozing privilege in both their actions and their physical presentations."
"Set in a land that blends Stone Age elements and highly advanced technology, this graphic novel adventure features the same mix of humor and derring-do that makes Hale’s “Hazardous Tales” so popular."
"Hale blends adventure, aliens, an apocalyptic future, and folklore into an easy-to-read stand-alone."
" The story combines an exciting science fiction plot with down-to-earth teenage characters...The real allure to the work is the use of different kinds of lines used to build textures, provide atmosphere, and portray characters."
"With an engaging, racially diverse cast this high-stakes epic adventure should have wide appeal...Hale shepherds this complex narrative with the same sure hand as his graphic novel series of real stories from history."
"Hale’s illustrations are textured and visually move the story forward, while his original storyline effortlessly combines aliens, adventure, and apocalyptic fun."
"While beautifully concise, it still manages to squeeze in loads of suspense, chills (though nothing too nightmare-inducing), action and entertaining character dynamics — all within a refreshingly original take on post-apocalyptic hellscapes."
