Bizarre Romance: Forbes Review

Robert Salkowitz interviewed Audrey and Eddie last week for Forbes magazine.

"What do you get when you combine best-selling author Audrey Niffenegger (The Time Traveler’s Wife) and legendary independent comics maker Eddie Campbell (From Hell, Alec)? Bizarre Romance! And in more ways than one.

"Campbell and Niffenegger tied the knot in 2015 after being introduced by Campbell’s daughter Hayley via mutual friend Neil Gaiman. Now their personal collaboration has yielded a literary team-up as well, with the March 20 release of Bizarre Romance(Abrams Comic Arts), an anthology that mashes up prose, comics and illustrated stories written by her, drawn by him."

Bizarre Romance: Forbidden Planet Review

Joe Gordon has just published a review on the Forbidden Planet blog. From his review:

"The stories rotate around love and loss and grief and joy, but there is a quite delightful playfulness running through them all, a deft lightness of touch, such that even the stories that have sadness in them are never maudlin or overly sentimental but leave you with a warm feeling."
