Here is a link to my review of Ross Mackintosh’s Seeds via Com.X Publishing at The Comics Journal.
The original submission was edited before posting. Here is the second-to-last paragraph as originally written:
As a first time effort, SEEDS reflects the rougher edges of storytelling and pacing audiences can expect from a beginning writer. At times, the gutters between panels are not seamless and thus the transitions can feel rushed, as if Mackintosh could have included more story or detail, developing the narrative further with additional sequences. Although they do not limit the experience or reduce Mackintosh’s emphasis, some readers may be left wanting more. Actually, if anything, the panels and their structure echo the authenticity of Mackintosh’s voice. These are a few minor elements with SEEDS, but nothing that detracts from the book’s impact.
I believe the edit and rewrite alters the voice and intent of my review slightly, which is why I believe posting the original here is warranted.
