Another nice review of Luke Howard's book, in Slate

Son-in-law Luke Howard's first book just got a nice review in Slate:

Howard wrote and drew Talk Dirty to Me, and it feels refreshing on several levels. It’s sexy without being vulgar, curious without being exploitative. It gives its heroine agency over her choices while still recognizing the precarious hold she has on her own twentysomething self. And Howard’s cartooning is endlessly inventive—the traditional six-panel page bends, slows down, speeds up, stops on a dime, and then rockets into a new surprising place. Howard has a remarkable knack for bringing abstractions to visceral life on the page, and he makes desire both comic and erotic with a quavering line and a vivid pink-and-blue palette.
