May 1, 2023 CJ Standal was pulling double duty!
Rebirth of the Gangster Act 4: Inheritance
released to rave reviews:
A Booklife Editor's Pick, and a successful Kickstarter series acclaimed by Graphic Policy, Fanbase Press, Comic Booked, and more!
"The storytelling is tense, taut, and emotionally resonant...
[Romera and Standal] excel at depicting hard lives, addiction and desperation...
The conclusion proves satisfying, though new readers are advised to start with the first collection...
The knockout conclusion of a smart and humane graphic novel crime series."
"A graphic novel that steals your attention from start to finish."
―Write with Light Productions
"The artwork by Juan Romera did not disappoint.
The scenes provide easily interpretable body language and facial expressions...
Although printed in black and white, I can almost see the redness of the blood."
"Rebirth of a Gangster by CJ Standal is a book that is one part tragedy, one part redemption, and all parts gripping.
It's a dark graphic novel filled with twists, death, and intrigues, but with a surprisingly uplifting message.
Read as the jaw-dropping climax to the series, or as a gritty and fast-paced stand alone."
―International Review of Books
