"Sharp and incisive ... Even though the book is focused squarely on Powell's life, he spares the reader from excessive navel gazing along the way. He seems to have a better idea of when to share and when to pull away and let the pictures do the talking, demonstrating an overall more mature approach to his work. ... If Powell keeps creating material this good, I'll definitely be along for the ride." -- Marc Mason, Comics Waiting Room "...proves that comics can mimic having a beat or pulse using static images the way writers and poets can with words. Also, all of the stories, to one extent or another, are connected by Powell's profession of working with adults who have developmental disabilities. That serves to humanize the story, giving them an earthiness these stories need whenever Powell has flown off into his internal world of self-examination. His intricate art, a kind of ornate 'indie style,' makes Please Release a catchy EP of ear candy for the eyes and mind of the curious reader."-- Leroy Douresseaux, Comic Book Bin Please Release collects four autobiographical stories, each linked by a series of open questions on work, mental disorders, aging, punk rock, developmental disabilities, horror movies, and a little unrequited love to boot. Recognized for his publications Tiny Giants and It Disappears, as well as his signature dream-like, luscious, and meticulous illustrations (reminiscent of Craig Thompson and Farel Dalrymple), this is Nate Powell's most direct and concrete work to date -- guaranteed to engage your brain and dazzle your senses.
