Another Awesome Review for Lost Cactus!

Back in early October, I exhibited my Lost Cactus comic strip at the Alternative Press Expo in San Jose, California. While there, I met many talented artists and writers as well as a number of bloggers and reporters who came to see the show. One such blogger, Dore' Ripley, who writes for the “Graphic Novel Reporter” wrote some wonderful comments on Lost Cactus in her article on APE 2016:

“A newcomer to APE was John Hopkins and his award-winning Lost Cactus strip (www.lostcactus.com), which presents comics that are politically astute without preaching and offer a slice of life from inside the lab. What about the $500 Pentagon hammer, secret warehouses ala Raiders of the Lost Ark, clones and all those secret experiments? The four-color artwork and storytelling reminded this reader of Walt Kelly’sPogo, engaging in laboratory satire poking fun at the bureaucratic money pit of certain government entities.”

I cannot thank her enough for the kind words she wrote about Lost Cactus. As a comic strip artist, it’s extremely humbling simply being mentioned in the same sentence with Walt Kelly and Pogo. To read her full article, click here.
