Reviews

"The Twilight Man" is a wonderfully illustrated, emotional and enlightening story that authentically captures a complicated man and his Hollywood legacy."-- "THE MERCURY"
"TWILIGHT MAN pulls back the curtain on Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling." - The Hollywood Reporter A perceptive take, which celebrates and illuminates one of early television's true artists. - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Twilight Man is a respectful but clear-eyed tribute to one of the most important and influential dramatists of the 20th century. - Alan Brennert, Nebula Award Winner Having experienced The Twilight Zone and Playhouse 90 first hand, I fancied myself as pretty clued in to the Rod Serling legacy, but I admit I learned a lot from Koren Shadmi's unexpectedly poignant and cleverly observed graphic novel treatment of Serling's life and career. It's a unique take on the lasting work of a complicated man who found his greatest success when coding the messages of his socially conscious narratives into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination - JOE DANTE "Very hard to put this graphic novel down ... To learn all about [Serling] and the legacy he left behind was a true joy." - GOOD MEN PROJECT Beautifully illustrated. - The Twilight Zone Podcast "Poignant, intensely researched and crisply illustrated." - DEADLINE "Koren Shadmi expertly takes us into a dimension of incredible imagination. The life of Rod Serling is a great American story of determination and invention - and the perfect stuff of a graphic novel." - David Kushner, Author of Masters of Doom-- "THE MERCURY"
