Comments from happy adopters :

“Using his character Hangboy, Pao creates a world of comical and violent images taking place in WWII. The art is superb and creative. It’s interesting to imagine what goes on in the artist’s mind when creating his world, but then again you won’t have to, you can see it right there on the page. I enjoy the spots of modern imagery interspersed throughout. Very cool art book.”

“I supported this project as a comic lover and as a US Army veteran, because I felt it was important to share a lighter perspective upon a gruesome yet important part of history. There is a time for everything, that includes laughing amidst chaos. The art, and more so the author perspective, makes this tome (yes it’s huge) a collectors item for comic and military history lovers alike.”

This book is absolutely brilliant! Pao’s diligent work will bring you smile after smile as you view each page. Every time I look at these prints I always find something new and amusing I had missed the previous times. This book is exceptional! Remember Hangboy’s motto, “Suffering is optional.”

“One of few artists that make me chuckle at every turn of the page. I get it, I’ve been there. I am there. Innovative and genius in simplicity. Evokes emotion in paculiar, silly and yet, theraputic fashion. Will reminds you at each turn of the page, you are not alone. I highly recommend picking up this beautifully formatted hardcover book. If not for an enthusiastic but adult conversation piece around the coffee table, each detailed vignette depicted by the artist reflects the professional world in a humorous, silly and thought provoking perspective. Put an exclamation in your collection. I can’t wait to see how the artist, evolves this character.”
