New York Journal of Books Reviews "Kenk: A Graphic Portrait" by Richard Poplak

Reviewer Kim Nayyer states, "The impressive visual presentation and the tight, captivating narrative leave the reader with a sense of having gotten to know this man—even to understand him—while at the same time despising his crimes".
Dec. 6, 2011 - PRLog -- New York Journal of Books reviewer Kim Nayyer commends Richard Poplak in her review, "Kenk: A Graphic Portrait is an utterly captivating, highly readable, and slightly unsettling comic book. Or is it a piece of graphic long-form journalism? Or perhaps a static, stylized arrangement of documentary footage? Even a kaleidoscopic collage of multimedia, peppered with interview transcription and narrative commentary?"

Ms. Nayyer also says in her review, "Indeed, there are moments where the reader will feel sympathy with a man who also makes us angry—whom we know will be found guilty of substantial property theft. This leads to an impression of near-betrayal when the reader approaches the end of the book and understands Kenk’s total disregard for the property rights of others".
