I picked this up, somewhat randomly, on a recommendation from a friend. I do like graphic novels and comix, though not "mainstream" type comic books. My friend suggested I pick this up as it is an unusual topic, with great art and a solid story. I am very happy I did so.

The Amazon review, above, calls this a "labor of love", and you can see that from every aspect of this book. The physical book itself is weighty, with high-quality glossy paper and screaming visuals. The cover even has white-on-white paint that glows in the dark, representing the spirits. For a medium-length story in a softcover, it just feels like more.

Artwork is one of my biggest areas of concern when I'm looking at a graphic novel. While classics like Watchmen and Sandman early volumes also have places of honor on my shelf, the art / layout / coloring in those books are extremely dated, and it shows. The wonderful thing about a graphic novel is that it's GRAPHIC - you get two mediums with which to tell your story! If the art or coloring isn't simpatico with the emotions the author is trying to evoke, it just won't... work.

In Red Light Properties, the art and coloring are wonderful. The artist / author renders natural Florida with soft blues and white birds - making the Floridian denizens stand out in sharp contrast.

There are no wasp-wasted fashion models, nor are there any barrel-chested beefcakes. Florid, angry colors splash over the pages, detailing unattractive people and horrifically terrible architecture. This, in no way, is a dig at the art - it's perfect! Real people have ugly expressions, and wear ugly clothes.

The other reviews on her nail it, so I will keep this pretty short. What I love about Red Light Properties is the grittiness and imperfection in the characters. Jude spends much of his time barely hanging on to the world around him while simultaneously producing amazing work in the paranormal.

The artwork is fantastic, the story and characters are impeccable, and I can't wait to see what else is produced in the Red Light Properties world.

Do yourself a favor and dive in. Dan Goldman's work is honest and fascinating.

First off, I'm a very biased reviewer. Dan's my brother and I've seen drafts of this book going back to its conception. That said, he's managed to surprise those of us who've seen it evolve in several digital forms (look at the book cover in the dark for one example).

RED LIGHT PROPERTIES is a stunner of a book, full of design flair but grounded with an indie filmmaker's focus on taut drama and quiet moments. It focuses on the struggles of a Miami real estate brokerage that works to flip haunted houses, and if there are any remaining "tenants" there, they'll exorcize them and give the property a clean bill of psychic health.

You don't want to like the characters: Jude's dissheveled, distant to his family and full of gas; his wife's Ceci comes across as a business-minded shrew; his assistant Zoya could easily be a Russian Lolita; and Rhoda is a wisecracking South Florida real estate agent, like half of my friends' moms growing up. And if Dan had let them be the cardboard cutouts you so often find in comics (and some movies) these days, I wouldn't have liked them.

But he does fill them out, lets them breathe, lets you see the victories that are long behind them and the scars of the fights they've just had... it's a family drama and a trainwreck, but one you can't stop watching. As with HBO's SIX FEET UNDER or films like THE ICE STORM, you want to get to know everyone and to see them and their arguments through. Along the way, he keeps both the reader and the cast sweating as to whether the company will hang on to its mortgage, whether Jude will be able to keep it together enough to do his Work, and whether it's all worth it.

All in all, a great single-volume read, and with a new book due this fall, there's plenty more to come.

I read it last night. It was rather much a couldn't, didn't want to put it down situation. I stayed up way past my bedtime, until after 11 o'clock to finish it. The conceit of the book I think is brilliant, and made moreso by the way Dan tied in the housing meltdown (read = current events) to give it relevance.

I was by turns fascinated, repulsed by and sympathetic, hostile toward the characters, to wit: I feel bad for Jude, whom by the way ought to be played by Bobcat Goldthwaite in the film version; Ceci bugged me and perhaps that's what she's supposed to do, but I'll cut her some slack given whom she's married to; Zoya is interesting and I want to see how her gifts evolve. Rhoda is annoying as hell but cracked me up,but please no more drawings of her half-naked. These are some sad sacks making their way in the world the best they can.

The art is weird and I ilke it! I want one of the shirts with the RLP logo and tagline on it.
