The Blog of Gene Luen Yang - Long Tail Kitty by Lark Pien
Long Tail Kitty by Lark Pien 


This is the most amazing kid's comic I've read in a long time, and I'm not just saying that because the author is the colorist of American Born Chinese. The artwork - gorgeous brown brushstrokes paired with wistful, cloud-like watercolors - is absolutely stunning. And the stories! The stories have this slightly nonsensical charm that'll knock the grumpies right outta ya.

Yes, Lark is a dear friend. But even if she were my worst enemy, even if she had punched me in the face and stolen my lunch money every day of my life, I'd still have to give this book props. My first-grader boy can't get enough of the fold-out page!

Check it out!

such a nice comic. I've red it for 2 times, even I'm not a kid =)

Don't hit me, Lark, no matter what Bora says. I'm fragile.

John of Jack, thanks for coming by! I'm not deliberately not claiming the Eternal Smile. I'm very proud of the work Derek and I did on that book. I'm just really, really lazy/forgetful/horrible about updating. I need to do that soon.

Thanks for the recommendation.

On your home page, on your list of comics, are you deliberately not claiming The Eternal Smile? Or has that just not been updated in awhile?

Cool endorsement. Will check it out. And Lark, if you're reading this, sounds like Gene has pretty much given you a free pass to punch him and steal his lunch money. Go for it!
