Fox Bunny Funny 


Top Shelf Comix has recently published Fox Bunny Funny , my friend Andy Hartzell's latest graphic novel. Fox Bunny Funny is completely wordless and utterly engrossing. It's one of those stories that can be read in many, many different ways. The story is determined almost as much by what the reader brings to the table as what the author has put on the page.

Good As Lily 


This entry is months late, but in case you haven't heard, comics wunderkind Derek Kirk Kim and master illustrator Jesse Hamm have released their latest work, Good As Lily from Minx. Minx is line of graphic novels from DC Comics targeted at teenage girls, but enjoyed by all age groups and both genders. Good As Lily is my favorite so far, but I have to admit I'm biased because both Derek and Jesse are good buddies.

Check out an excerpt in New York Magazine!
