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!

Amelia Rules! 


Amelia Rules creator Jimmy Gownley and I were on a panel together at Comic-Con International in July. He handed me a copy of Amelia Rules #13 then, and I finally got a chance to read it now. It's as sensitive a treatment of the Iraq War as you could hope for, with a good measure of pre-teen romance thrown in. Check it out!
