Faith Erin Hicks, Raina Telgemeier & Calista Brill Discuss the World of Graphic Novels - Three of the biggest names in graphic novel publishing gather to talk about the industry, building an audience, and making books for a living
"The only reason I think it’s inaccurate to say that this is the golden age of graphic novels is that implies it isn’t going to keep getting better and better — and it is." - Calista Brill
Me, Raina & my editor Calista talk up a storm about graphic novels & other interesting things!
Check it out! And thanks to CBR for facilitating this conversation.

I was away for two weeks in California (Comic Con was awesome. Then we spent a week on the coast doing research for my next project…!) and while I was gone, the BOOK TRAILER for SISTERS dropped. Check it out! The book is in stores in less than three weeks…
11am-12pm Cartoon Art Museum Booth signing #1930 Sketches are $10 suggested donation.(Please note that books are not for sale at this signing. The main purpose is to raise funds for San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum – one of my favorites!)
xavierjones said:I'm an art teacher, and I like comics, but I have this fear about doing lessons involving superheroes, because... as of right now, I don't think all my different kinds of kids would have someone to identify with. plus all the sexualization and other no fun stuff that happens in comics is kind of unnerving. When I see characters like Falcon being Cap, and Lady Thor and Ms. Marvel, I almost start to think there is hope for minority readers to become future creators. How do we fix this?
Change the conversation away from Marvel and DC! We grew up with them dominating the comics discourse. No reason why that should hold true in 2014...
