ABOVE THE DREAMLESS DEAD: World War I in Poetry and Comics edited by Chris Duffy
BCCB, November 2014 issue: 3rd STARRED REVIEW!
«“Bring[s]the work of Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, and their peers to a new audience with vivid visual interpretations are over a score of comic-book artists (many of whom might be familiar to mature graphic-novel readers) who interpret and sometimes expand on the original work.”

FABLE COMICS edited by Chris Duffy
GeekMom, October 8, 2014: BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT!
“Three years ago, First Second’s gorgeous Nursery Rhyme Comics knocked my socks off. The award-winning graphic novel imprint followed that tome with the equally delightful Fairy Tale Comics, and now I’m thrilled to learn that they’ve got a new collection in the works:Fable Comics.”

IN REAL LIFE by Cory Doctorow, illus. by Jen Wang
BCCB, November 2014 issue
“Lush, hyper-saturated colors of the game environment contrast elegantly with the muted but complementary shades used to represent the real world.”

LA Times Hero Complex, October 14, 2014: READ IT HERE!
“I hope [readers] have that irreducible, inchoate aesthetic experience that you get from being moved by a piece of art, and I hope that they come away with a lot more questions than answers about the relationship between the Global South and the Global North, between rich and poor, between China and the West. And that they also reconsider whether or not there is a meaningful distinction between virtual worlds and real life. Part of the point of that title is that games are real life, because you are really alive when you are playing a game, just like you’re really alive when you’re not playing a game.”

Tor.com, September 30, 2014: “Con/Game” Short Story
“From acclaimed teen author Cory Doctorow and rising star cartoonist Jen Wang, Con/Game is an original comic story set in the world of Doctorow and Wang's In Real Life, a sensitive, thoughtful look at adolescence, gaming, poverty, and culture-clash.”

Comic Book Resources, October 20, 2014: READ IT HERE!
“Doctorow and Wang have created a socially relevant, heartfelt and emotionally engaging story about a female gamer that will likely inspire and encourage generations of awesome girls.”

Kindle Daily Post, October 14, 2014: AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR INTERVIEW!
“The thing I'm most proud of is that someone as talented as Jen created such beautiful work starting from my source material. It's a very curious experience to have your name on something that you can feel unabashedly proud of, without feeling boastful. She took my thing and made something awesome out of it. That's an amazing honor.”

Mental Floss, October 16, 2014: “The Most Interesting Comics of the Week
“We've seen a lot of comics that bring video game logic (extra lives, fighting “bosses”, etc.) into real life scenarios, but when Doctorow and Wang are depicting the gameplay of Coarsegold they do the opposite—they bring constructs of real life (one-on-one conversations) and of comic books (stylized fight scenes) into the video game environment.”

THE RISE OF AURORA WEST by Paul Pope and J.T. Petty, illus. by David Rubín
BoingBoing, October 8, 2014: AUTHOR ESSAY!
“The monsters are the classic grotesqueries we've seen in the darkest of fairy tales, Hieronymus Bosch triptychs, and Picasso paintings.”

THE ZOO BOX by Ariel Cohn, illus. by Aron Nels Steinke
BCCB, November 2014 issue
“Erika and Patrick really should know better, but who can resist a zebra-striped box when you are home alone? [...] An outrageous adventure.”


I’m thrilled to introduce a guest pet this week! This playful kitty belongs to our German subagent Anne Kästner at Literarische Agentur Silke Weniger.

HOW IT WENT DOWN by Kekla Magoon
BCCB, November 2014 issue
“Absorbing and complex […] An effective treatment of the way individual and media narratives have their own momentum independent of the truth.”

A BED FOR KITTY by Yasime Surovec
BCCB, November 2014 issue
“This is cat and kid reduced to their simple essence—the cat is sweet and completely unbiddable, and the kid wants to delight her beloved pet.”

New York Times, October 17, 2014: READ IT HERE!
“There is a whimsical, fairy-tale feeling to the art, which is reminiscent of Johnny Gruelle’s classic Raggedy Ann books…Captivating.”

STAR STUFF by Stephanie Roth Sisson
Publishers Weekly, October 17, 2014 issue
“A broader message about the role wonder plays in innovation resonates throughout this story, which concludes with extensive biographical and source notes.”
