Book Reviews

Unshelved Book Club

In this week's Unshelved Book Club you'll find books about the tension between traditional values and modernity, why writers knit, moonshine, raising a kid who doesn't conform to gender norms, a hack journalist, rejected comics from The New Yorker, a master bank robber, and one that's an illustrated prose poem.

New Shirts

Fanperson Fanperson

We already announced Without Rockets It's Just Science, and now we can reveal our two other new shirts, Fanperson and Comedy & Tragedy, fresh from their debuts at ALA and Comic Con International. All three are now available for purchase only at the Unshelved store.

Bon Voyage To Bill

Tomorrow, Tuesday, July 29, 2014, my family will hop into Applejack, our faithful Chevy Suburban, hitch up Cuddles, our Shadow Cruiser S290DBS, and start driving. We won't return to Seattle until September 1, 2015. You can follow my adventures on my blog and my Twitter feed. If I'm passing through your town you might be able to hire me to teach a class on cartooning at your library.

Wish me luck!

P.S. What with recovering from Comic Con and preparing for the trip, things are a little hectic around here. So we're running some golden oldie strips this week and will probably do so again sometime in August.
