A belated thank you to Paul Sizer for yesterday's guest Unshelved Book Club on Alison Bechdel's award-winning Fun Home. Paul was in the booth next to us at ALA
hawking promoting his new graphic novel Moped Army and his classic Little White Mouse and we were impressed enough to ask him to put together a guest strip for us. And were were even more impressed when he got it to us before we'd even unpacked.
That's two guest strips in three weeks. I'd better get to work making some non-guest strips.
Meanwhile we're resuming our popular "I'm the Internet/I'm a Library" sequence this week (here's the first ultra-popular batch). We originally wrote this as a single two-week sequence but we thought we'd break it up a little.
Comics, as we often point out, are a medium and not a genre. But even so most people associate them with fiction. So it's with mind-opening pleasure that we thank this week's sponsor G.T. Labs, publishers of nonfiction comics about science and scientists, written and drawn by some of the most talented people in comics today. We can't promise that they'll make kids interested in science, but it sure seems like a good start.
