Unshelved strip for 4/19/2009

Mark Siegel

I'm a big fan of Mark Siegel's in two ways. I loved To Dance, the nonfiction graphic novel he illustrated for his wife. And Gene and I both love First Second Books, the graphic novel publisher for which he is the editorial director. They simply make some of our favorite comics in the world (many of which we have featured in the past). So when our mutual friend Gina Gagliano offered to convince him to draw a guest Unshelved Book Club we were thrilled. And when we saw the result we were blown away. And if Mark didn't strictly follow the directions in terms of length, well, it was easy to forgive him. I hope you enjoy his appreciation of Scott Pilgrim, of which we are also huge fans.
