Aaron Renier

Out guest cartoonist today is Aaron Renier. His first graphic novel, the all-ages Spiral Bound, was my favorite book from the 2005 Comic Con. (Alex Robinson was signing my copy of Box Office Poison when he booktalked it to me (Aaron was sitting quietly beside him.)) When Aaron's follow up book, last year's magical pirate adventure The Unsinkable Walker Bean arrived in the mail, my daughter and I put aside the books we were reading together and tore through it. It's excellent, and reminds me of the work of my favorite French comics writers (Sfar, Trondheim, Blain). And now he's written a comic for US! I'm completely honored.

Please help me thank Aaron for the excellent homage to Roald Dahl's Matilda (and his critique of eBooks) by checking out both of his books, if you haven't already.

And don't forget, you're welcome to print out his comic to post it in your library.
