ellen's new graphic novel!

Hooray, Ellen! This is Ellen Lindner and me modeling her lovely new book in Gosh! Comics, Little Rock Nine, a graphic novel about the historic 1957 school desegregation in Little Rock, Arkansas. The pages look crisp and well-drawn and I'm going to dive in right now and read it, very exciting! (Here's the link if you live in the USA.)



My Time Management (Super) Fairy will only let me spend 59 seconds posting anything more, so here are a couple more pictures from today, our fabulous comics salon with Ellen and Dave O'Connell and the Super Fairy reading Ellen's book at the British Library. We saw an amazing exhibition there, The Ramayana: Love and Valour in India's Great Epic, of more than 120 17th-century manuscript paintings. I absolutely adored their detail, bright colours and flat perspectives, almost like fantastic comics, in fact. If you're in London, you are crazy if you miss this exhibition, which runs until 14 Sept.
