Hi all, not a lot to report but I did want to say THANKS for coming out to the bookstore tour events and TCAF. It was great meeting and/or catching up with you guys! It’s nice to meet the mysterious “readers” we’re always talking about. And to put an IRL face to an Twitter handle!

SuperMutant Magic Academy is #10 on the NYT Bestsellers List this week! This is cool! My mom is impressed!

What’s next? CAKE (Chicago), ELCAF (London, England), ALA (SF), San Diego Comic-Con, and Autoptic. I post all the specifics on my website. And, like, all my other places online. I dunno. You know how to use the internet.

Upcoming Book News

Feb 12th, 2015

Whoa, lots of book news lately. HERE IS SOME MORE!

I got a copy of the SuperMutant Magic Academy book today! It’s pretty thick and satisfying to hold. Cool. Drawn and Quarterly wrote a bit about it here and included some interior pics. I will be touring the CRAP out of this book this year. So watch the News/Events space (or my tumblr or twitter) for that forthcoming info.

ALSO! You have only a few more days to pre-order a Frontier subscription from Youth in Decline. What’s Frontier? It’s a series of cute, 30-page, beautifully-produced books. Each book is the work of a single creator. Mine comes out in April! But first I’ve got to draw it. I’ve done one page thus far. Oops.

Frontier #7: Jillian Tamaki: April 2015
Our first issue of the year features a brand new comic by the extremely talented illustrator and cartoonist, Jillian Tamaki. Her story for Frontier is called “SexCoven” and revolves around cults, file-sharing on the early internet, and sex. The 32 page issue will be Jillian’s longest solo authored comic to date.

It feels almost unbelievable to write, but This One Summer, which I co-created with my cousin Mariko Tamaki, won a Caldecott honour and a Printz Award.

Thanks to librarians, for these honours and, just, generally. To be perfectly honest, Mariko and I never thought we were making YA books when we started with SKIM. It was our publishers and librarians who connected us with this wonderful audience. Thank-you for that. <3
