Just want to wish the Comic Book Project a happy (although slightly belated) tenth anniversary! In case you're not familiar with it, the project is part of the Center for Educational Pathways and promotes literacy and social awareness by publishing kids' creative comic endeavors. Visit www.edpath.org to learn more, and check out the center's Facebook page! Congrats, Comic Book Project, founder Dr. Michael Bitz, and all the kids and adults involved with this exceptional program.

New York City Comic Con was great. Here are some cool highlights... :)
With the super-cool and brilliant storyteller Jane Yolen
With Jimmy Gownley of Amelia Rules! fame
With Peter Kuper, of contemporary Spy vs. Spy and retold Kafka graphic novel awesomeness
with Gus Fink (aka, Dr. Krinkles), one of my favorite new artist i met. here's a link to his website. :)
Gus' significant other, Emi Boz, was also really impressive. here's a link to her website.
Thank you to everyone, with special outs to John Shableski of Diamond Comic Books, John Hogan of graphicnovelreporter.com, Maureen Bakis (awesome graphic novel teacher extraordinaire), and First Second Books, especially Gina Gagliano.
