San Diego Comic Con is almost here!

San Diego Comic Con is almost here!

It was so hard not being at Comic Con last year! But I'm heading back next week and couldn't be more excited! I'd love to re-connect with old friends and meet as many new people as possible! Let's high-five, discuss Wizard Rock and complain about movies together! Best place to find me is at the Comics Bakery booth in Small Press L-06. I'll be sharing the table with John Green,  Marion Vitus and an amazing illustrator named Amanda Sartor. And what about Raina Telgemeier? She's be at the Flight Comics booth (#2235), which will have a special Scholastic/Graphix section (featuring Kazu Kibuishi and Jake Parker!). I'll also be swinging by there

Did you write Astronaut Academy?  That's beautiful!  I like the juxtaposition of bluntness with subtext.

And you know, the cute art.
