Who Loves Ya, Babe?
I thought I’d try something new and post a first look at American McGee’s Grimm #2 on my blog. After all, I appreciate each and every one of your who takes the time to read and follow my blog.
Just think of this as a little present from me to you to express my gratitude.
American McGee’s Grimm #2 Preview
Issue 2 will be available for pre-order in the next issue of Previews. So please pre-order the book this Wednesday when you visit your friendly neighborhood comic shop.
I will update this post with the Diamond Order Code as soon as I get it.
Here is the official solicit:
EPISODE 2: LOVE HURTS
Chaos ensues as Grimm enters the romantic comic book world! Join Larry and Sally as they struggle to survive a flesh-craving duck attack, a senile taxicab driver and an army of puppies to be together. Will true love be enough to conquer Grimm? I wouldn’t bet on it!
Without further adieu, here is the fabulous variant cover by Ben Templesmith and first five interior pages by my partner in crime Grant Bond…
Texas Tech Book Chat Update
From Professor Rene Saldana’s blog:
First, check out Dwight’s blog at http://dwightmacpherson.wordpress.com/. He’s the author of one of the coolest graphic novels aimed at the young struggling reader, though I’d also have high school-aged struggling readers pick it up, it’s that good. As a matter of fact, I like the book so much that I’ve asked him to do an author book chat with my students, and he’s agreed. Another cool thing is that C.J. Bott, through ALAN (that is, Assembly on Literature for Adolescents/NCTE) is setting up the chat, and will likely open up the chat to folks interested in Adolescent literature, graphic novels/comic books, or MacPherson himself. Check out ALAN’s site for updates: http://www.alan-ya.org/. Also check out C.J.’s very informative book on bullying in YA literature titled The Bully in the Book and in the Classroom (Scarecrow Press, 2004) and its more recent follow-up, More Bullies in More Books (Scarecrow Press, (forthcoming) June 2009).
I will update this as soon as I find out if the book chat will be open to anyone
crazy enough to who would like to participate.
Th-Th-That’s All, Folks!
That’s all the time I have for now. Thank you for reading–and please take an extra second to respond. I love hearing from you.
