I’ll be participating in a new Marvel anthology called Girl Comics! Check out this contributor lineup (as posted at The Beat, click to read more details!)
“Contributors include Kathryn Immonen, Marjorie Liu, Devin Grayson, Ann Nocenti, Trina Robbins, G. Willow Wilson, Stephanie Buscema, Amanda Conner, Jill Thompson, Louise Simonson, Valerie D’Orazio, Colleen Coover, Molly Crabapple, Nikki Cook, Ming Doyle, Abby Denson, and Carla Speed McNeil. The book is edited by Jeanine Schaefer, and we’re happy to debut the cover of the first issue, by Amanda Conner, colored by Laura Martin.”
“All in all “Dolltopia” is pretty great read. It manages to be joyfully cutesy, funny and sweet while also being thoughtfully deep and intelligent. This is the mark of a great creator, someone who can skirt the line between an almost child-like writing voice and a high-brow social commentator.”
Dolltopia has been getting all kinds of nice mentions on the blogosphere! Here are the latest links:
Dolltopia is a staff pick at Powell’s Books! –
“…reading Dolltopia will remind you of your Barbie adventures, but with a gutsy, 21st-century, revolutionary twist. This is an ode to individuality and self expression.”
-Dolltopia has also been listed in Toronto’s NOW Magazine’s gift guide!
-Howard Cruse gives Dolltopia a nice mention on his blog!
-As does Martin Millar! Read their amazing books!
-Plus a nice review on Things Mean A Lot, a cool literary blog!
