Our new roommate is Evan Dahm, who some of you might know from his works Rice Boy, Order of Tales, and most recently Vattu. Yuko is a fan! But luckily not one of those superfans that looks over you shoulder and asks questions and ... w-wait ... Welcome to NYC, Evan!
Regarding the bande dessinée: Thank you guys for all your recommendations, they were mega helpful. I was able to track some things down that will be great for our reference library. Some of you asked what I had picked up in Montreal - I only got two books, a Spirou anthology with a lot of different artists and snippets of stories, volume 1 of Flourent Maudoux's FREAKS SQUEELE, which is gorgeous. It was an impulse purchase, but one that I thankfully didn't end up regretting.
We finally got a new bookshelf, so between putting that together and filling it with books, finishing up the interior of the JW book, and slaving away over the cover, I can comfortably say that books might be driving me a little crazy this week. Maybe one day I'll sit down in front of a TV again. (That was a joke).
We will be at SPX! More details on that next week. See you guys then!
