New Smithson!

Duh duh DUH!

And of course there's always the latest Chronicles of William Bazillion!

Good as Lily, by Derek Kirk Kim and Jesse Hamm, just came out, and you should totally read it. It's Derek's first graphic novel since his award-winning debut Same Difference and Other Stories, and it's Jesse's first published graphic novel, period (although really old-school Modern Tales readers may recall his series Bitten Apple, which he stopped drawing about FIVE PAGES from the end, to the eternal frustration of many). Anyway, it's a super cute comic, but my favorite part is right here:

Yup, that's Andrew and me in the first panel, cheering on the food fight. I'm wearing a They Might Be Giants t-shirt, and Andrew's wearing a shirt with Kamandi, The Last Boy on Earth. Jason Shiga's getting creamed in the foreground of panel two. Thanks for the cameo, Jesse!

Okay, time for yet another Overlooked Manga Festival!
