I did another post for The Hub, official blog of YALSA, as part of the semi-ongoing "Outside Our Comfort Zone" series, where Sarah Debraski (another teen librarian) and I pick books for each other to read, then discuss them. As usual, I picked a graphic novel (Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson's excellent Beasts of Burden), while Sarah chose a fairy-tale retelling (Robin McKinley's Beauty) for me. What did we think? Well, for that, you'll have to read the post and listen to the podcast, won't you?

'Doodle' - a Victoria story

As most of you gentle readers probably know, I've got a lot of stories I want to write. Unfortunately, most of them I want to do in comics form, but my own drawing skills are relatively weak, forcing me to work with unreliable and lazy artists. (Hi, Aaron! Hi, Sam! Just kidding!) So I've decided on a compromise: I'm going to do a few short stories from some of my universes, and see if any of them grab people's attention. Hopefully, it grabs your attention enough to give me some money to fund the creation of the full comic. Without further ado, here is 'Doodle', a short story from what will probably be my biggest and most awesome comic, Victoria.
