Yay! Just received Jillian Tamaki‘s Graphic novel Skim (written by her cousin Mariko Tamaki). It looks wonderful, the drawings have a great loose feeling to them, can’t wait to read it.

    This has been my favorite comic book I’ve read this year. I keep looking at it over and over. I hope you like it!

    And if you’d like to hear an interesting CBC Radio One interview with the Tamaki duo, here they are talking about the making of Skim.
    It’s the end interview of the show – I recommend forwarding to the last third of the podcast.

    Wow, yeah. This looks lovely. I may have to pick it up.
