I'm extremely honored to have my comics included in two books from the Best American series this year! My story The Carnival, which originally appeared in Mome vol. 14, now also appears in the new Best American Nonrequired Reading 2010 (with a Maurice Sendak cover, ooh la la!) and an excerpt from my book The Lagoon appears in the Best American Comics 2010 (guest edited by my teenage hero-heartthrob Neil Gaiman). I am so so happy to be included in these books with such good company. Both of these were just released, and I have yet to lay my eyes on them and can't wait to do so.
