Announcing my new book, coming soon from various publishers and in various languages. Those of you who’ve been reading the Magic Pen online will already be familiar with it; if not, go take a look. Or you can just read about it here.
I’m a little overwhelmed by the lovely comments we received from some of my cartooning heroes: Alison Bechdel, Scott McCloud and Craig Thompson (see below), and by the publishers lining up to release it in so many countries all at once (full credit for that goes to my fabulous agent Nicolas Grivel).
First release will be in France, from Casterman (October 29). And then, in rapid succession, it comes out in New Zealand (Victoria University Press), North America (Fantagraphics), the UK (Knockabout), Germany (Egmont), Spain (Astiberri), Italy (Bao), Denmark (Fahrenheit) and – actually, I’ve lost count. Nicolas seems to negotiate a new translation every few days.
