    Congratulations to Mr. Yang! I’m in the middle of reading American Born Chinese and it’s just amazing. It deserves all the accolades it has been getting!

    Congratulations on American Born Chinese winning the 2007 Michael L. Printz award! That’s awesome! I served on the committee last year and I know that the committee put a lot of heart and soul into the voting process. Congratulations on such an accomplishment.

    This is so fabulous! I served on the committee for the 2002 award, so I also know first-hand just how hard Printz Award committee members work. But not only that, the book deserves every accolade because it’s just simply that good. Congratulations to everyone involved, from Gene Yang to everyone at First Second. What a wonderful thing to happen in your first year of publishing!

    Wonderful news! I just bought this book finally last week. I read a lot of it when it was on ModernTales.com, and loved it then, but to read the finished book, and in colour… It is truely deserving of the attention it’s getting.
    I hope you’ve got Gene hard at work on his next book.

    Edward: Gene is hard at work on several projects! Can’t wait to leak the next one, as soon as I’m allowed to. Hint: he’s writing the script this time, and another ENORMOUSLY talented someone is doing the artwork.
    Thanks for the notes, everyone! Kat: from you especially!
    Hi Mike!

    It is not true suffering ennobles the character; happiness does that sometimes, but suffering, for the most part, makes men petty and vindictive.

    The noble soul has reverence for itself.

    True Religion Jeans der Marke sind sozusagen charismatisch. Stil und Passform kommen an, sowohl auf der Straße als auch auf High-Society-Parties. Die Jeans sind längst Kult geworden und das innerhalb von nur ein paar Jahren. True Religion outlet ist ein Selbstläufer in Sachen Mode und Trend. Das Label trifft genau den genialen Nerv und hebt sich klar vom üblichen Markt ab. Edler Jeanslook, der seinen Preis hat und für den es sich lohnt, sein Taschengeld zu sparen.

    Seit mehreren Jahren gilt Ugg Handtasche als der Lammfellboot und wird auf den Laufstegen in Mailand, Paris und New York gesichtet, bei Hollywoodstars wie auch auf den Strassen dieser Welt. Sie können die Anzahl oder Größe der UGG Boots noch einmal überprüfen und je nach Modell auch noch eine andere Farbe wählen. Lammfellschuhe haben sich schon viel früher äußerster Beliebtheit erfreut, zum nicht wegzudenkenden Trend haben sie sich aber erst entwickelt, nachdem jeder kalifornische Surfer oder Schwimmer mit den praktischen Tretern zu sehen war und Hollywood sich diesen Trend abgeguckt hat

    I remember when I attended the Comics Salon in Erlangen in 1994. I was surprised to find everyone doing artwork, so I rushed out and bought some art paper. I have two wonderful self portraits from Scott McCloud, and a fully rendered “sketch” of Scrooge McDuck from “Legends of the Lost Library”. It’s happening again this Spring, and it’s like Angouleme, but much less hectic. (At least it was in 1994.)
