Reading reading reading

I just borrowed a bunch of comics from some other libraries that I definitely need to get for us. The publisher’s called Minx and its an imprint of DC Comics. Check them out here. We own the PLAIN Janes ones and Token, but now I’ll have to get the others.

Here are the ones that I’ve read. They’re all pretty great.

EMIKO SUPERSTAR

A borrowed diary, a double life and identity issues fuel a teenager’s quest to find herself before she cracks and commits social suicide. Watch Emi go from dull, suburban babysitter to eclectic urban art star compliments of one crazy summer!

GOOD AS LILY
Written by Derek Kirk Kim; Art by Jesse Hamm; Cover by Derek Kirk Kim

What if your biggest competition was…yourself? Following a strange mishap on her 18th birthday, Grace Kwon is confronted with herself at three different periods in her life, ages 6, 29 and 70.

THE PLAIN JANES
Written by Cecil Castellucci; Art and Cover by Jim Rugg

When a transfer student named Jane is forced to move from the cool confines of Metro City to Suburbia, she thinks her life is over. But there in the lunch room at the reject table she finds her tribe: three other girls named Jane. Main Jane encourages them to form a secret art gang and paint the town P.L.A.I.N. — People Loving Art In Neighborhoods. But can art attacks really save the hell that is high school?

JANES IN LOVE

The art attacks continue in this sequel to the acclaimed graphic novel THE PLAIN JANES. The coolest clique of misfits ever plays Cupid and becomes entangled in affairs of the heart. P.L.A.I.N. – People Loving Art In Neighborhoods – goes global when the art gang procures a spot in the Metro City Museum of Modern Art Contest. And the Janes will discover that in art and love, the normal rules don’t always apply.

TOKEN
