Day 2 of my trip to Minneapolis to the NCTE convention… even though this is the third comic page.

Richard McGuire’s Here truly is mind-blowing. He’s been working on it for a long time but I had never heard of it before this weekend.

Craig Thompson on the other hand is one of my favorite cartoonists. If you haven’t read Blankets, Goodbye Chunky Rice, Habibi, or most recently, Space Dumplins, get on that. Also you can check out some of the cool doodles he did in our books at CXC this past fall.

Cece Bell wrote the tremendous graphic novel El Deafo.

Teacher Comics: Minneapolis Trip, Part One

For the next few days, I’m going to be doing some comics about my trip to Minneapolis, visiting the National Council of Teachers of English convention, and winning one of Penguin Random House’s Teacher Awards for Literacy.

I know these aren’t exactly the kinds of comics I normally do about being a teacher – think about them as being “teacher adjacent” if it makes you feel better.

Also, these comics are taking a HUGE amount of time to produce so I might miss a day or two. I hope they’ll be worth it in the long run!
