The Scent of May Rain

My latest graphic novella, The Scent of May Rain. It’s the story of Esther, a Jewish golem woman created in 1920, who over the course of 100 years becomes a mother, a fighter, an icon– and maybe even her own person?

The creative team made this an incredibly exciting book to work on because everyone added something superlative at every step of the way.

There’s No Crying in Baseball

I didn’t play baseball in school or little league. I don’t know if my friend and comics critic Chase Magnett did either but I suspect not. We do a column over at Comics Bulletin called “Leading Questions.” I say “we” but all I really do is ask Chase an often ridiculous or manipulative question about comics for him to answer.

This week, I asked him what comics make him cry and he wrote a fantastic essay on the impact of a series of Calvin & Hobbes strips had on him in response. A few people have admitted to crying when reading what he had to say.
