Tubby Cat and Surly Girl on their first big adventure!

For the record I am a fan of Zoos, field trips and the buddy system. 
Stay with your buddy. Do not take cats to zoos.

This is truly great.

Consider the stakes. The lack of diversity and equity in the publishing industry is not a theoretical issue for us to intellectualize over coffee. It is an injustice. The destruction of libraries and burning of books has historically been used to strip peoples of their history and culture. Those in power continue to limit the ability of those they have subjugated to share their stories. They retain ultimate control of the narrative and their power.

Hi! I'm cosplaying Intern Mauren from WTNV at LeakyCon this year and I was wondering whether I could use your John Peter's OJ design for the cover of my orange juice box? Thanks!!!

Oh my goodness, yes! Just credit me if anyone asks please and I definitely want to see a picture of the whole thing if that’s cool. Thanks for asking!

I need Intern Maureen to walk up to me and say, “Melissa, it may not be the best time to tell you this, but I can’t come to leakycon.” I will devise some sort of prize for this person.

I don’t know where this photo set is from in context, but listen: in my mind, it’s a sitcom/reality show with a possible novelization, and I would watch it forever.

Give it up for Kent and Root Beer Guy
After years of working in a dank cave for beans, our pal Kent Osborne—board artist and writer of scads of your favorite Adventure Time episodes—hits the big time with today’s launch of the six-issue Banana Guard Academy mini-series from BOOM! Studios. Kent’s the writer with Dylan Haggerty on these, and Sakana’s Mad Rupert is the artist. Here’s what BOOM! has to say:

Turns out that there is a lot to being a Banana Guard—but being a Banana is not mandatory. This crazy adventure follows Root Beer Guy as he starts his search for new recruits among Ooo’s citizens. Only the best will do in his quest to protect the Candy Kingdom!

So order yours today, or swing by your local comics shop, if only to give your resounding support of Mr Osborne.

Previously Unpublished Harry Potter Illustrations by Mary GrandPre

In honor of Jo Rowling and Harry’s birthdays being today, here are some previously unpublished illustrations by the original American cover and chapter art artist, Mary GrandPre. They’re so beautiful!! There are a few more, which you can see here.

I’m obsessed with these. The artwork on the books did such a great job of setting that very uniquely Harry Potter atmosphere of whimsy and vibrance and… magic!

I’m so mad they’re reissuing the covers, I don’t like the new ones at all! I’m all for change but they’re literally just worse.

I pass no judgement on the new covers other than I think they are nice and aesthetically sensible, and also, just different. Different isn’t bad. I think they have their own positive points.
