Announcing a new graphic novel anthology, COMICS SQUAD: RECESS!

In case you missed the awesome news, Jenni, Jarrett Krosoczka, and I have edited a brand new anthology of kids' comics called COMICS SQUAD: RECESS!

It's jam-packed with awesome comics by awesome creators, with each story revolving around the theme of RECESS. Our all-star superhero team includes:

Raina Telgemeier & Dave Roman
Dav Pilkey
Dan Santat
Gene Luen Yang
Eric Wight
Ursula Vernon

... and of course me & Jenni and Jarrett. 

There are a whole lot of new characters, but also some familiar ones: Babymouse, Betty from the LUNCH LADY series, and DOGMAN from CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS.

(Also, in case you missed it, here's an archive of the twitter conversation the three of us used to announce the book to the world.)

Babymouse Mobile Video Games!

I've been MIA from my blog for a bit, but I'm on Twitter more often, so if you're missing me, go to there.

But, in the meantime, lots of cool stuff has been happening! Like BABYMOUSE VIDEO GAMES!

We teamed up with a great kids' game company called SECRETBUILDERS (they do mobile games, plus they have a whole online "world" kids can play in), who made not one but TWO fun and fabulous games:

Babymouse - Pop the Pic Word Puzzle Game

 Babymouse: Our Hero - Spot the Difference Game

Both games are free, and available for iOS (click the pics above) and Android (here and here). Try them out!

Here's a review, including a kid's take on the game.
