Giants Beware! Local graphic novel {heroes come in all sizes...}

We have amazing neighbors + friends. I wanted to introduce you to Rafael + his AMAZING new graphic novel that will come out on April 10th!

Rafael Rosado is a cartoonist who has been in the industry for over a decade and he and his friend Jorge Aguirre created a story for a graphic novel and without an agent they busted ass to the San Diego Comic Con hoping to lay the book into the hands of First Second Books (Macmillan's graphic novel imprint).

Three days later they were offered a contract!
They did it!

The novel GIANTS BEWARE is out 4/10~ WOW!
We are so proud of our local Worthington, Ohio artists!!!

The HERO of the novel is a girl. UM. I love this.
Claudette is awesome + she and her crew make much coolness in this wicked fun ALL AGES graphic novel. We were given a copy by our pal + everyone in the house loves it.
It may already be tattered after a few weeks.
You can pre-order it here! Check out the blog here!

{I was given an advance copy but not compensated for this review as these are pals of mine + I love this book- I just wanted to share it with you all}

 This is the first graphic novel that I have ever loved!!!!!

Preordering... now.

I have a girl who loves girl stories, and we can't find any age appropriate comics that work for her. This will be perfect.
