Nice piece by Kate Culkin of Publisher’s Weekly on Channel Thirteen/WNET’s NATURE Comics series. I drew the back cover for the next issue, #3, debuting later this month — which also has stories by Hope Larson, Sabrina Jones, Lauren Weinstein, Tim Hodler, Mark Evanier, and Thomas Yeates. More info to come.
Back in November, I posted a one-pager I did on compact flourescent lightbulbs for PBS’s Nature Comics #2. The comics also featured work by R. Kikuo Johnson, Lauren Weinstein, and Rick Veitch, among others. Well, the Association of Education Publishers just named Nature Comics #2 a 2008 Distinguished Achievement Awards Winner (in the Specialized Audience Instruction/Graphic Novel category). Congrats and self-congrats are in order!
Nature Comics is targeted at pre-teens and teenagers. It includes stories related to Nature shows "Silence of the Bees," "In the Valley of the Wolves," and "The Beauty of Ugly."
