Alyssa Cami has been an avid story lover since before she could read, as her parents and grandparents can attest to from the hours logged at bedtime reading from all the classics. When she isn't reading or writing, Alyssa is running to her latest audiobook purchase, or binge-watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" on Netflix. She has her MFA in fiction writing from the University of New Hampshire and currently lives in New York.

Father’s Day is a great time to talk about the new DC comic Superman --- Chapter One: “The Son of Superman” featuring the original super family especially when you get to talk to its inker, Mick Gray. Gray also worked on another epic father-son team, Batman and Robin. Mick Gray (Superman, Batman and Robin, Promethea) is a staple at San Francisco Bay Area conventions --- and so is his daughter, 15-year-old Genevieve, a talented musician and artist.

Rachel Renée has done it again! THE MISADVENTURES OF MAX CRUMBLY: Locker Hero is an incredibly relatable, fun and endearing start to what is bound to be an awesome new graphic series from the creator of The Dork DiariesRead More

Teaser

Max is about to face the scariest place he’s ever been --- South Ridge Middle School! He has been home-schooled by his grandmother until now, and he’s begged his parents to finally let him start attending public middle school. He’s starting to question that choice, though, with the Thomas Silver Problem. As in, Thomas Silver keeps stuffing Max in his locker. If only Max could be like the hero in all the comics he likes to read --- or the ones he draws --- and magically escape the locker and defeat Tommy. Unfortunately, Max’s uncanny, almost superhuman ability to smell pizza from a block away won’t exactly save any lives or foil bad guys. But that doesn’t mean Max won’t do his best to be the hero his school needs!
