I always have a great time with Gwen recording our Young Readers edition of The Comics Alternative podcast and our November show is no exception. In this episode, we take a look at Monster by Walter Dean Myers, adapted by Guy A. Sims with art by Dawud Anyabwile and Hereville: How Mirka Caught a Fish by Barry Deutsch. Although this last title is actually the third book in the Hereville series, Gwen and I briefly discuss the first two books (spoiler-free) to get you up to speed for the third. (But you should read them all!)
Gwen and I both agree that talking about only two books a month is a huge injustice to all the great graphic novels published for young readers each month, so we also discussed four other titles we also hope you’ll enjoy. (You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out what those titles are!)
And next month, Gwen and I will reveal our picks for the best graphic novels of the year for young readers. Don’t miss it!
