Also, the book’s been getting some nice press! Here’s a quick round up of things that’ve gone up this month:

– First off, a really flattering review from BoingBoing. Koko Be Good: complex and satisfying graphic novel about finding meaning in lifecomplex

– Interview with me via the Wall Street Journal blog, Speakeasy: ‘Koko Be Good’: An Artist Finds Direction Through Cartoons

There should be some more links and events coming up soon and I’ll post those as they come. In the meantime thank you so much to everyone who’s been spreading the word and taking an interest in my work. I really love drawing comics and I hope you like what I’ve done!

    Wow, it figures this book would be released today. I just happened to be browsing the graphic novel section of my bookstore when your book catches my eye. Something about the very minimalist and lacking description of the book on the cover or the flaps, as well as the amazing artwork, made me buy it. Well really I flipped a coin–it was between this an a collection of comic shorts about Korea, but I'm glad this book won. I know nothing of your prior work, but I definitely have a good impression of it and look forward to reading your work, old and future alike. Just thought I'd drop a line somewhere and show some appreciation.

    P.S. I really really do love your artwork and wonder if you've ever done a commissioned work, and would consider maybe doing it in the future?

    I have been waiting a year or so now, (whenever you made the first announcement about the book) for this book to come out. Finally being able to hold it was like a dream come true for me. I sat down in the book store and promised myself I wouldn't read the whole thing but a while later I was already at the end of the book…!

    I won't ramble on because I feel like I'm already creeping you out with my silly fan girl talk, but I just wanted to say its one of my best purchases of the year! Thank you so much for making this book!

    My husband bought me Koko Be Good for our first anniversary. I'd been looking forward to it coming out, and it did not disappoint. Great story, beautiful artwork. The facial expressions! Thanks, Jen!

    Hey Jen, been loving your comics since I saw you in Flight. Real glad to see a full-length work from you. Happened to be at B&N the other day and saw it on the shelf, so I picked it up. Great work.

    I saw your book in our local comic shop here in Belgium, quickly ran through it and I was immediately sold! Bought it on Friday, read it on Saturday and now I’m craving for more!
    It’s a nice story and simply amazing drawings!
    I’m already looking forward to your next book!
