Drew Weing on The Creepy Casefiles of Margo Maloo

Do you read Heidi MacDonald’s The Beat? You should be reading The Beat. MacDonald is great at shedding light on kid-lit graphic novels and comics news, and is often the source I find these stories. She reports that First Second is set to publish Drew Weing’s The Creepy Casefiles of Margo Maloo next year. Weing’s design and storytelling are skillfull and wonderful – BOOM(!) word-combo: wonder-skillfull – in the preview pages included, and I’m very interested to check this series out!

On Twitter, Weing links readers to three complete chapters of The Creepy Casefiles of Margo Maloo that available to read for FREE:

This Is How You Do A Book Trailer

This is how it’s done.

This is the book trailer for Kairos, a french graphic novel by Author/Illustrator Ulysse Malassagne. Animated by Studio La Cachette. This is a perfect example of two important points. The first point is hand-drawn animation is powerful and deeply engaging to the viewer on a level unique to itself. The second is this book trailer really piques your interest to read the graphic novel itself. Even though the graphic novel is a different medium from the trailer that is animated, it transcends and conveys the story so well that you very much want to go out and read it.
