• Slave Labor has announced CAPTAIN LONG EARS, the debut graphic novel from Diana Thung. It’s about a boy, whose father recently died, who pretends to be a space ninja. With his imaginary gorilla friend, he attempts to rescue an elephant at an amusement park. Looks Sendakian but cute.

    Captain Long Ears bears more than a passing resemblance to one of the protagonists of Jamaica Dwyers’s “Weird Fishes”, which was also published by SLG. Wonder what’s up with that.

    I love that SLG continues to put out books that are not the superhero norm! :)
