We nearly forgot to mention the newsiest item from First Second publisher Mark Siegel’s diary: Becky Cloonan is working on a book for First Second!
Cause to celebrate! I just got off the phone with Becky Cloonan’s agent Judy Hansen—we’re going ahead with a most EXCITING project, about which I’ll say no more! Glimpse sketches above, from Becky, whom I’ve wanted to work with forever. Oh good, good, good.
And he even gave up a preview page of the mystery project. Becky Cloonan drawing fantasy or historical sword drama? We likes it.
