Highly Recommended!

I want to point your attention to a new graphic novel called ETERNAL SMILE, by Gene Luen Yang and Derek Kirk Kim, two big talents in my eyes. Many remember Gene's breakout award-winning graphic novel called AMERICAN BORN CHINESE, while Derek scored a huge hit and awards for his SAME DIFFERENCE & OTHER STORIES

Gene and Derek's new graphic novel is a book I will gladly be putting into the hands of many eager readers. It's a graphic novel in three parts, stylistically very different, but thematically held together for a very entertaining and thoughtful read.

Randy Myers of the Contra Costa Times interviewed both comic creators in today's edition, so please check it out HERE!
