About the Author:

For more than 10 years, Jesse Karp has been a school librarian at LREI (Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School), one of Manhattan s oldest independent schools and a long-standing leader in progressive education. He works with students across the curriculum, from beginning readers to high school students, with all kinds of material, including graphic novels. He regularly reviews graphic novels and picture books for Booklist and contributes to the magazine s yearly graphic novel best list roundup, as well as having written articles for Book Links and American Libraries. He has delivered seminars on the sequential art form at Pratt Institute and Queens College and teaches a graduate course about the history and analysis of the form at Pratt. He has served as a graphic novel panelist at Book Expo America for two years running and served on YALSA s Great Graphic Novels for Teens committee from 2009 to 2012. He co-created the education webcomic Dr. Lollipop and is the author of the young adult novel Those That Wake, which is set in Manhattan, where he lives with his wife and two daughters.

Rush Kress graduated from the illustrious Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Illustration in 1999. He has produced corporate comics for Derivatives Strategy magazine, cocreated the education webcomic Dr. Lollipop, and produced assorted covers for Early Music America magazine. He lives and works in New York City.
