Neal Barton just wants to read in peace. Unluckily for him, some local Christian activists are trying to get his favorite fantasy series banned from the Americus public library on grounds of immoral content and heresy. Something has to be done, and it looks like quiet, shy Neal is going to have to do it. With youth services librarian Charlotte Murphy at his back, Neal finds himself leading the charge to defend the mega-bestselling fantasy series that makes his life worth living.

This is a funny, gripping, and relatable tale of life and local politics in middle America,

“[Reed’s] ear for the speech of teenagers is especially sharp, rendering the scenes from high school the most consistently true-to-life and painfully hilarious in the book.” - The Comics Journal

About the Author:

Indie comics writer and illustrator MK Reed lives in Brooklyn. She's an old hand at the self publishing scene but Americus is her first go-round with a big publisher.

Jonathan Hill is a cartoonist & illustrator living in Portland, Oregon. Americus is his first graphic novel.

Review:

“Hill's black and white illustrations, full of clean, bold lines, fill the tale with a sense of drama and action, even when the characters are reading silently. Americus is ultimately a reminder of the small miracles a good book can conjure up, in individual lives and across communities.” - Publishers Weekly
