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
