Rachel Freire: Cartoonist!

Friday, April 16, 2010

Readers of the JHU Blog know what a big fan we are of cartoonist Rachel Freire. Sure, she works for us, but she is also one hell of a cartoonist, as anyone who has picked up her mini-comics can attest (indeed, we have Rachel and Vito's new FCHS mini Powder Puff on sale now!).

Rachel's been super-busy lately... We've already told you about the awesome mini-comic that she did with Eric Skillman, Dental Hygiene and Secret Identities (released during MOCCA, this will be coming soon in full color to JHU)... The FCHS graphic novel by Rachel and Vito will be out this summer... You can see her art in a new back-up feature in Savage Dragon #163 (out in August - look for it in June's Previews)... and on top of that, she's got a new webcomic, The League!

We invite y'all to go to http://rachelfreire.blogspot.com/ and http://jointheleague.blogspot.com/ to read the adventures of The League, exclusively online! ("These teenagers get real. ...SUPERPOWERS that is!")
