New comic in The Horn Book

Share your comments...

The Horn Book is doing a very cool and generous thing during this crisis – allowing anyone to read the full magazine online for free. And it just so happens that I have a comic in the new May/June edition! It’s a special “Breaking the Rules” edition, and they invited a bunch of writers to riff on a time they broke the rules. Check out my comic and all the other great pieces here – just click on the “Access Digitized Edition” link to get the whole magazine.

Rabbi Harvey Q and A

Share your comments...

My very first book, even before I started writing nonfiction, was a graphic novel called The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey. I did three Harvey books – and still hope to do more some day. Meanwhile, here’s a quick video in which I answer some reader questions about the books and show how I draw the Harvey character. The special guest is my son – stuck at home right now, like everyone…

Walking and Talking with Candace Flemming

Share your comments...

Here’s a first: a Walking and Talking comic with social distancing. Usually I interview fellow writers in person wherever we happen to meet, and I use that location for the comic. This time, Candace Fleming is in Chicago, and I’m home in upstate New York. A sign of the strange and scary times, I guess, but I think the conversation still works. See what you think!

Nonfiction Man #2!

Share your comments...

Very excited to share the continuing adventures of Nonfiction Man and his daughter, Anna. We write these comics together, and take turns drawing every other panel. This is my idea of homeschool – writing, history, art, a bit of technology… and, hopefully, a few laughs. See what you think!

While we’re all stuck at home… Here’s a short writing exercise I do a lot in schools – we take a scene from my book Bomb and write our own versions. Let me know how it goes!
