SuperMutant Magic Academy (Drawn + Quarterly)
Please join us this evening as we welcome best-selling author Jillian Tamaki (Skim, This One Summer) for the launch of her new Drawn and Quarterly graphic novel, SuperMutant Magic Academy! There will be a slideshow presentation and signing to follow.
SuperMutant Magic Academy paints a teenage world that is moody and ennui-filled but also wry and irreverent: the SuperMutant Magic Academy is a prep-school for mutants and witches but their paranormal abilities take a back seat to everyday teen concerns. Wendy, Marsha, Cheddar, Frances, and the other students will be your guides through the D&D games, performance art, unrequited crushes, and spell class tests that are the staples of life at the Academy.
Praise for SuperMutant Magic Academy
"SuperMutant Magic Academy is . . . not just weird, it's oftentimes so completely bonkers and out-there that it leaves you a little shell-shocked. And believe me, that is a huge, huge compliment." --"Autostraddle
"SuperMutant Magic Academy captures all of the teen angst you'll find at a school for magical mutants--or any school at all." --io9
"The humor [in SuperMutant Magic Academy] is sometimes slapstick, but more often it offers ultra-dry observations on modern disengagement. Tamaki is playful and loose with her art, unafraid to be experimental as she draws us into a world where true feelings are the greatest danger. "--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"Though Tamaki’s black and white panels shift from detailed and realistic to dreamy and atmospheric and back again, she consistently and expertly captures subtle emotion and subtext with only a few strokes of the pen. [SuperMutant Magic Academy is] simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious."--Booklist, Starred Review
