Been a busy few weeks around Miranda Mercury Central, with the biggest news being the book’s recognition by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), placing on their 2012 Great Graphic Novels for Teens List. Huge, huge honor for the entire team, and a great way to kickstart the year. In addition, the book was spotlighted as “one of the best OGNs for 2011” by CBR’s Greg Burgas, and appears on Library Journal’s list of 25 Graphic Novels for Black History Month.
There is also another great review posted over at Comic Attack. Here’s a quick excerpt—
“Sci-fi was made for books like The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury, that take the medium to those fun and exciting places you remember as a kid. It’s a fantastic all ages read that has quite a few things that are rare in comics. An intelligent, black female lead that is written as a character first and drawn more normal than most females (of any race) in comics. This is yet another stellar title from Archaia, and I can’t wait to read more of Miranda Mercury’s adventures!”
Thanks to all the folks that have already picked up the book, and if you haven’t quite yet, no time like the present. More soon, and thanks again…
