Anyway, I deeply dig the art, style, storytelling, humor and well, everything.

Derek Kirk Kim, on the other hand, clearly loves his work and this collection, which you can see on his website as well as buy cool wallets, is fantastic.

Derek Kirk Kim is one of the very, very few uproariously talented cartoonists out there who's also a crack-shot writer.

Derek Kirk Kim is one of the best comic book artists/writers/graphic novelists out there today. He's up there with Alex Robinson, Seth, and that group of select creators who are making quality books for people who are growing tired of some of the stale, stagnant writing in mainstream comics today. As much as I like Frank Miller, Bendis, and the other people working at Marvel and DC, the writing often seems uninspired. Derek Kirk Kim, on the other hand, clearly loves his work and this collection, which you can see on his website as well as buy cool wallets, is fantastic. He captures not just the Korean-American experience, but the mindset of what it's like to be young and finding yourself. He describes life in California so well (and draws it so well) and it's entertaining to watch characters comment on what it's like to grow up and move out of the neighborhood. The dialogue is great and captures that feeling that when you're talking with your friends, someone needs to write it all down because it's so entertaining. Kim already did. And illustrated it. I loved this book and I'm sure you will too.

I absolutely adore this beautiful, beautiful, beautiful book. I read his stuff before, via smallstoriesonline.com, but I'm girl who likes things in print. Anyway, I deeply dig the art, style, storytelling, humor and well, everything. My personal favorite, besides "Same Difference", has to be either "Hurdles" or "Valentine's Day", yet I love them all... His work truly moves me.

Format: Paperback
Derek Kirk Kim is one of the very, very few uproariously talented cartoonists out there who's also a crack-shot writer. I'm a big comics fan, but my tastes err on the side of the artwork. Derek's book won me over for looks hands down. It's normally an added and rare bonus when good writing accompanies the art that makes me buy a book. Derek's book bore such a bonus. Even more rare is the occurrence of top notch art and quality writing coming from the same creator. Derek must have a small star where his brain ought to be. To be as talented as he is to be literally celestial. To produce such grounded, human subject matter that rings true and promises to outlive fad culture is also super(above)normal. The Xeric grant and the coveted Eisner award could not have been given to a more worthy creator. With or without that prestige, Derek's work deserves your attention. BUY HIS BOOK SO HE'LL WRITE MORE.

If it wasn't for this story, I'd probably still be ingorant of the world graphic novels. I had grown up reading comics, your typical Batman, X-men, etc fan, but never realized the world beyond muscle bound super heros. This is a great and amazing story. The characters pull you into their world and when you're done you wish there'd be more. I love this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good read
