About the Author
Experienced dungeon mistress MK Reed is the author of the graphic novels Americus, The Cute Girl Network (First Second) and the forthcoming Pale Fire with art by Farel Dalyrmple (Secret Acres). She also writes and draws the web comic About A Bull. Her work can be found in anthologies like Papercutter, the Big Feminist But, and the Swedish magazine, Galago. Americus was the winner of NAIBA’s 2012 Carla Cohen Free Speech Award, and was a 2011 American Booksellers for Children’s New Voices title. The first chapter was nominated for an Ignatz Award for Outstanding Story in 2008 after its inclusion in Papercutter 7. MK lives in Brooklyn with a very tall nurse.

The art is competent, even expressive. But the story blanded itself below my threshold of interest. Girl meets boy her mother hates. "You're not being fair to him." Turns out Mom was right. Calls kinda boring guy and he pulls her out of the wreckage. She maybe finds out that the guy who's kinda boring but comes running might have something going on. Or maybe she didn't. The end.
The best comics merge skilled scripts with compelling artwork - the result can be more than the sum of the parts. If the script is good enough by itself, or the artwork, that could pull me in and might be as good as the better of its parts. But, when the art is good enough but 'safe', and when the writing doesn't distinguish itself, it can fall to the level of the lesser of its parts, or not even. That, I regret, is where this lies.
