Skim by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki


I just discovered this graphic novel at Floating World. Read this Sequential Art interview to find out more about creators Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki (they’re cousins). You can download a PDF preview from Jillian’s site. I couldn’t decide which I liked more: Mariko’s smart narrative (“You can tell when Lisa’s nervous because she acts like I’m an idiot,” “It feels like there’s a broken washing machine in my chest, or a cartoon alarm clock”) or Jillian’s elegant drawings. I’m excited to see more from them, together or separately.
