On this week’s live show, we’re welcoming guests… Mel Valentine Vargas (Candlewick’s “Yaqui Delgado Wants To Kick Your Ass: The Graphic Novel”), and Simon Hanselmann and Josh Pettinger (Fantagraphics “Werewolf Jones & Sons Deluxe Summer Fun Annual”).
More About Mel Valentine Vargas’s Yaqui Delgado Wants To Kick Your Ass: The Graphic Novel:
It’s the beginning of sophomore year, and Piedad “Piddy” Sanchez is having a hard time adjusting to her new high school. Things don’t get any easier when Piddy learns that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn’t even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she’s done to piss her off. Rumor has it that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn’t Latina enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent.
And Yaqui isn’t kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back. At first, Piddy is more concerned with learning about the father she’s never met, navigating her rocky relationship with her mom, and staying in touch with her best friend, Mitzi. But when the harassment escalates, avoiding Yaqui and her gang takes over Piddy’s life. Is there any way for Piddy to survive without closing herself off from those who care about her—or running away?
More About Simon Hanselmann and Josh Pettinger’s Werewolf Jones & Sons Deluxe Summer Fun Annual:
In the tradition of the once ubiquitous British hardback annuals comes the Werewolf Jones & Sons Deluxe Summer Fun Annual! One Hundred fun-filled seasonal pages of spoofs and goofs for the whole family to enjoy (no minors allowed)!
Featuring fun appearances by beloved friends of the family such as Megg, Mogg, and Owl… The “WWJ&Sons DSFA” will surely leave you confused, angry, upset, heavily triggered.
Put together with lots of love by Simon Hanselmann and rising underground star and franchise newcomer, Josh Pettinger (Goiter, Power Wash). Pettinger has been diligently screened with a full state police check and is a staunch British monarchist, fully qualified for such a throwback, Britannia-flavored project. Get ready for one of the hottest summers on record (not merely due to rising climate-based anomalies)!
