Announcing…Baby-sitters Club GNs in COLOR!!!

October 9th, 2014

Oh yes…you read that right! This is a long time in the making, and I can finally reveal the news: in 2015, Scholastic/Graphix is re-releasing the first two of my Baby-sitters Club graphic novel adaptations in full color! Here are the covers:

The interiors are being colored by Braden Lamb, whom you might recognize as the colorist of SISTERS! I’ve seen the first round of pages from the first book and they are gorgeous. More details coming soon. I can’t wait to share the final product with you all!

New York City! Sheboygan, WI! (And a few notes and photos)
