DRAWING COMICS IS EASY! (Except When It's Hard) is entirely ?and remarkably? the work of a 7 year-old prodigy cartoonist. This idiosyncratic How-To book has already inspired countless peers to write and draw comics, but it also appeals widely to readers of any age, especially those interested in cartooning and the creative process. Alexa Kitchen at only 8 years old was prominently featured in The Sunday NEW YORK TIMES Arts section (7/06) and has been acclaimed in Publishers Weekly, TIME for KIDS and other publications. Alexa's work has been highly praised by Robert Crumb, Will Eisner, Neil Gaiman, Patrick McDonnell and a host of other prominent creators. Nominated in 2007 by the two highest awards in the comics industry: an Eisner Award ("Best Publication for Young Readers") and a Harvey Award ("Best New Talent").

Can't get myself to like those drawings. Not even knowing a 7 yr old did them. Still– "It's cute". Aw, what a harsh thing to write. No, I know something better: "It got me to draw a sad cat. Which I liked a lot. Even though I hate drawing." Now, that's what this book did. Read full review
