Congratulations, Skim!

As you may or may not know, I’m a huge fan of comics, so you can bet I was really happy to hear that Skim written by Mariko Tamaki and illustrated by Jillian Tamaki was shortlisted for the GGs.

I was just in Brussels last week (vacation!) and I got to see the French translation of Skim on the shelves of a few comic book stores there! It was really awesome to see Canadian talent being represented internationally. Check out the picture! It was taken at the shop in the Belgium Comic Strip Centre/Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée.
