Fresh Gene Yang interview and a misty-eyed moment or two

Check it out! It's at THE TRADES

He even says nice things about First Second! Things like:

Jonathan: First Second is a new graphic novel publisher. Do you have any opinions on them to share?

Gene: They are beautiful, beautiful people. They're like fairy godmothers, they're so good. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that they exist. I hope our relationship lasts a long, long time.

And I just got the following email from First Second's dahlink Marketing Director, one of the salt-of-the-earth people in publishing, Lauren Wohl:

okay, i love him. i did before. i love him more now. Lauren


Big ups to First Second! Much respect!

Here's to 2007 and the continued growth of a great line of graphic novels!
And even though I've said in previous posts that DEOGRATIAS & AMERICAN BORN CHINESE were the best graphic novels of the year....JOURNEY INTO MOHAWK COUNTRY is ridiculously good.
