Happy Birthday to First Second books! [Feb. 3rd, 2016|11:00 pm]
dave roman

This week is the tenth anniversary of First Second Books! To celebrate, Travis Jonker and School Library Journal asked a bunch of First Second authors to redraw the cover of one of our favorite First Second books by another author. I drew a homage to Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant by Tony Cliff. And the amazing George O’Connor (Olympians) did a fun rendition of my Astronaut Academy: Zero Gravity!

It’s been a unique privilege to have my books be in such great company. Love and hugs to everyone at First Second past and present and wishing them another 10 years of great graphic novels to their legacy.

Check out all the great cover tributes over at School Library Journal!

Check back for more information.

You can find me at the NY Comic Con at the following times and places…

Thursday October 8th

Assembling your “Nerd Herd:” Creating a Safe Space for Students in Your School
4:15 PM – 5:15 PM Room 1A05
Despite Geek culture being at the forefront of popular culture today, many young Comic Con lovers feel isolated in their school community. With bullying of young people on the basis of their interests being one of the most challenging problems to overcome, how can teachers help foster their students’ interests and give them a safe place to share them with like minded peers? Educators come together to talk about how they built their “Nerd Herd” and how it has done just that. They share their stories and those of their students on how bringing like minded people together can not only create a barrier against outside negativity but also help build confidence and self-respect.
SPEAKERS
Alex Simmons, John Shableski, Michael Gianfrancesco, Dave Roman, Eric Kallenborn, & Tami Stronach
