On July 22nd through 24th, while attending San Diego International Comic-Con, I ran around to as many of my favorite kids comics creators as I could and asked them all the exact same questions. Keep in mind, exhibit halls are crazy loud and crazy busy, so there is a lot of background noise. Let me know in the comments if you have trouble hearing anything and I’ll translate for you.
The first time I discovered Jason T. Kruse he was sitting at a table in Artists’ Alley basking in the glow of just having licensed his book World of Quest to Yen Press. I bought a copy of the book, read it, liked it, and added it and the second volume to my collection where it has maintained a healthy popularity with the kids in my library.
The next time I discovered Jason I didn’t realize he was the same person I’d met before. Katherine Dacey was raving about Scratch9, a comic she’d picked up at NYCC, but somehow I missed that that Jason T. Kruse was the same as this Jason T. Kruse. In any case, I’m on board now and as equally enthusiastic about both versions of Jason.
