Author/illustrator graphic novels for YA and MG. Something fluffy and with a good romance. I love found family stories and kids finding ways to resist corrupt power structures. A unique visual style and a distinct perspective is essential. #MSWL

YA fantasy that feels grounded in a contemporary setting and focuses on the lives of teens in highly relatable ways but with magical or speculative components. But not ones that feel urban fantasy. It's a narrow window, I know. #MSWL

AKA MG with a Gravity Falls, Stranger Things (the kids arc), or even Attack the Block vibe. #MSWL

Replying to @dongwon

YA SF that takes its science seriously. Good worldbuilding, strong characterization, emotional honesty. No high concept. #MSWL
