Why does Jimmy Gownley Rule?


Wow. What can I say? The latest issue of AMELIA RULES! (#16, Renaissance Press) by artist/writer Jimmy Gownley is in my hands and, well, let's just say it made me feel happy, sad, delighted and a little wistful. Once again, Jimmy shows us that he really knows how to portray kids and the world they occupy. This is THE BEST "kid's comic" out there, bar none, and it's because it's not "written down" to kids, it's written directly AT THEM. And at everyone else, as it should be. Just like in the real world, good things AND bad things happen to these characters... and we're right there with them. This issue wraps up the "Superheroes" storyline and what a finish! Just plain great stuff from a creator completely guiding his creation...

So. Why does Jimmy Gownley rule? Because he's graciously agreed to appear at our Mechanicsburg store on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2006 for autographs and sketches! WOOOO HOOOOO! Thanks, Jimmy... see you there!

You are absolutely dead on with this review Bill. Amelia Rules is always a fun read. It'll be great to have Jimmy at the store on FCBD 2006!
