“Over the years, I’ve seen how important comics can be for kids who are reluctant readers. ... This form is a way to understand stories visually, by seeing what characters are feeling.” —Hope Larson
In 2012, Larson won her second Eisner Award, the Oscars of the comic book world, for her adaptation of the literary classic A Wrinkle in Time.
