100 Comics Positives For 2013: Paul Pope In Bed With First Second


It's always a little bit more fun when Paul Pope is around in some way, and it looks like initial sales were such that people are responding strongly to his YA-aimed series with First Second, Battling Boy. What's worth paying extra attention to is the scope of the arrangement that First Second and MacMillan has with the cartoonist: a multiple-book deal, a series expansion, even -- at least for a while -- a space to work. A lot of cartoonists are looking for the stability to create, a half-step above the impulse simply to get stuff out there and more in the real of having an arrangement one can count on for years at a time, to both shape and direct one's creative energies.
