Token

By: Sarah J.in Artsy

 I have a new art crush.

Joelle Jones won me over in about .2 seconds with her work on this newest Minx graphic novel.

I must admit I feel a kinship with the protagonist, Shira, a curvy Jewish girl with short hair, retro style, and a closer relationship with her grandmother's best friend than with girls her own age.

Alisa Kwitney 's story is a typical high-school love tale but it's got heart, a winning character (and I swear I'm not saying that because she reminds me of me), and a fun setting--Miami Beach in the 1980s.

But I really, really love this book for the art. Jones' characters are real, living and breathing, and even the smallest panels are full of significant detail. Often the art on the Minx books has looked incomplete in black and white, but this book is perfect.
