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 couldn't find anything BUST-y on the racks for the past couple of weeks, and I know you gals were missing me, so I picked up this short graphic novel that came highly recommended by a couple of friends.
