Here at the Isotope, there are few graphic novels that have been more hotly anticipated than the latest book by Danica Novgorodoff. She blew our minds with A LATE FREEZE, the winning entry for the Isotope Award For Excellence In Mini-Comics back in 2006. Dropped our jaws designing some of the most applauded comics of recent memory for First Second Books. And, truly, dazzled us with her first full-length graphic novel SLOW STORM.
Her latest punch-to-the-heart has arrived in the form of REFRESH REFRESH. Read an interview about it here. See a sneak peek here. Read even more about it here. And get yourself a copy squirreled away for you and only you here.
Trust me, you are going to want this one.

Come meet your favorite Derby Girl at the Isotope this Friday!
You don't just blindly believe everything you read in the paper, do you? For shame! Didn't your mother tell you to only trust what you read in comic books? Ours did!

Babs Interviews John Layman - click to watch
Missed the incredible CHEW-a-Palooza event at Isotope last weekend? Sad that you didn't get a copy of CHEW #1 autographed? Kicking yourself that you missed an opportunity to get frisky with an "Avian Flu" cocktail? Bummed out you weren't there for the Layman/Crosland reunion? Heartbroken you didn't get to meet John Layman and ask him where he gets all those crazy ideas from?
Well we can't help you with those first ones, but the always fab Babs from Comic Vine (we adore her) conducts a live interview with the rather awesome Mister Layman straight from the Isotope's front door. You'll definitely want to take time out of your busy schedule to watch this great interview!

And while we're all re-living the event, go ahead and check out and enjoy these great party photos from Chunk and witness the eating of the Beet-Pickled Egg thanks to photographer James Masente... and watch this space for the Isotope's official photos tomorrow!
UPDATE: The secret story behind the Beet-Pickled Egg from the culprit himself (w/ lots of great photos)!
