Scene from a Parisian Comic Book Store. A friend of ours holds up a copy of Giants Beware from the shelves of a comic book store in Paris. Yay, our book is now available in French! “Chasseuse de geants” — Which I think translates as Hunter of Giants.

Giants Beware is one year old today!

That’s right, our baby is one year old today! It’s been an amazing year. We’ve made some new friends, met a lot of fans, learned a lot. And it’s been very gratifying to see children love our characters as much as we do, if not more!

The great John Schumaker, a champion of children’s literature and graphic novels has posted an interview with us on his Watch.Connect.Read blog to help us celebrate the anniversary.


He’s also doing a book giveaway!

Here’s a little something I found the other day: what might be the very first drawing  of what would become our tempestuous redhead. I’m guessing it goes back to the mid-nineties.


Now let’s go have some birthday cake!

The very first drawings…

I recently came across some very early sketches of Claudette and the gang. I pictured them more as street urchins. This was way before we’d figured out the story.

Claudette was called Penelope, and Gaston was Henry.

Jeff Smith & Doug TenNapel On Giants Beware!

Here are a couple quotes about our book from comic creators we love:

“Fast, fun, and joyous to look at! GIANTS BEWARE! is equal parts Dennis the Menace, Little Lu Lu, and Harry Potter!”
— JEFF SMITH(Bone, Rasl)

“Rafael and Jorge have created a great work not just enjoyed by me, but also by my children. There is strong character work, all wrapped up in a keeps-you-guessing ironic story.”

— DOUG TENNAPEL, creator of Earthworm JimGhostopolis

Sneak Peak!
