Rafael and I are thrilled to have created a graphic review of one our favorite books for the New York Times. The book: THE BRIEF WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WAO by Junot Diaz.

Check it out in the Jan 8th Sunday New York Times! This was so much fun to do and we love how it turned out. If you haven’t read Junot’s New Jersey-Latino-nerdboy masterpiece yet read it today! (PS: Not for young kids – the review or the book!)
