Jennifer McGinnis:

Comics as a Second Language

Pictures of You

Pictures of You

Find it on Atomic Avenue

Genre: Drama

Damon Hurd and Tatiana Gill present Pictures of You, the second book in their trilogy about young love and finding peace with one’s past. Miles is an average teenage boy, facing problems many people can relate to: he isn’t athletic or popular, and the girl he likes is oblivious to his affection. Only a few miles away, a perfect stranger named Anna is trying to deal with her own problems. Her parents are fighting constantly and dragging her into the middle of their debates, while her only friend is leaving for college.

Both Miles and Anna are facing loneliness, and though they don’t know it yet, they are destined to find each other and the love and understanding they both need.

Jennifer grew up in an almost-rural part of California and is currently living in the metropolis of Portland. She knows how to fish without bait, find magnetic north, shoot a bow and arrow, and slaughter small animals, but very rarely does any of it.

Jennifer’s favorite comics include PS 238, She-Hulk, Usagi Yojimbo, Fables, and Impulse.
