I’m thrilled to be on the inaugural advisory board for this tablet newsmagazine specializing in illustrated content:  “a visual cure for the common news story.” It’s founded by forward-thinking powerhouse Erin Polgreen with the support of New Media Women Entrepreneurs and the International Women’s Media Foundation.

Before getting sucked into comics editorial, I was, and remain, a journalism nerd: as an editorial cartoonist in college, a West Coast newsweekly contributor/founder in the 90s, and an East Coast newsweekly and custom magazine illustrator in the 00s. So I’ve been watching the rise of graphic-narrative journalism with great interest, per the blogroll — everything from Cartoon Movement to the Stanford Graphic Novel Project — and now it’s time to stop watching. Stay tuned.
