Press Release:
This June, Xeric Award Winner HOW i MADE THE WORLD Hits The StandsDover, NH – Writer Liz Plourde and illustrator Randy Michaels release How i Made the World, their new comic book, in June 2014.
In How i Made the World, a college sophomore’s art project becomes an obsession that spins her life out of control. Strange students and dangerous dreams turn her midterm into a “Monster” – the first story in the debut issue of the Xeric Award-winning comic.
Plourde & Michaels’ work appeared in Lies Grown-ups Told Me, winner of the 2012 Stumptown Comic Arts award for Best Anthology.
Ken Carson, manager of comics retailer That’s Entertainment in Worcester, Mass., says, “‘HiMtW’ is a wonderfully crafted, personal story in the fine indie tradition of Tomine and Los Bros. Hernandez.”
Caitlin McGurk, curator at Ohio State University’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum, described How i Made the World as “…a contemporary and relatable self-published work that still has a ring of classic comic styles to it.”
