Shaenon Garrity on Jack Kent

Shaenon Garrity argues that a lot of children's books are great comics. She shares some great scans from Jack Kent's CINDY LOU AND THE WITCH'S DOG, including the above wonderful panel which, as she decribes, and I cannot argue, "is one of my favorite single panels in any comic ever."

"From Crockett Johnson onward, there’s a rich history of cartoonists moving back and forth between the comics industry and children’s publishing, reworking the same basic elements of graphic storytelling for another format, another audience."
