Frequent PWCW contributor and Beat pal Laurel Maury has been named the new official comics reviewer for NPR. Congratulations to Laurel! Her first piece covers THE RABBI’S CAT:

If you’re used to comics smacking you over the head with superheroes and fantasy, prepare to be seduced and charmed. Joann Sfar’s series about the rabbi and his talking cat draws on the Franco-Belgian artist’s roots to recreate the sights, smells and vibrancy of early 20th century Algeria.

  1. Congrats Laurel!!

  2. Hey, yeah! That’s great for Laurel. I’m impressed. NPR is the big BIG time.

  3. Lawson says:

    Oooh! I lub comics and I lub public radio. She’s puttin’ chocolate in my peanut butter!

    Congratulations Laurel. Now go represent!

  4. Karen says:

    Oh, congrats to Laurel! I met her in the subway after MoCCA and we had a great chat about stuff; she sent me the link to her LATimes review of “Skyscrapers of the Midwest,” which was simply a beautiful piece of writing.

    And now NPR! She’s made it to the Show!

  5. Tom Spurgeon says:

    Is Joann really Belgian? Huh?

  6. “If you’re used to comics smacking you over the head with superheroes and fantasy, prepare to be seduced and charmed.”

    Congratulations. Too bad she started with that line, a standard cliche that all comic books are about superheroes beating each other up. Then again, most NPR listeners probably don’t read comics, so I suppose they are “used” to that.
