Minx has provided CBR News with an advance look at its September release, “Confessions of a Blabbermouth” by artist Aaron Alexovich and writers Mike Carey & Louise Carey. The story of a plucky teenager whose mother has brought home a creepy boyfriend, “Confessions” is 15 year-old Louise Carey’s first graphic novel, and she spoke at length with CBR News about the book earlier this year.
“It was an amazing experience to work with someone on a book,” Louise Carey said, “because there were times when it felt like we were completely in sync with one another, and we both knew exactly where we wanted the story to go (of course, there were other times when we fought over the computer keyboard in our efforts to get our own ideas down, but I’m gonna gloss over those mostly…).”
When you’re done checking out these preview pages, stop by CBR’s DC Comics forum to discuss “Confessions of a Blabbermouth” with fellow readers.
CONFESSIONS OF A BLABBERMOUTH
Written by Mike Carey and Louise Carey; Art and Cover by Aaron Alexovich
When Tasha’s mom brings home an annoying hack novelist boyfriend, Jed, and his deadpan daughter, her dysfunctional family is headed for a complete mental meltdown. But Tasha has her blog, BLABBERMOUTH, as the ultimate weapon – and she’s not afraid to use it. Especially when she starts to suspect that the obnoxious Jed has a guilty secret that goes far beyond his bad prose.
Mike Carey (LUCIFER, Hellblazer, Crossing MidnighT, RE-GIFTERS) teams with co-writer Louise Carey, his 15-year-old daughter, who has written the Diary of a London Schoolgirl for the website of the London Metropolitan Archive and the novel-in-progress Bethany’s Words.
Aaron Alexovich contributed character designs to Nickelodeon’s Invader Zim and Avatar: The Last Airbender. His first published work was the critically lauded witch tale Serenity Rose for Slave Labor Graphics. Next up he is writing and drawing the MINX book, Kimmie66.
