OMG, Claudia's hair!

BSC 1

My eleven-year-old self is doing somersaults of joy! Fresh off her recent Eisner nomination for Sisters, Raina Telgemeier is also celebrating the re-release of her graphic novel adaptations of The Baby-Sitters Club IN FULL COLOR by Graphix/Scholastic!

Why do I think this is awesome news? Because CLAUDIA’S HAIR, that’s why:

BSC 3

We all know she’s the artsy one. I’m so glad that in this modern, graphic novel interpretation she’s totally rocking that Manic Panic!

BSC 2

Well that, and I’m glad the story of these classic BFFs is available for a new generation in a new medium that will hopefully be the gateway drug to reading the original books.

Graphix/Scholastic are releasing the color re-releases of the first two adaptations, “Kristy’s Great Idea” and “The Truth About Stacey” on April 28th, and signed copies are currently available for pre-order! If you happen to be in NYC on Free Comic Book Day (May 2nd), and want to rub elbows with an Eisner nominee, Telgemeier will be doing a signing at Astoria Book Shop.
